Some 2146 store cattle and suckled calves were forward at Hexham and Northern Marts special May show and sale.
A packed ring of buyers witnessed a strong show of cattle of all classes. Although trade in general was easier on the week, demand remained strong for quality sorts and despite a late finish, steady trade maintained to the end of the sale.
Prior to the sale, Brendan Kelly from Ballymena, Co Antrim awarded the overall championship to Alan and John Dixon, Chairdon with their Belgian Blue cross heifer, which later sold for £750.
The reserve ticket was taken by regular Hexham goer John Smith Jackson, who sold his Limousin steer for £720.
