Liddimore Jersey Herd Dispersal
Friday 13th May 2016
demand at Exeter!
Kivells dispersed the Liddimore herd of 130 Pedigree
Jerseys at Exeter Livestock Centre on behalf of Messrs
HR & BM White & Sons of Watchet, Minehead which
attracted great interest and saw a cracking trade for
the cows from start to finish.
Top of the sale was 1450gns
for a fourth calver “Liddimore Abe Perfume”
by Ahlem Lemvig Abe, she sold due in August to Fastrack.
Close behind at 1400gns was “Liddimore Broiler
Oyster” a heifer by Danish DJ Broiler due her second
in October. Also at 1400gns was “Liddimore Abe
Oyster” a third calver by Abe also due in October.
A much admired second calver “Liddimore Appeals
Partridge VG85” by Riverside Maximum Appeal sold
due in December at 1300gns. Dry cows topped at 950gns
for a heifer by Lagangreen Roy Boy due her second in
In total 34 cows sold in excess of £1000
and even the older cows and three quartered cows sold
far better than expected and there was as much demand
for the second quality as the first!
The In Calf Heifers
were the hardest trade of the day and topped at 700gns
for a Broiler daughter due in August. The yearling heifers
sold to a reasonable trade and topped at 420gns for Topeka
