Huck family claim Skipton suckled calves championship
At Skipton Auction Mart’s annual autumn highlight for this year’s crop of suckled calves and over year store cattle with show potential, Austwick mother and son, Janet and James Huck, presented both the champion and reserve in the 2016-born suckled calf show class. (Wed, Oct 26)
The champion was a Blonde heifer, out of a three-quarter Limousin cow, sired by Shapfell Esquire, which made £1,240 when selling to Thomson Bros, of Pickering. The Hucks’ reserve champion, another Blonde, sold for £1,180 to Edwards Farm Butchers in Burnley.
