On 17th October 2012, a Lincoln Red sired steer topped Newark Livestock Market, grossing £1768. The steer's dam, a Limousin x Lincoln Red cow, had been sold in calf to Beverley Kudos and calved in February 2011. He was put on ad lib barley later that winter and was being aimed towards a Christmas Show in 2012, but had grown and done so well that his owner, Clive Goulsbra, decided he would be too big to keep another 6 weeks.
