Butcher offers a prize-winning meal this Christmas

A local butcher has pledged to buy the best meat in the business for customers this Christmas.

S Collins and Sons, based in Muirhead, has bought the ‘Best in Show’ prizewinner at the Lanark Cattle Christmas Show, which is held every December.

The cattle in the competition were judged by a panel of professionals, who chose the animal to give the ultimate accolade to.

Business owner Stewart Collins, who has won 44 industry awards, will now be offering cuts of the prize-winning meat to his customers.

He said: “The shop always has something special on offer throughout the year, but we wanted to make our Christmas fare truly special.

“It’s not every day you get to eat award-winning beef.”
