New auction record in fantastic rearing calf show at Skipton
In a fantastic show of rearing calves, Phillip Summers set a new auction record price when selling his champion for £710 at Skipton Auction Mart this week. (MON, MARCH 16)
Mr Summers, of Clayton, Bradford, had never won the calf championship at Skipton before.
His six-week-old British Blue bull, a suckler-bred calf out of a pedigree Limousin cow and by a Genus bull, emerged as champion at the Spring Calf show, before selling for the new top price record to regular buyers Vickers & Richardson, of Scarborough.
