The top price in the female section went to Charles Sackville Hamilton of Malton who sold his pen of second prize shearlings to Linda Barnard for £340. Winning the ewe lamb section was Dai & Cynthia Morris from Carmarthen who realised £180 and sold to Ivan Belton, Wicklow, Southern Ireland. It was Wynne Davies of Pwllheli who topped the price scale in this section with £190 to E Lloyd, Holyhead.

There was a noted number of both Northern and Southern Irish buyers looking for sheep, with the current restrictions it was the scrapie monitored sheep which were helped by this demand.
