An increased entry of 138 sheep were met with much interest resulting in a buoyant sale.
Andrew Dixon, Kendal, was the invited judge who equipped himself very well to deal with the competitive classes put before him.
The champion was a Gimmer Shearling, shown in a class of 15, from David and Gill Newbould, Dallowgill, and later sold to H Barker, Kirkbymoorside for 1050gns.
In Reserve place came Dr & Mrs Horner, Whitby, with a shearling ram, knocked down at 700 gns to John Dawson and Family, Clapham.
