Today, 9th August saw CCM's Annual Young Handlers Prime Lamb Competition, where there were an exceptional 24 lambs forward from local 'Young Farmers'. Trade for all the show lambs was excellent and a big thankyou is extended to all the buyers for supporting the youngsters so well at the ringside and giving them a fine trade. After 16 months of COVID-19 restrictions, it was so refreshing to see the ringsides buzzing with enthusiasm, no restriction on spectators and above all our younger generation being able to attend and take part! Credit to Skipton Auction Mart for encouraging such a healthy entry of our 'young farmers' and giving them this opportunity.
Thankyou to todays judge: Angus Dean who certianly had his work cut out for him! He awarded the Championship Rosette jointly to Charlie Leach and Daniel Lund of Hebden Bridge. The lamb made £200 when selling to Brayton Farmshop in Selby. Other prices for show lambs see below.
