Middleton Christmas Show and Sale of Store Cattle

3rd December 2019

On Tuesday 3rd December Harrison & Hetherington Ltd held their Annual Christmas Prize Show & Sale of Store Cattle & Suckled Calves within Middleton In Teesdale Mart.

The Christmas show was kindly sponsored by Farmhouse Kitchen and the Tithebarn.

The judging was left in the capable hands of Mr Gordon Meek, who gave the Overall Championship and the Directors Trophy to Messrs JC & J White, Rigg Farm for an outstanding Limousin bullock, which sold to £1030.

The Reserve Champion rosette was awarded to a cracking heifer also from Messrs White. This black heifer later went on to sell for £930.
