Big day at Skipton Auction Mart

A big, big day - and one for all the family - looms at Skipton Auction Mart, on Saturday, September 2, when the annual Rare & Native Stockbreeder Auctions and midsummer festival of Border and Beswick trading are coupled with the latest in the bi-monthly series of Agri-Trader Auctions.

The show and sale of rare, minority and traditional breeds, including sheep, cattle, pigs, poultry and waterfowl, is once more sponsored by Gray’s of Shenstone, Staffordshire – one of the UK’s leading supplier of Border Fine Arts figurines.

The event is again being staged in association with the Dales Support Group of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and the prize fund includes £150 for the sheep champion and £100 for the cattle champion.

There are plenty of attractions throughout the day, which runs from 9am to 4pm, beginning with the Gray’s Border Fine Arts event, which includes a free prize draw for a limited edition model worth £295.

Of all-round family interest are Shetland pony and trap rides, display of working tractors, The British Legion Band, spinning, knitting and other demonstrations, along with craft and food stalls, many promoting locally grown produce.

Also on the menu are Craven Feather Auctions of poultry and fowl, plus Agri-Trader Auctions featuring sales of machinery, reclamation and salvage, garden, antique, homemaker and lifestyle lots. Entries for all auctions are open until the time of sale.
