WEANERS-  In the weanling section saw a slightly smaller show of cattle and demand was good from start to finish.  Top price on the day was for a pair of Simmental x bulls from Messrs Goldsbrough, Oakrigg Farm, Moffat peaking the sale at £1300.  There was some very nice runs of Limousin x and Charolais x heifers and steers.  Topping at £1200 was a good strong bullock from Messrs Thompson, Edenbanks, Cumwhitton with other Charolais bullocks from Messrs Watson, Oakbank at £1035 and Messrs Langcake, Isel Old Park selling at £1025.  Grazing cattle once again proved popular and saw a very strong ringside of buyers.  The dairy bull trade was much dearer on the week seeing a pen of 8 Holstein Friesians at 7 months old selling for a very good £415 from Messrs Weightman, High Wood Nook, Wigton.
