Second best was a £1520 bid for a Limousin sired heifer from H R Hayton and Son, Asby Grange, while at £1300 was another by the Blue sire from the Browns. Selling for £1020 was a Limousin cross heifer from the Browns, with another the same way bred from the same home making £1000.
In the steers on offer the top call of £1320 was given for a Limousin sired bullock from D and C E Marston, Easegill Head, with the next best of £1200 paid for a Blue cross steer from the same vendors. (Harrison and Hetherington).
