His winner in the Farmers Guardian-supported show, was an Aberdeen-Angus heifer weighing 643kg, which went on to make 400p/kg (£2,572) to Steven Woolley of Woolley Bros, Sheffield.

 

Reserve went to Phil and Sharon Sellers, Lincolnshire, who sold their 572kg British Blue steer at 315p (£1801.80) to wholesale butchers Miranda and Richard Brown, Lincoln, who judged the show.

 

Frank Page also had the reserve champion heifer, a 545kg Limousin which sold at 390p/kg (£2,125.50), helping him gross most points in the cattle section.

 

Reserve steer was a British Blue weighing 712kg from G.J. Kent. It sold for £1,594.88.

 

Taking both the championship and reserve in the butchers’ classes was Ian Wildgoose and Family, Bolsover, Chesterfield. Their champion was a red Limousin heifer which weighed 678kg and made 280p/kg (£1,898.40). The reserve, also a Limousin heifer, weighed 618kg and made 290p/kg (£1,792.20) – both going to Miranda Brown on behalf of Phil Heald Butchers, Retford.

 

In the sheep section, judged by Matthew Morris of Joseph Morris Butchers, Leicestershire, the winners were a pair of 44kg Beltex from David and Linda Wadland. They sold at £140 per head (318p/kg) to the judge.

 

The reserve champions from Andrew Bishop were also Beltex, weighing 49kg. They sold to Deakins Butchers at £110 (224p/kg).

 

A quality show of butchers’ pigs was topped by Malcolm Workman, whose pair of 94kg gilts sold to judge Thomas Deakin at 100p/kg (£188). David and Gill Hirst took reserve with gilts weighing 88kg and selling at 150p/kg (£132/head), also to the judge.
