The under 10m.o saw Davis Dairies hit £825 for Lim x Steers & £750 for B-Blue x Steers, whilst JC Watson topped that at £795. A Hurn & Partners sold Simmental x Steers at £805 & £790 for Angus x Steers, J Delph sold Lim x Steers to £845, Ian Stiff sold Lim x Hefs to £835. R Criddle hit £900 also for Lim x Steers.
