Lund Bros Suffolks claim red rosette at Skipton gimmer lambs showcase
Local farming brothers Stuart and Stephen Lund, of West Farm, Litton, won the show class for Suffolk gimmer lambs at Skipton Auction Mart’s latest store lambs show day. (Wed, Sept 5)
Their pen of ten, by tups from the Lawn and Reeday families in Skipton and Hetton, went on to sell for £92 per head.
While running both Suffolk and Swaledale flocks, the Lunds’ main stock in trade are North of England Mules, with 300 on the ground currently, all hill-bred at between 1,000 and 1,950ft. They keep back the best for breeding, selling others at Skipton’s high profile NEMSA sales each autumn.
