NWA Kendal held an outstanding show of predominantly 10–12 month old cattle were put before a huge ringside of buyers and despite the unseasonal weather, everyone came with orders to fill.

The pre-sale judging saw a fantastic show of cattle put before our judge, Louise Todd from Lincoln. Who, after judging the classes, awarded not only the championship rosette but also the reserve championship to Richard and Janet Gorst of Mutton Hall, Killington. The Judge also backed her decision during the sale by purchasing the champion, a 12 month old British Blue Bullock for £1,200 and also the Reserve Champion, an 11 month old Blue Heifer for £1,100.
