The article offers highlights of the eighth annual show and sale of show potential cattle held at Ruthin, in Derbighshire, North Wales. Topping trade was a sweet black British Blue cross heifer from Trefor Jones, Caernarfon which sold for £3,000 to Tecwyn Jones, Llanrwst. Having judged the calf classes, Phil Sellers, Derby, backed his convictions by taking home the champion and reserve champion exhibits which are likely to show up on the 2008 show circuit. Taking the championship title over the 104 cattle on offer were B and J Griffiths of Newtown.
