A ten-month-old home-bred Belgian Blue-cross bull from local farmers Ken Fawcett & Sons, of Dale Head Farm, Barden, was awarded the championship at the annual show and sale of young feeding bulls at Skipton Auction Mart.

Belgian Blue Bull

Exhibited by John Fawcett, the youngster is by the Belgian Blue Society-registered Brookfield Vaughan, bought from Stephen Potter, of Thirsk, and now in its second year as a sire on the Fawcett suckler herd.

Out of a Belgian Blue-cross cow, the title winner achieved top price of the 252 young feeding bulls sold on the day when purchased for £800 by Stephen Swales, of York.

The reserve champion from T & MM Sedgewick, of Kirkby Lonsdale, sold locally for £720 to JA & JM Wade, of Cononley.

The Yorkshire Charolais Club sponsored a class for breed-sired young bulls, which resulted in a clean sweep of prizes for Yorkshire Dales farmers JA & AJ Coates, of Braida Garth.

Judges were brothers Barry and Bill Wagstaff, of Sutton-on-the-Forest, York.
