Border & Lakeland Club Show and Sale
DATE: March 12, 2014
LOCATION: Borderway, Carlisle
JUDGE: Andrew Wilson

The Border & Lakeland Holstein Club hosted their monthly Pedigree Dairy Day Sale at Borderway, Carlisle. The catalogue was full of top quality pedigrees many with six or more generations of Excellent or Very Good dams and more importantly cows and heifers that justified their heritage. It was certainly a buyer’s market with a number of superior animals selling well below their true value and with the beautiful spring weather caressing the countryside some buyers were busy in the fields.
