Anniversary Show & Sale of Store Cattle

16th August 2019

A fantastic catalogued entry of 944 cattle was forward for the August Show and Sale. The show was kindly sponsored by Murray Farmcare, Rickerby Ltd, Zoetis and Dodd & Company, Accountants. Judging was in the capable hands of Mr Michael Atkinson, Ripon who had a great entry before him for the show. After some deliberation the Championship rosette was awarded to the first prized Limousin Heifer from W & R Lawson, Stubbsgill, Distington. This tremendous heifer later sold for £1240. Reserve honours went to the first prized Any Other breed Steer, a great Charolais from TB Stamper & Son, Harrot Hill, Lorton which sold for £1235.

A great trade was witnessed throughout with a crowded ringside of buyers travelling from all over the country. The days’ top price of £1355 was paid for another super Limousin Steer from TB Stamper, Harrot Hill. This fantastic run of Bullocks went on to average a staggering £1264. Heifers sold to a top price of £1300 for a Limousin from the impressive run of Messrs Harryman, Keskadale, Keswick. Young Bulls sold to a top of £1105 for a British Blue again from Messrs Harryman, Keskadale.
