A small show of dairy cattle with just 16 down the shippon, but a good show nonetheless. Judging was undertaken by regular supporter Robin Jennings from South Stainley taking the pressure of going from showing to judging and didn’t deliberate long over the entrants picking a David and Suzy Lawson heifer that was giving 20 litres and calved 21 days, the champion then proceeded to take top price of the day £2020 to Wick Williams, Nantwich.
