Lambert Shearling Ram Again Champion at Skipton Dalesbred Show

The Lambert farming family – husband and wife David and Christine, and their son Robert - of Woodend Farm, Raydale, Askrigg, landed a third championship success, including back-to-back victories, at the annual show and sale of Dalesbred rams at Skipton Auction Mart. (Tues, Oct 30)

The Lamberts, who trade as AD & CH Lambert, past champions in both 2003 and 2006, took supreme honours again this year with their first prize shearling ram, by a Clapham-based John Kelsall ram.

Royston Baxter, of Steeton, a former Skipton Auction Mart foreman, presented his own perpetual trophy to the victor.

The reserve champion and first prize aged ram was presented by local exhibitor John Horner, of FW Horner & Son, Redmire Farm, Buckden. The three-shear ram was bred by North Craven Dalesbred man John Dawson.

Top price of the day at 190 guineas fell to the second prize shearling ram from R Jackson & Son, of Horton-in-Ribblesdale, bought by W Huck, of Silsden. Godfrey Haygarth, of Wigglesworth, saw his third prize shearling ram sell for 160 guineas to John Fisher, of Rivington, Blackburn.

The show was staged on behalf of the Dalesbred Sheep Breeders’ Association, which again followed its usual policy of opting for youth when choosing the judges, with the 54 entries subjected to appraisal by 16-year-old Josh Ryder, of Harrogate, and James Wilson, 19, of Blubberhouses.
