Champion beef coup for Turnbulls Butchers
Turnbull & Sons Butchers in Alnwick will be serving up championship-winning prime beef to its customers this Christmas.
Turnbulls’ chief buyer, butcher Malcolm Riddell, was invited to judge the beef cattle classes at Acklington Auction Mart’s annual Christmas primestock show and sale and transferred his interest to the ringside when purchasing his chosen champion for the Market Street shop.
He paid the show-topping price of 259.5p/kg, or £1,588, for the title winner, a 612kg Limousin-cross heifer shown by I Renton and Son, of High Highlaws.
For good measure, Turnbull's Butchers also paid 216p/kg for the reserve champion Limousin-cross steer from South Rennington.
The region’s leading butchers again attended the annual highlight, as they sought to buy the best local prime meat for their customers’ festive tables.
Turnbulls’ Mark Turnbull said: “We pride ourselves on serving the finest quality Northumbrian beef from local farmers. This not only ensures full field-to-table traceability, but it also keeps food miles to a minimum, which is vital when considering the welfare of the animals.
“We are now fully maturing the beef to maximise both texture and taste, ensuring the meat is spot on for the coming festive season. The Christmas roasts, in particular, should prove memorable.”
R Turnbull & Sons is a long-standing member of the national Butchers Q Guild, which represents many of the country’s leading independent meat retailers.
