This was a British Blue-cross bull calf by Dinmore Gaultier, from Shaun, Peter and Paul Sowray, Bishop Thornton. The buyer was Lynne Vickers, Scarborough.

 

The Sowray family also had the reserve champion, a second prize British Blue bull calf by Fleuron which went to the same buyer at £620. They also sold two calves by Brennand General at £650 and £640 to the Mason family, Lincolnshire, who also paid £610 for their third prize Blue bull and £330 for their third prize Limousin bull. The Sowbray’s 10 calves, which they described as the best group of calves they have ever had averaged £508.

 

Richard Spence, Sutton-in- Craven, won the Limousin bull calf call topping the breed prices at £430. This was closely followed by the runner-up from Robert Metcalfe, Otley, at £410, with the same vendor also having the first prize Limousin heifer calf, which made £320.

 

In the native section, Lincoln Red calves from David Brown, Lofthouse, took first and second prizes in the bull class selling at £315 and £295.

 

Black and whites calves also met a good trade selling to £108 for the first prize winner from Alan and Susan Throup, Silsden Moor.

 

AVERAGES – Continental, £364.26; native, £200.60; black and white, £85.30.
