The pre sale show was left in the very capable hands of young breeders Mr Bobby Tyson and Mr Jack Black placing Anthony Hartley, Turner Hall 1st prize shearling as Overall Champion and selling to 1000gns. Claiming the Reserve Champion rosette was Messrs Thompson, Climb Stile with his 1st prize 2 shear ram selling to 1600gns.
A larger entry of Swaledale rams were forward, which was kindly judged by Mr David Mallet, who placed Messrs Capstick, Whicham Hall Overall Champion with his 1st prize aged ram, selling to the day’s top of £900. Messrs Capstick sold another aged ram, sired by the Champion to £800.
