Sutton’s David Smith champion at Skipton rearing calf highlight
Summer show attracts bumper 187-strong turnout
South Craven dairy farmer David Smith was supreme champion at the Skipton Auction Mart’s summer rearing calf show. (Mon, Aug 17)
Mr Smith, who runs his Holstein Friesian commercial dairy herd at Bent Farm, Sutton-in-Craven, last won the Skipton calf championship in March, 2013, and, more than two years on, repeated the feat at the latest renewal when his first prize British Blue-cross bull calf was awarded the overall title by judge Richard Ogg, of Scunthorpe.
