Earlier in the day 73 calves were forward at the Special Christmas show & sale of rearing calves. A tremendous entry of show calves were presented for judging which was carried out by Mr Jim Whitworth of Bolton-le-Sands. Championship honours were awarded to Geoff & Marilyn Wilson, Scale House for a British Blue x Bull calf which later went on to sell for £430 to the judge after frantic bidding from the ringside of 18 buyers all keen to secure calves.
