Reserve champion was the female champion and winner of the unhaltered Limousin cross heifer class from Mr Smith-Jackson. It sold for £2,700.

 

Outwith the show, trade was firm, although older, forward stores were easier on the week. Leading this trade was a 20-month-old Limousin cross steer from Messrs Milburn, Holling Hill, which made £1,325.

 

The bulk of the catalogue was yearling types including a consignment of 16 from Messrs Lee, Harwood Shield, which saw steers sell to £1,235 and heifers to £1,320 to average £1,148.
