THE 22nd ANNUAL NATIONAL GOLD TOP SHOW AND SALE
WEDNESDAY 25th AUGUST 2004
BORDERWAY MART, ROSEHILL, CARLISLE

Danish Du Albatross Bittersweet led by Vicky Shedding

The Gold Top sale at Borderway Mart saw an excellent entry of Pedigree Jersey cattle at this annual collective event. Also encouraging was the big crowd of pedigree and commercial buyers which ensured a very respectable trade and a virtual 100% sell out.

Seven animals made over 1,000 gns to a top of 2,720 gns for Danish Du Albatross Bittersweet consigned by John & Carol McIlwraith, Balig Farm, Ayr. This outstanding young cow in her second lactation has already given 6,904kgs 4.96% 3.96% in 267 days. Sired by Q Albatros and back in calf to Rock Ella Paramount, she was purchased by Mrs JM Waring, Field House Farm, Beverley, E Yorks.

The second top price was the Reserve Champion, Priestcar Renake Bambi, successfully shown by Mr BR & Miss RL Jarvis, priestcar Lodge, Marton-Cum-Grafton, North Yorshire. Paying 1,700gns for this sweet heifer was Clandeboye Estate, Clandeboye, Bangor, Co Down, N Ireland.

Champion - John Heath, Judith Huntington (Barclays Bank) & Judge Adrain
