North East Livestock Sales show and sale of suckled calves was kindly sponsored by Mole Valley Country Stores and expertly judged by Mr R Alder, Kirkley West Thorne.

A very good show of 302 young cattle were well sold, with the vast majority meeting today’s in-spec quality demands.

A very worthy champion was a Charolais heifer calf, shown by TM Thompson, Howick Seahouses, and bought by the judge for £1140. A tremendous consignment of 37 Charolais and Limousin cattle were also exhibited by Tom, who returned an overall average of £1011.
