It was also the best ever price achieved by its owner and breeder, John Smith-Jackson, Haltwhistle. By his stock bull, Hightown Jacko, the heifer, now named Kitson Jewel, was knocked down to Anthony Kitson of B. and T. Kitson Butchers who has shops in Northallerton, Stockton on Tees and Hutton Rugby, who intends to show it at the major shows this summer.

 

Mr Smith-Jackson also took the overall reserve and champion British Blue titles with a heifer from the baby beef class which went on to sell for £2,600 to Geoff Tunstall, Brough.
