An outstanding show of cattle on offer and a real credit to all the vendors. Trade was fantastic throughout with purchasers coming from all over the country, as far north as Fife and down to Norfolk. With the sale average being up £181.39 on last years record prices and 111 more cattle sold, it ensured that vendors went home delighted with their returns.

We would like to thank the Sponsors, Capontree Vets, and the Judge, Mr Richard Walton, Darlington who awarded The Championship to a terrific British Blue bullock from A. & J.N. Story, Newbiggin, which later realised £1,170, the Reserve Champion went to W.G. & H.M. Kyle, Spoutbank for a British Blue heifer which sold at £1,100, both of which were purchased by the judge. The cup for best Charolais was awarded to Messrs Kyle, Spoutbank for a 10 month old heifer selling at £920 and purchased by Messrs Blyth.
