Sale Report

The Luckley Dispersal Sale
Tuesday 10th August 2004

Buyers from all parts of the UK gathered at Cottage Farm on Tuesday this week for the sale of Richard and David Sipthorp’s Luckley herd of pedigree Jersey cattle. A very strong demand for Channel Island cattle is clearly evident at the moment with several black & white breeders seeking to boost milk constituents, rather than fall foul of their milk buyers.

It was not long before the 4-figure barrier was broken. The WF/L&M Duncan Barber daughter Luckley Fluellen VG-86 (lot 212), who had twice yielded over 7,000kg, and was fresh calved with her 4th, made 1,250 guineas to Messrs S & S Murray (Farms) Ltd, from Wolverhampton.

The next lot into the ring Luckley Laburnum 2 VG-85 (lot 213), also by Duncan Barber, made 1,200 guineas to Robert Hogg, who purchased several Lots for his herd in Co. Fermanagh N.I.

Top price was 1,400 guineas paid by Messrs G.A.G. Evans & Son of the Trawscoed herd near Welshpool for Luckley Brookweed 3 GP-82 (lot 233), a young dry cow due in September, having the highest PIN in the sale at PIN +£78.

The same buyers also purchased her dam Luckley Brookweed 2 VG-85 (lot 219) for 1,300 gns. One of several outstanding daughters of the Danish sire, Fyn Lemvig, she had a top yield of 7,761kg 5.3 (4.1) and sold dry & in calf for October to Jace.

The 5 Lemvig cows averaged £928 and included Luckley Laburnum 4 VG-87 (lot 225) sold for 1,300 guineas to Messrs Evans. Her calf at foot by Ferreira Mannix Jaguar made the top price for a calf at 580 guineas, with the 14 ‘A’ lots averaging £386.

Another leading purchaser on the day was Mr RA Dallyn from Barnstaple.

41 cows & calved heifers avgd. £713
12 served heifers avgd. £608
2 maiden heifers avgd. £525

55 lots avgd. £684
