Skipton Auction Mart once more proved a happy hunting ground
for Pateley Bridge father-and-son farmers Joe and Trevor Stoney
when they achieved back-to-back championship successes at the
September show and sale of almost 7,500 store lambs at Craven
Cattle Marts’ Skipton Auction Mart. (Wed, Sept 6).
Trevor Stoney, left, with his Masham wether champions, joined by
judge Bob Lloyd.
The Stoneys, of White Wood Farm, again sent out the victorious
40-strong pen in the prize show for Masham wethers, judged by Bob
Lloyd, of Abergele in North Wales, to retain the Craven Cattle
Marts Trophy and I’Anson Shield.
The title winners sold for the joint top price of £36 per
head, equalled by the second prize pen from JM Wilson & Sons,
of Beckwithshaw. JK Wilson, of Blubberhouses, had the third prize
pen, which made £34 each.
Skipton Auction Mart general manager Jeremy Eaton said there was
particular demand for long keep lambs.
