Topping the sale at £6500 was the overall champion West Biggins P1 a Highberries H2 sired ram lamb out of a Ridding K1 from the Reed Family, Lands Farm, West Gate who continued their current success turning out a wonderful pen of strong well made flashy, and well bred ram lambs.

Our judge Chris Pears, Fell, Fell Side House Farm, Caldbeck had an unenviable job selecting his prize winners from what was said to be one of the best turnouts of Bluefaced Leicester rams seen so far at this ever increasing sake in terms of quality and reputation.

Mr Pears awarded the overall reserve champion to the second placed ram lamb, Low Tipalt P005 which was sired by Low Tipalt N001 and out of Old Hemley J007. This lamb later went on to sell for £900 to Messrs Slack, Stoneriggs, Hilton.
