"The anniversary sale was back with a bang this year and was great joy to see faces of old and new around a busy ringside that had that "buzz" we've all sorely missed this last year. A fantastic show of cattle forward was aptly met by a frenzy of bidding from purchasers from not only all over Scotland but across the borders from England too. Trade was well up on the year across the board sending vendors home well and truly satisfied with their days trading."
