The English 'Gold Top' Sale

Friday 12th April 2013

Anniversary Sale Strikes Gold with Jerseys to £2100

Kivells held the English Gold Top Sale of 50 Pedigree Jerseys at Exeter Livestock Centre, Devon within their monthly dairy sale which marked a special twelve month anniversary of being at Exeter.

The ring was set the ring alight when the jerseys came through and trade was literally on fire with buyers from Cheshire, Bristol, Somerset and all over Devon and Cornwall. Top of the day was £2100 for a cracking second calver “Morebridge Jevons Bond GP82” by Forest Glen Meccas Jevon from Messrs MS Ashton of Torrington who also sold a third calver “Morebridge Iatolas Bella VG86” by SC Gold Dust Paramount Iatola at £2000, both these grand cows sold to Sally & Lucy Parfitt of Somerset.

The same vendors sold a cracking crossbred second calver by Whitenhill Futuritys Beechnut out of an Ayrshire cross cow and she saw spirited bidding and sold at £1800 to David Blanch of Bristol to join his Pedigree Holstein herd. The same buyer also purchased a lovely third calver by Grammer Hallmark Mcgwire at £1650 and the best of the fresh heifers by Will Do Mor Russell at £1550. Phillip and Jane Ashton must be congratulated on a wonderful consignment of 13 cows which averaged a phenomenal £1532!

Oliver Neagle travelled down from Hampshire with a milky consignment and sold a second calver “Hiltonbury Ringsmaster Lilac ET” a daughter of Family Hill Ringmaster out of an EX93 cow, she sold to well at £1550 to Martin Williams of Helston for his newly established herd. The same vendor also sold a Ringmaster heifer out of an EX90 cow at £1450.

The summer calvers met a much better than expected trade and met strong demand with the best heifer selling to £1500 for “Richtop DJMay Donny” by DJ May due her second in June to Starbuck from The Taylor family of Ilfracombe. The Taylor’s also sold summer calving In Calf heifers well to £1400 for a daughter of Iatola and others to £1220 for a SR View Flight daughter which was purchased by Brian and William Patten of Nantwhich, Cheshire.

Served heifers met a very strong trade with a super show heifer from Arthur Walters of Launceston by Iatola which was due in September and she sold exceptionally well at £1150.

We were delighted to be able to offer six very well bred youngstock from Richard & Heather Gibson of Tiverton for their Charity “Aid For Samburu”. Following Richard’s experience with his visit to Samburu to take part in a documentary on “The toughest place to be a farmer”, Richard & Heather set up a charity to raise money to buy a Bore Hole and send it across. Their consignment of heifers sold exceptionally well to £1100 which was achieved three times and all were Twinkle family members originating from Graham Wallace’s Grahmar herd and first to do it was “Heatherburn Belles Twinkle” by Potterswalls Belles Pride and she sold to James Warren to join his Cardinney herd in Cornwall. Next was a Pine Haven Senior daughter with 4 gens of VG or EX behind her and she sold to Simon Bray of Barnstaple for his Southley herd. The third was a Governor daughter who was only just 14 months old and she sold to Sally & Lucy Parfitt. The same vendors sold January born calves by Governor to £480 and their consignment grossed £5060 all for CHARITY!

The Taylor’s sold 4 heifer calves from their Richtop herd by Amity & Zuma very well at £370 apiece to Mark Reed of Umberleigh to join his Holstein Herd. 3 non-pedigree Yearling Heifers by Amity sold at £400 apiece from Mark Evans of Honiton.

A fantastic day for the Jersey Breed!!
