February 21, 2013

On Wednesday 20thFebruary the Border & Lakeland dairy sale took place at Borderway, Carlisle. The show was sponsored by Pfizer and Cogent and was judged by Johnstone Rae from Bogghead Farm, Dumfries. The quality on offer was high with super cows and heifers all freshly calved and giving large volumes of milk from the UK’s leading breeders. Almost one hundred head was sold to a packed ring of buyers including some non registered cattle to almost average £2000.

Littlecoop Breeze 68 was the overall Champion she was consigned by S. Moor & Son, Littlecoop Hosue Farm, Hawthorn, County Durham.  She was sired by Ardross Sterling from a VG Samuelo dam. She oozed style and class with an amazing high and wide udder she sold for 2,700gns to Stuart Braid, Dumfries from the Murthat herd.

The top price of the day went to Wormanby Jeeves Princess consigned by H.M. & D. Hodgson, Wormanby Farm, Carlisle.  She was bred from two Excellent dams sired by Shottle and Formation respectively and placed second in the Junior heifer class.  She had a very nice combination of both dairy strength and dairyness with a fantastic udder she sold for 2,900gns to C & L Mair of Townhead Farm, Dumfries.

The Boclair herd sold five heifers in total with two selling for 2,500gns to N & SJ Sanderson of Burtholme Farm, Brampton.
