Special May Show & Sale of Store Cattle competing for the Jonny Skelton Memorial Trophy

6th May 2022

The ‘Jonny Skelton’ Show and Sale attracted a super entry of 974 store cattle and a grand ringside of buyers to ensure another fantastic trade at this prestigious sale.

The show was kindly sponsored by Lloyd Motor Group, Armstrong Watson Accountants and Gate Tyres. Judging was carried out by a capable young stocksman, Mr Josh Pearson, High Plaskettlands. After doing a professional job of the judging Josh awarded the ‘Jonny Skelton’ Memorial trophy for the Champion Animal to the Limousin Heifer from T Trafford & Son, Peter House, Bassenthwaite. This heifer later sold to the days top price of £1820 purchased by Mr L Skelton. Reserve honours went to Mr P Edmondson, Seathwaite, Borrowdale with a Limousin Steer which sold for £1700. Feeding Bulls were a ferocious trade leaving sellers delighted. Topping at £1515 for a Limousin from D&MA Wilson, Lamplugh Hall, Lamplugh.
