RED HOT TRADE AT SUMMER SIZZLER SALE OF COLOURED BREEDS AT BEESTON

JERSEYS TO 1400gns

Thursday 10th August 2006

A great entry of over 150 Ayrshires, Jerseys, Guernseys, Shorthorns and one or two other crossbreds for the Wright Manley Summer Sizzler Show & Sale of coloured breeds sponsored by the Farmers Guardian. Andrew Gough of W.H. Slater Farms of Shifnal, Shropshire acted as judge.

There was a big crowd at the sale from start to finish and overall the trade was very pleasing with most commodities selling on a fast trade, the exception being a few cows which had calved three or four months; these were the only animal which were harder to sell, but nevertheless did sell at satisfactory rates.

Jerseys were the trade of the day especially for the milkers and in-calf heifers; they sold to a top of 1400 gns with a further two breaking the four figure barrier. All of these were purchased by Gareth Williams who acquired a total of 24 head for his herd at Goodwick, Pembrokeshire. His two leading purchases were for in-calf heifers consigned by J.Badham of Rugeley, Staffordshire but both were for animals bred in Mark Smith’s noted Woodbine Herd.

The first, the two year old Woodbine Navigator’s Gingerberry by Ferreira American Navigator is due in October to Schultz Brook Hallmark and the second which realised 1200 gns is a daughter of Lester Sambo and not due until January to a Limousin.

The only other animal to break the four figure barrier selling at 1000 gns. was an uncatalogued and unregistered fresh heifer consigned Graham Hollinshead of Haughton, Stafford.

Maiden heifers were a very selective trade but with generally a good clearance, the highlights being a yearling Jersey from Richard Saxby of Skipton selling for 750 gns. to Gareth Morgan.

AVERAGES:
15 cows and milking heifers £830.20;
20 served heifers £759.68;
20 maiden heifers £392.18
