Wendy then went on to sell for the days top price of £2120, leaving the auction with N & SJ Sanderson. 1st prize halter-led heifer and reserve champion was lot 1 from MJ & H Atkinson who were showing Wyredale Asterix Silvia 78 giving 27lts and selling for £2000 to S & IA Robinson, Burton – in – Lonsdale.
