Another fine show of 276 head last Monday night met with a good trade for most types of cattle.

However better weather conditions meant many farmers were in the field and poorer lots were easier in price.

Steers sold to £1,340 for 605kgs, heifers to £1,310 for 640kgs and fat cows topped at £1,100.
