A lovely winters day for our annual Christmas Primestock Show & Sale day at Leek, which attracted a large attendance of local farmers, businesses and customers which was great to see. Thank you again
for your continued support at Leek.
A good early month entry with trade for the best strong and vendors from Northamptonshire as well as
Yorkshire and our own surrounding counties.
The Steeples family of Kettering exhibited 2 excellent strong heifers from their Cramar heifer to the days top price of £2240 with their second heifer achieving £2180.
The top 10 newly calved cattle were all £1840 and above to average a very creditable £1972.
Strong milky cows saw spirited bidding with a Shorthorn x 3rd calver from the Howes at Litton achieving £1780 and a strong Friesian cow giving 48kg from Richard
Thompson at £1850.
A big entry already entered for the 20th December with Christmas Show & Sale where mince pies and coffees will be served.
