Linthorpe Albatross

Pick of the Belgian Blues was a good strong, blue and white May, 2005, home-bred bull from Yorkshire Dales farmer Ken Gamble, of Blackburn House Farm, Thorpe.

Linthorpe Albatross, sired by the Belgian-bred bull Captaine Du Et Chateau and out of a Lawns cow, remained in North Yorkshire when selling for 3,600 guineas to Ken Eddon, of Pickering, who also paid 1,500 guineas for a bull from Tim Metcalfe, of Clayton, Bradford.

Hallfield Hayup, a May, 2005, blue and white son of Serum d’Anloy, presented by Stuart Gill, of Dacre, Harrogate, returned to his roots when purchased for 1,750 guineas by Stephen and Malcolm Abbott, also of Dacre.

Of the females, a March, 2002, pedigree cow, Gregmaur Umbra, bred in Leicestershire by Mr and Mrs D Gregory, of Bosworth, with bull calf at foot, from Geoff Mellin, of Colne, was knocked down to a telephone bidder for 1,450 guineas.

Stuart Gill also exhibited a black and white maiden heifer, again by Serum d’Anloy, which was sold for 920 guineas.

The 390 store cattle forward also included 205 young feeding bulls, 19 steers, 54 heifers and 106 head of suckler cattle. Store cattle saw good trade, with feeding bulls a little easier, in line with prime bull prices.
