Northern Limousin breeders are going to showing their finest pure anc crossbred youngsters at Skipton Market on May 9, giving everyone a chance to assess their chances ahead of the main show season.

With £2300 in prize money up for grabs the event looks sure to draw in some top quality entries of young cattle. Classes are for pedigree Limousin heifers and bulls born in 2006 and crossbred Limousin sired steers and heifers.

Judge for the show will be William Smith of Millbrook Limousins, Ireland, one of the best known Limousin breeders in Eire.

On the same day up to 1500 pedigree and crossbred Limmys will be penned for the annual Craven Limousin Day which will feature the annual show and sale of pedigree Limousin breeding cattle.
