Lishman’s Champion Scotch Beef Coup

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 tables.

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 with them.”
