The breed repeated its success at the Spring pedigree beef fixture by once more taking championship and reserve championship honours this time around.

The supreme title winner was an 18-month-old Limousin bull, Kirkview Agentooseven, exhibited by William Salisbury, of W Salisbury & Son, Church View Farm, Treales, near Preston.

It sold for 1,280 guineas to Alan Wheelwright, of Halifax. Nouvelle Prospect, sire of the champion, is doing well in the Shropshire-based Wilodge herd.

The reserve champion, a 20-month-old Limousin bull, Aprilton Andy Pandy, from Eileen Wilson, of White Hills, Scorton, Richmond, made 1,100gns when purchased by G Pickersgill & Son, of Hawkworth, Guiseley. The sire is Ronick Member.

Show judge was Peter Goldsborough, of Northallerton, himself a past pedigree beef cattle championship winner at Skipton. “The victor was stylish, had a good carcass and will breed some nice calves,” he noted.

A production sale of pedigree Saler cattle, predominantly females, was also staged on behalf of Thomas Pye, of Rigel Pedigree, Levens Farm, Middleton-on-Leven, Yarm.
