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.
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.
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.
51 In Milk Heifers £1203
