Christmas Prize Show & Sale of Prime Cattle & Lambs
Hopes Auction Co Ltd, Wigton held their Annual Christmas Prize Show and Sale of Prime Cattle & Lambs when there was an entry of 259 cattle and 72 lambs.
It was very kindly sponsored by R J Harrison, Butcher, Wigton, Barclays Bank, HSBC Bank and Lloyds Agricultural Machinery, Carlisle, J Stobart & Sons, Atlas Concrete Products.
A wonderful show of cattle were presented for the show and sale. Hopes would like to extend grateful thanks to all who supported what turned out to be a great day. Enormous credit must go to the vendors who really excelled in presenting a show of cattle many thought would be hard to rival anywhere in the country.
The cattle were judged by Jimmy Wood from Bowland Foods, Great Harwood, who awarded the Championship to an outstanding Home Bred Belgian Blue cross Steer from the Harrison family, The Old Vicarage, West Newton, which made 360p per kg.
Richard Harrison purchased the Champion Beast and this will be available in his shop from December 10.

Other local butchers were well to the fore with many purchases made .
