Great Annual Show & Sale of Suckled Calves

18th October 2019

The Annual Show and Sale of Lakeland Suckled Calves saw a marvellous show of quality cattle which was a credit to the vendors. The Show was judged by Mr David Jarman who commented on the great quality put before him. Overall Champion went to the first prized Limousin Heifer from I&R Millard, Old Hyton and later achieved the days top price of £1120 selling to the judge. Reserve honours went to B&J Hodgson, Woodend with a Limousin Steer achieving £935. Trade was very pleasing no the year being in excess of other outlets. The Sale was kindly sponsored by Dodd&Co Accountants, Fulton Land Rover, Rickerby Ltd, Surecalf, Macmin and The North West Limousin Breeders Club. The days second top price of £1005 was for a pen of 3 Limousin Steers from W Atkinson & Son, Demesne. Bulls topped at £935 for a Limousin from M&JI Slater, Rose Cottage.

All vendors went home delighted with their days trading. The second suckled calf sale will be held on Friday 8th November. Vendors can enter cattle with confidence to the office on 01900 822016.
