The sale topped at £740 for a ring full of 6 Hereford bullocks from Mr TW Fawcett, Little Blencowe Farm, purchased by Messrs RG Todd, Crosby Hall, this consignment of 25 Hereford bullocks and heifers, 9-10-months-old, averaged £605, £100 per head dearer than vendors expectations.
A much larger show of young calves was on offer, selling to a fast trade. Messrs Turnbull, Monks House, topped at £470 twice for 8-week-old British Blue bull calves, purchased by local farmers.
Younger 6-week-old British Blue heifer calves achieved £365 from Messrs Wilson, Thackwood Farm, and calves as young as 3-weeks-old achieved £390 from Messrs AD & FE Elliott, Askrigg Hall, purchased by Messrs J & A Wear.
