Earlier in the day the sale of breeding bulls attracted keen bidding with young Limousin bulls selling to £1580 from RH & C Ayrton, Ouzelthorn.

A smaller show of commercial breeding cattle being predominantly older cows with young calves sold to a solid trade in line with other local centres.  Top price of the day was £1500 for a Limousin x cow with bull calf from EJ Hodgson & Son, Lambrigg Head Farm with most lots regularly exceeding £1000.
