STORE CATTLE –  At the weekly store cattle sale attracted another bumper entry of 414 which is fantastic for the time of year.  Strong well fleshed sorts remained very much in demand, however leaner and smaller types saw a more muted enquiry.  The sale topped at £1310 for a very well fleshed Limousin x heifer which was consigned by Messrs McKie, Lawrence Holme, Wigton.  Bullocks sold to £1300 again for a fleshy dairy bred Limousin which was brought forward by Messrs Miller, Tarn Lodge, Brampton.
