Jerseys Fly to 1400gns!
The dispersal of the entire Autumn Calving portion of
the “Namaste” herd of 68 Pedigree Jerseys
on behalf of Jon & Clea Stanley of Shaftesbury on
Friday 16th December 2016 attracted buyers form as far
as Carmarthen, Pembrokeshire, Hereford, Bristol and all
over the South West.
Trade was on fire with a volume buyer taking home 47
head and many buyers competed hard to purchase and some
went home empty handed!
Top of the day was 1400gns (£1470) for “Namaste
Governor Cash” a second calver by Griffens Governor,
others sold to 1350gns (£1417) for a third calver “Namaste
Lix Blackberry” by Danish DJ Lix, 1320gns for a
second calver by Joskin and 1220gns for a third calver
by WF Brook Bomber. A sixth calver “Sunnydawn Coalition
Lady” by Family Hill CIR Coalition sold exceptionally
well at £1120! Several more sold between 1000-1200gns
and even the older cows found a considerably stronger
trade than expected. Five heifer calves sired by DJ Husky
and Namaste Legacy Ceres George sold well to 280gns.
50 Pedigree Jersey Cows & Heifers £905
13 Old or High Cell Count Cows £385
