The packed crowd saw Colin Whitelock of Gargrave take top honours with a tremendous British Blue x bull selling for £460 with his reserve champion limousin bull reaching £450. Other top prices for Continental bulls £470, £460, £450 x3 & £415 with top price heifers today £450, £440, £410, £400 x2, £380. Native calves hit a higher gear today especially with some strong calves from Alan Middleton of Hartley’s, Bolton Abbey topping at £355. Some handy Limousin calves from GCL Stephenson, Kirkby Lonsdale sold away nicely with heifers past £300 and bulls to £360 for month old calves. A big thank you to Martin Hutchinson of Mixenden for judging the show with the next calf show coming on the 7th May.
