Gallaber Blocky, shown by father and son Tom and Ian Sedgwick, of Gallaber Farm, Burton-in-Lonsdale, is by the prolific Limousin sire Rocky, whose first two bulls sold for £13,000 and £14,000, out of the dam, Gallaber Umist.

The victor was returning to Skipton after first appearing at the mart’s Northern Limousin Extravaganza, the inaugural show for breed juveniles in May.
