It was a full house for the store and breeding cattle section with a total of 529 head on offer.

The very large entry had attracted purchasers from as far away as North Yorkshire and Norfolk and what appeared to be most places in-between. Trade was outstanding with steers to £1,330, heifers £1,115, feeding bulls £1,025, cow and calf outfits £1,700 and stock bulls £1,920.
