Hopes Auction Christmas Primestock Show and Sale

On Saturday 2 December Michael Peile and I were delighted to attend the Christmas Primestock Show and Sale at Hopes Auction, Wigton.

There was a great turnout and as ever some fantastic stock on show throughout the day, with an outstanding entry of prime cattle that were a credit to the exhibitors.  Fortunately we weren’t judging, we left that to the experts of Clare Cropper and John Mellin who had the immensely difficult task of sorting the placing’s.

After some deliberation they eventually chose the Limousin Heifer from Messrs Alan Barnett, Brinns Farm, Shap as 2017 Champion.

The Reserve Champion which was proudly sponsored by David Allen Agriculture was presented to Ian and Nathan Grainger, Kiln Close, Glasson with their home bred Bazadaise cross Heifer.

With Christmas creeping upon us all the event certainly helped us get into the festive spirit and gave us a great opportunity to catch up with so many of our clients and friends around the ring.

Thank you to Hopes for hosting yet another fabulous show and sale.  We look forward to supporting further events throughout 2018.
