Special Multibreed Show & Sale
of Dairy Cattle
Thursday 28th June 2012
Kivells Multi Breed Show & Sale at Hallworthy Stockyard,
Cornwall saw a packed ring of buyers and the Jerseys
were in the limelight of an exceptional trade!
In the Jersey section we saw a flying trade with a cracking
consignment of freshly calved cows & heifers from
Messrs B and J Ravenhill-White, Umberleigh topping at £1750
for a pedigree second calver “Whitenhill Nutcrackers
Carnation” by Whitenhill Excitations Knutcracker,
the hammer finally fell after some spirited bidding to
a breeder in Wales. Her baby heifer calf by a New Zealand
bull Joskin sold extremely well to £480 to the
Grigg family from Bideford whose daughter Joanna will
show later in the year.
A fourth calver from the same
vendor by Rock Ella Remake sold extremely well at £1420.
Messrs Ravenhill-White’s consignment averaged £1433.
Oliver Hicks of Holsworthy sold two sweet heifers freshly
calved and both by Potterswalls bulls with a Belles Pride
daughter selling at £1100 and Lord June daughter
A very strong trade from start to finish
and many more could have been sold to advantage with
several buyers going home empty handed. Certainly with
the demand for Jerseys like this there is no place better
than the ring to market your cattle!
