Trevor Hardaker repeats Craven Feather Auctions championship success
Rhode Island Red poultry breeder Trevor Hardaker enjoyed a repeat championship success at the Craven Premier Poultry show and sale at Skipton Auction Mart. (Sat, Sept 5)
As in 2015, Mr Hardaker, from Lower Dunsforth, between Boroughbridge and York, lifted the title with three pullets, whose breeding lines go back to a strain from renowned Rhode Island Red man, Jack Butterworth, of Preston. One of the trio also won the best soft feather show class at this year’s Egton Show. They sold for £110, top price in show.
