Scotland Hill Farm Jersey Heifer Dispersal

Friday 12th July 2013

Exeter Livestock Centre, Devon

Jersey Trade on Fire!

Exeter Livestock Centre is fast becoming the most attractive centre in the country for selling Jerseys and we held the third Jersey sale at Exeter this year and dispersed the entire herd of Pedigree Danish In Milk Heifers on behalf of Jim Parker of Cardigan, Wales.

Unfortunately due to ill health Jim was forced to sell his herd and made the decision to send them to Exeter and Jim was rewarded with a sensational trade from start to finish.

The heifers which were imported from Denmark last Decmber had all calved in February, March and April and had not yet been served.

Top of the day was 1600gns for a super heifer “Keltic Danish KT Jante Christy” by Danish DJ Jante out of a 9000Kgs grand dam.

Other heifers sold to 1450gns for “Keltic Danish kt Hobro Ceri” by VJ Hobro, she calved in April and sold to Ian Crouch of Dorset who purchased 14 for his Cracker herd in Dorset.

March calved heifers sold to 1320gns for a heifer by VJ Roll, she joins one of 6 purchased by Messrs Bruna for their Holstein Herd in Cornwall.

Two other March calved heifers by DJ Izzy & DJ Give both sold at 1300gns. February calved heifers sold to £1150 twice for heifers by VJ Roll & VJ Rock, both purchased by volume buyer Tony Dallyn who purchased 19 for his herd in North Devon.

15 buyers competed hard for good heifers and 42 heifers sold over £1000. There were a number of three or light quartered cows which sold very well between 600-900gns.

Jersey Averages:
51 In Milk Heifers £1203
24 Light or 3 ¼’d £663
