We are not able to provide this information for all months since the current scheme began in 2006 as the processing time required would incur disproportionate costs. However, the attached spreadsheet contains details of the pedigree breeds, and average prices paid for cattle, in each month of 2018 which was used to support TB table valuations.

Please note the animals were sold at auction market in the previous month to the Compensation Month shown. The prices shown are subsequently rolled over a six month period for the purpose of TB pedigree table valuations.
