A cattle auction is always a huge spectacle. Whether it’s held in Texas, Argentina or, here, on the outskirts of the SPACE Agricultural Salon trade fair in Rennes, France, it’s always quirky and entertaining. But ultimately it’s all about business. Ordinary calves often cost only about €200, while good breeding bulls are rare and therefore expensive. Top prices of €100,000 are not uncommon.
