As Alec, from Rodways, opens the auction, Tony's a bit taken back by the turnout for the farm sale but is disappointed to see Helen without Pat. Pat's keeping herself busy building towers with Henry. Helen's not given up thought, and is going to try again to persuade Pat to join them. Tony thanks Ruth for coming and Helen's pleased to see Rob turn up. He tells Helen that they've made an offer for one of the assistant herd manager jobs and are waiting to hear back.

With the auction underway, Helen checks on Pat and tries to persuade her to come outside. Pat doesn't think it would help. She just can't bear to see her lovely herd broken up. Helen's surprised when Pat changes her mind. So is Tony. He's delighted that Pat joins him and they hold hands for the final part of the sale. She realised she couldn't leave him to do this on his own.

With the sale over, Tom tells Helen that the herd should all be gone by Tuesday - except for "lonely cow", who Tony spends a quiet moment with. He knows she'll miss the rest of the herd - and so will he.
