Ludlow Primestock Christmas Show 2019 Sale Report

Ludlow Primestock Christmas Show 2019 Sale Report 

 

A fantastic entry for the 2019 Christmas Primestock at Ludlow Market.  All that took part should be very proud of what was achieved.  Particular note should be made to James May (vendor Champion Beast) and Hugh Morgan (vendor Champion Lambs).  Both vendors are regular supporters at Ludlow Market. 

A personal thank you also to the Judges, Mr G. Smith for the cattle and Mr S. Pugh for the sheep, along with our sponsors who helped support this event.

The Champion Lambs, Champion Beast and Reserve Champion Beast were purchased by WM & RC Newman, The Abattoir, Sherborne Road, Farnborough.

Reserve Champion Lambs were purchased by A.H. Griffiths, Leintwardine and 1st Prize Bull was purchased by Mr R. Pearson, Cliff Hollins Farm, Oakenshaw.

We also raised £600 via our raffle for our chosen charity of the year the Alzheimer’s Society.

We look forward to the 2020 Christmas Show and hope vendors, buyers and sponsors will continue to support this growing event.
