This year’s show, sponsored by Farmers Guardian, attracted a catalogue of 99 entries with 85 forward.

 

But making the day’s top price of £4,050 – in an event where auctioneers McCartneys described quality as the best for some years – was a July-born Limousin cross heifer from C.M. and W.C. Phillips, Weobley, Herefordshire. Flashy Lassey, bought by C.J. Brooke, Worcester, is out of a Limousin cross Charolais cross Blue dam which herself won 12 summer show championships.

 

Saturday’s show champion was an early September-born, halter-trained roan heifer from J.A.V. Mills and Sons, Llanerchllwyd, Builth. By a Limousin sire and out of a Blue cross Charolais dam, Strawberry Split was selected champion by Chris and Nigel Pennie (Sarkley herd) and went on to make £3,100 to Brian Jones, Pentregwyn.

 

The overall reserve champion was a blue cross steer-bred and exhibited by P.J. and T.A. Jones, Tyisaf, Builth, who are regular winners at this event. The July-born steer, out of a Limousin dam, sold for £2,200 to S.J. Layton, Knoakes Court.

 

Steers sold to £2,750 for a Charolais cross calf from J.M. Lewis, Pumpsaint, Llanwrda, Carmarthenshire, purchased by the well known show team M.J. and J.A. Pidsely, Devon.

 

In the un-haltered classes, top honours went to Mac, a Limousin steer bred by D.G. Lewis, Cefncoed Mawr, Llanwrda, which later sold for £2,100 to Lucy Jones, Devon. Noteworthy was a pen of cattle from D.H. Morgan, Nantgwynne, Llangadog, who sold heifers at £2,850 and £2,700, and a steer at £1,600.

 

There was a virtual 100 per cent clearance, with steers averaging £1,434 per head for calves averaging seven months of age. Heifers averaged £1,723 per head.
