WEANERS –  The weaned cattle proved harder to sell once again although a very busy ring side of buyers demand was still low.  Top quality cattle and strong stores once again proved very good to sell but again smaller and plainer ones were harder to cash.  Topping the trade on the day was a British Blue bull from Uskstar Ltd, Oakghyll Farm, Brampton peaking at the sale at £1005.
