Skipton Mart Championship Brace for Fawcetts

Local farmers Ken Fawcett & Sons were again in championship-winning form at the store cattle with show potential fixture at Skipton Auction Mart. (Wed, April 9).

Skipton store cattle with show potential champion

British Blue-cross heifer

A ten-month old British Blue-cross white-faced heifer from the Fawcetts, of Dale Head Farm, Barden, landed the spoils, just two weeks after the family had sent out the title winner – another British Blue-cross ten-week-old – at Skipton’s annual Spring show and sale of young feeding bulls.

Both their home-bred champions are by the BB Society-registered Brookfield Vaughan, bought from Thirsk-based Stephen Potter – and now in its third year as a sire on the Fawcett suckler herd.

Exhibited by John Fawcett, the April victor sold for £910 to Jeff Burrow, of Hanlith, Kirkby Malham.

The reserve champion, a Limousin bullock from Chris Akrigg, of Cray, went on to make the day’s top price of £935 when acquired by Matt Townsend, of Laneshawbridge, who also bought a British Blue heifer from the Fawcett family for £900.

Show judge was beef farmer David Bailey, of Braighland Farm, Keighley.
