Metcalfe Suffolks top performers again at 2nd Skipton store lamb show
Skipton Auction Mart’s second major seasonal store lamb sale of 2015 saw a repeat win in the show class for pens of 50 Suffolk-cross lambs for RD Metcalfe & Son, from Grange Farm, Brearton, north of Harrogate.
Robert Metcalfe, who fulfilled a long-held ambition when sending out last year’s champion pen for the first time, emulated that success at the latest renewal with a strong packet of lambs that earned high praise from show judge David Pennington, of Mill House Farm, Chaigley, Clitheroe.
“There were some very good lambs in the show, but the victors were the most even and best drawn pen. Every lamb was alike,” noted the adjudicator.
