Lishman’s Butchers in Ilkley has achieved a major meat coup
after securing championship-winning prime Scotch beef.
Beefed up for Christmas - Ilkley butcher David Lishman, left, with the champion Scotch beef and farmer Steven Wilson, who exhibited the title winner.
David Lishman, owner of the Leeds Road shop, travelled north of
the border to outbid other butchers for choice cuts from the supreme
champion animal at the annual Christmas show staged by leading
Scottish supplier Macduff Beef at Wishaw in Lanarkshire.
He bought the “roastings” – prime steaks and
roasting beef - from the victorious Scotch beef heifer, exhibited
by Steven Wilson, of Wester Hill Farm, near Glasgow.
The meat is now being allowed to fully mature in Lishman’s
in-house beef maturation unit in readiness for customers’ Christmas
David explained: “Although we concentrate predominantly on
sourcing Yorkshire beef, in order to meet customer demand over
the busy festive period we also purchase some of the best beef
in Scotland to make up any potential shortfall.
“Macduff Beef is a co-operative of 15 Scottish farmers producing
the highest quality naturally reared beef and we are among around
only 12 butchers in England who have established supply partnerships
