The Annual Autumn Prize Show & Sale of Store Cattle was held at J36 Rural Auction Centre on Thursday. The pre-sale judging was carried out by Frank Pooley of Chorley who had some outstanding show cattle put before him and after judging some big classes of cattle he awarded the Championship Rosette to a cracking 12 month old Limousin x bullock from JG & PH Thompson of Selside. The Reserve Rosette went to PJ & B Airey of Sedgwick for a 15 month old British Blue Bullock which sold for the day’s top price of £1510.
