A reduced entry of 500 Outfits of Hoggs and Ewes with Lambs at Foot was forward under drop and go conditions for what would have been the David Westgarth Memorial Trophy. The trade achieved far exceeded all expectations being electric for all classes. Top price of the day was £140 per life for a Pure Texel Ewe with Beltex Gimmer Lamb at foot from Woodhow Farm, Wasdale and was purchased by Andrew Kirkbride. Mule Hoggs with Lambs at foot sold to £130 per life from Winter Bros, Clickham purchased by Ross Sizmur Livestock. Many commented that the trade of the day would be the Herdwick Ewes and Lambs which sold to a top of £50 for Correct Ewes with Single Lambs from DA Race, Burnthwaite Farm. This section averaged a staggering £45.21 per head.
