Hubberholme Hucks on High at Skipton Store Cattle Show

An 11-month-old British Blue-cross heifer born and raised in the Yorkshire Dales was the pick of a quality crop of promising youngsters when taking championship honours for breeders J & G Huck, of Church Farm, Hubberholme, at the Spring store cattle with show potential fixture at Skipton Auction Mart. (Wed, April 14).

The home-bred victor is among the first crop of show progeny from the Huck’s stock bull Luke Royal Admiral, acquired two years ago from Mel and Diane Lucas, of County Antrim in Northern Ireland.

Out of a Limousin cow, the title winner, exhibited by James Huck, achieved joint top price in show at £1,100 when knocked down to East Coast show woman Mrs Hannah Jeffery, of Rigg Farm, Broxa, Scarborough, who has plans to enter her latest acquisition at agricultural shows in the region.

Mrs Jeffrey also paid £1,060 for the first prize Limousin-cross heifer from Ian Townson, of High Brake House, Clitheroe.

Mr Townson was also responsible for the first prize Limousin-cross bullock and reserve show champion, a 12-months-old juvenile that caught the eye of show judge Jeff Burrow, of Kirkby Malham, both in the show ring and at the ringside. He acquired the runner-up for the second joint top price of £1,100, one of multiple acquisitions Mr Burrow made at the show.

Another four figure achiever at £1,000 was the second prize Limousin-cross heifer from Joe and Trevor Stoney, Pateley Bridge, which joined Skipton regular Stephen Maskill, Hebden Bridge.

The fixture was sponsored by Townson Fuels, of Chatburn, Clitheroe, represented by sales manager Mike Redfern.
