Dispersal of the Nicel Jersey Cattle Herd

Report

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.

Nicel

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 the future.
