Nationwide Interest for the long established Wotton Herd.

Royal Farms, Windsor make top call of 1,750gns for Wotton Sultan Champion Yolande a November calved heifer by Centurian Sultan and daughter of Wotton Decadences Yolande - Part of the Wotton Show Team.

Wotton Decadences Yolande being Surrey Show Supreme Dairy Champion in 2006 - Dam of Sultan - sold earlier on in the sale - and achieved second top price at 1700 gns also to Royal Farms she herself in her fourth lactation having calved on the 23rd March and producing 36 kilos daily.

A particular feature of the sale were the cows bred by Centurian Sultan who both took the eye and the price with fifteen selling to average £1,012.

A Wotton Decadences daughter lead the prices in the served heifer run, this time by the homebred bull Wotton Topshot at 820gns.

Other averages achieved as follows:-
Heifers in their first lactation to 1750gns and average £902
Cows in their second lactation to 1670gns and average £831
Cows in their third lactation to 1070gns and average £670

Cows in their fifth lactation 1170gns and average £604
giving an overall for cows in first to fifth lactation of £751.

Fourteen cows sold in the four figure price range. Wales and West Country came to the south east looking for well bred Jersey youngstock making the demand quite exceptional, many heifers sold behind their dams changing hands between 550 & 650gns and achieving an overall average of just under £500 from nine weeks to eight months.

Amongst the older unserved heifers was Wotton Sultan Tilt just fourteen months - a Mulberry coloured heifer again by Centurion Sultan being secured by Robert Mann, late of Fletching the Woolpack herd but now of Ilminster, Somerset, at the figure 1050gns.

Good to report several potential customers for the two homebred young bulls - Wotton Jumbo and Wotton Bumblebee achieving a very creditable price of 1300gns and 1150gns respectively.

A lot or two worthy of comment the Fullwood 8200l tank £6,600 the Hanco feed bin £1850, JCB 525-58 telehandler plus grab £5,350 and Major slurry tank £3,600.
