Wellington Young-Stock Dispersal Sale

JerseyOn Wednesday 21st August 2013 following the Lakes Counties Jersey Club Show & Sale at Borderway, Carlisle the Wellington herd owned by J&M Stamper, Wellington Farm, Cockermouth will disperse their entire herd of pedigree young stock totalling almost eighty head.

The Wellington herd was established in 2002 after Leigh & Hodgson Stamper decided to restock with an importation of pedigree heifers from Denmark after the devastation of FMD. A few years later the family diversified into the ice cream business and also opened The Old Stackyard Tearoom on the farm. Today their ice-cream is one the North of Englands culinary delights and the Tearoom continues to grow in popularity. With more and more time being spent in the ice-cream factor and tea room the family decided to sell their milking herd earlier this spring.

This special sale of young-stock is a fine example of the best attributes of the Jersey breed. The heifers are well grown and display tremendous width of chest and rump. The legs and feet on the heifers are especially impressive; there is no question that they have the ability to be high producing cows in the future.

Starting of the dispersal is 18 in-calf heifers, they display wonderful udder promise and are sired by Schultz Dudley Restore, Cal-Mart Jace Simba and Tollenaars Impuls Legal. A number of these heifers are in calf to Danish Dj Broiler(Sexed Semen) & Danish Dj Zuma (Sexed Semen) the rest are due to Vindication & Potterswalls Glams Comerica.

There is 44 heifers born in 2012 of whom the older portion will be ready to breed, they are sired by Fairway Klipper, Gabys Ballard, Lyon Impuls Amity, Danish Dj Zuma, Gabys Iatola Brahms & Riverside Maximum Appeal. The youngest heifers have the same uniformity as the in-calf heifers moving with excellent locomotion with deep and wide frames.

The milking herd was averaging 5500kgs 5.83% 4.07% before it was sold in the spring. They were vaccinated for IBR, BVD & Lepto and the farm is in a four year TB testing area. A Johness test had been carried out quarterly for the past four years and all the dams of the heifers selling have tested negative.

Jersey sales of this quality are rare and this is a special opportunity for breeders and milk producers on dedicated Jersey milk contracts to purchase young animals with excellent futures. The Stamper family have developed a wonderful Jersey animal, the cows were very efficient forage converters, and they were robust, long-lasting, healthy and gave large volumes of high quality milk, their daughters selling are equally as good. In simple terms they tick all the boxes, they fulfil all the demands required from any modern dairy farm.
