Beef Shorthorn Cattle Society Sale at Skipton

Upsall Farm took a selection of 12 heifers between 1-2 years old to the breed society’s annual Skipton Sale, they were sired by either King David of Upsall, Grenadier of Upsall or Firefox of Upsall working bulls. 

Due to COVID and the lack of sales in 2020, we were unsure whether the sale would go ahead or if it would be an online auction.  Thankfully the sale went ahead and all the heifers sold, averaging over £2000 each. 

The best heifer of the day for the farm went for 3,900 gns, this was Nonpareil X1357 of Upsall TI +30, SRI +30, a two year old dark roan calf by Grenadier of Upsall, sold to Dawn Lindsay of Carnwath, Lanarkshire. 

Gem X1438 of Upsall TI +29, SRI +33, a 17 month old roan maiden by King David of Upsall sold to M Robinson, Halifax, West Yorkshire. 

Many thanks to all the customers who bid and made stock enquiries, we wish you the best of luck with your new purchases.
