Baines family prime cattle champions again at Skipton
The Baines family, from Trawden in Pendle, Lancashire, sent out another in a long line of prime cattle champions at Skipton Auction Mart’s August show. (Mon, Aug 3)
Jim Baines and his son Paul were responsible for the latest victor, the first prize 560kg Blonde d'Aquitaine-cross heifer, bought at an earlier Skipton store cattle sale.
It fell for a price-topping £1,789, or 319.5p/kg, to Kitsons Butchers in Northallerton, who returned to the ringside after purchasing three prime cattle at the July show, including the reserve champion, also from the Baines family.
