Dispersal of the Nicel Jersey Cattle
A superb show of Jersey and Crossbred cattle were witnessed
at Whitland Livestock Market on Friday 6th May 2016 and
the catalogued entry attracted many buyers and onlookers
to the dispersal of the Nicel Herd from Huw and Jenifer
Evans and daughters, Helen and Nicola.
The cows could not have looked any better for the day
of sale and all the hard work over the years and in the
weeks running up to the sale would be rewarded with the
excellent trade that came.
The cows were very milky, coming from a low input system,
which made them attractive buys to more than the Jersey
breeders in the mart. The best animals got consistently
up to and many over the 1000 guineas mark with top of
the day going for the cover girl, Nicel Iatola Delight
VG87. She was a 2nd calver, that had already
given over 7848kg and still milking, due with her third
calf in August and sold to Tregibby Jerseys for 1600gns.
The pick of the rest were -Nicel On Time Yellow, a March
calved heifer, giving 27.4kg daily and bred from 3 generations
of VG/Excellent cows that sold for 1280gns to the Tredinney
Herd in Penzance, Cornwall. Nicel Legal Dulcette VG86(2y)
was a fresh calved, 3rd generation VG/Excellent second
calver. She sold to the Gwarwenallt herd at 1250gns.
Other consignments on the day saw two freshly calved
heifers sell for £1050 and £1200 while dairy
cows from Davies, Corgam sold to £900. A special
entry of maiden, bulling and incalf heifers from Evans,
Parcynog also sold well with maiden heifers reaching
a top of £400 and incalf heifers to £860.
All in all an excellent day and JJ Morris would like
to wish the Evans Family at Nantyci all the best for
