Lancaster, with a pair of January-born Beltex-cross-Charollais
twin lambs that weighed in at 36 kilos.
They sold for the show-topping price of £102 each to show
judge Ross Greenwood, who is selling them over the Easter period
at his farm shop at Carleton, near Skipton.
The second prize pen of 41-kilo Texel-Suffolk-cross lambs from
Mark Evans, Steeton, made £91 apiece when bought by Andrew
Atkinson, of Harrogate, who also purchased the third and fourth
prize pens from Robert Towers and Martin Preston, Bingley, for £70
and £68 a head respectively.
