Arthington farm proves top of game
11:00am Sunday 15th September 2013 in News
An Arthington farm is celebrating further success at market.
The Lawson family, who manage a Newbirks pedigree Holstein herd of cows at Mill Farm, took the third prize for a newly-calven heifer at the early September Craven Dairy Auction.
The Lawsons’ animal sold for £2,150 to Stephen Jeanes, of Glusburn.
The Lawsons, who have sent out many Craven Dairy Auction champions at Skipton recently, also presented the first prize newly calven cow, a second calver by a Picston Shottle son. Giving 38 litres, she sold for £2,050 to Mark Goodall, of Tong, Bradford.
The family also sold two other newly calven cow entries, for £2,000, to Paul Bolland.
