Champion was A Shearling Ram from The Fort Family of Brighton House, Steeton. Sired by Clansman, he went on to sell for 1,000gns to Tim Riley, Hebden Bridge. In a year when Lleyn Females have generally been less money, Skipton had a solid trade for Gimmer Shearlings to record an average on a par with last year. The clearance rate for rams was also good with the usual strong trade for commercial types. A poor show of ewe lambs this year were not up to the usual size seen at Skipton and the average of £77 reflects this.
