Petch family reserve champion claims £2,450 Craven Dairy Auction top price
Robin Jennings, from Hill House Farm, South Stainley, Harrogate, won his first Craven Dairy Auction championship of 2020 with his only entry, a commercial newly calven heifer at Skipton Auction Mart’s second February show and sale. (Mon, Feb 24)
He did it with an eight days-calved 32-litre home-bred from his long established and milk-rich Sunray cow family, which sold for £1,980 to Alf Townsend, of Southfield, Burnley. Show judge was Alan Middleton, of the Beamsley-based Hartley farming family.
