RD Elliott sold under 12 month old Simmental bulls to £1350 and TH&K Wood headed the bulls over 12 months at £1510. Light weight bulls very sought after as the number dry up with nearly all either side of £1000. Trade was very good throughout with a number of buyers unable to make a start.

Light lean Continental Cows £800-£950 and amongst the Natives Angus sold to £970 and Shorthorn to £1160.
