Judge, Mark Harryman, Pickering, awarded the £1,000 supreme prize to the female champion, a May 2015-born heifer out of a pure Limousin cow by a British Blue bull. It went on to sell for £3,400 to Julie Sedgewick, Aycliffe, Co Durham.

 

Reserve overall went to the reserve female, a Limousin-sired heifer of the same age which sold for £1,600 to an undisclosed buyer.

 

Limousin-crosses lifted the male championship and reserve awards with the top spot going to a May 2015-born steer from Martyn Archer, Wark. It was knocked down for £2,000 to Messrs Bentley, Thirsk.

 

The reserve from Nicky and Ian Robinson, Capheaton, sold for £1,450 to Ian Grainger, Wigton. The second prize unhaltered Limousin-cross steer from J. Lee and Son, Morley Hill, made £2,200 to Andrew Ewing, Annan.

 

Outwith the show, a highlight of the yearling steers and heifers section was a run of 10-month-old pure-bred Charolais steers from Messrs Milburn, Loadman which peaked at £1,300 for a hefty pen of nine bullocks which, along with 12 others sold to John Otterburn, Helmsley to average £1,230.

 

A mixed show of older stores were easier on the week selling to £1,310 twice. First for a big Charolais from Messrs Eggleston, Thornham Hill which was followed by a Limousin from David Carr, Highwood, both going to Foley Brothers, Capheaton.

 

A run of shapely Limousin crosses from Messrs Allgood, Nunwick peaked at £1,305 for steers and £1,190 for heifers and the annual run of Charolais-cross steers from Messrs Thompson, Bishop Auckland, peaked at £1,250 and averaged £1,115 for 43 sold.
