Trade for the females on offer here at Carlisle has been steady, with few lots stirring the ringside into any serious bids.

A run of young heifers from the Watsons’ Saunders herd peaked at 1450gns for Saunders Evita, a Saunders Rijinsky heifer out of Saunders Sabrina, a Rake Terrence daughter. This run of heifers would look cheap on the current commercial trade and may well have made some good cows for a lot of herds given the chance.
