Sat 20 October 2018
The Virtual Dispersal of the Crackleybank Pedigree herds of British Blues and Limousins for Paul Walker were hotly contested by a strong company of buyers at Worcester.
Quality was the order of the day with all cattle shown in top form and a credit to the owner.

A show heifer having won second at Royal Welsh Show 2016 was hotly contested Crackleybank Iron Candy and hit 3,200 gns and taken by K Morgan, Almeley, Hereford.
