Jersey Trade "On Fire" at Exeter!

The Golden Opportunity Sale of Pedigree Jerseys & Guernseys at Exeter Livestock Centre on Friday 10th November 2017 met a packed ring and an electric trade!

I would like to thank the vendors that continue to support our sales here at Exeter with exceptional quality Jerseys and they were rewarded with a trade than can only be described as “on fire”!

Top of the day was 2050gns for the much admired heifer from Bruce, Jenny & Jess Ravenhill-White of Umberleigh with “Whitenhill Aussiegolds Sunset” by Broadlin Aussiegold out of three generations of VG or EX Dams, she sold having calved in August to Oliver Bolitho of Truro. Her heifer calf by a homebred sire Whitenhill Vanahlems Pecan sold exceptionally well at 520gns to Pete & Louise Phillips for their Justafew herd in Cornwall. The Ravenhill-White’s had an exceptional team and sold others to 1950gns for “Whitenhill Vanahlems Winze” by Panoo Abe Vanahlem, She sold to Alex & Claire Wilson-North for their Foxhole herd in North Devon who also secured a smart second calver by Bluegrass Lord Actionman at 1920gns. Other heifers from Whitenhill sold to 1750gns twice and 1720gns for the first cow in the ring, a third calver by Greenmile Maun Impish which sold to Peter Bullock of Crediton who has established a new herd. Her heifer calf by Potterswall Minister sold at 480gns to Adam Smith. The Whitenhill Consignment of 11 In Milk Cows & Heifers averaged an incredible £1805!

A cracking consignment from Daffyd & Helen Cox’s Glanmor herd in Carmarthenshire met strong demand and proved that the long journey to Exeter was well worth it with their best heifer selling to 1900gns for “Glanmor Fisher Aries” by a homebred sire Glanmor Tyler Mr Fisher, she sold to Pete Bullock. Others sold to 1800gns twice for heifers by Vanahlem & Gemini which both sold to Maurice Grose & Family of Cornwall and a second calver “Glanmor Legacy Starburst” by Hollylane Lilibets Legacy sold well at 1700gns to Tristan Hocking of Penzance. The Glanmor consignment of 5 averaged an incredible £1858!

Ian & Graham White of Minehead sold a consignment following their dispersal last year which saw a fifth calver “Liddimore On Time Liberty VG87” by Lencrest On Time sell exceptionally well at 1600gns. Heifers from the same home by Heartland Merchant Topeka sold at 1500gns. Jim Elworthy of Cullompton sold two super milky heifers by Lagangreen Roy Boy at 1820gns & 1780gns to David Plowman of Wiltshire.

In Calf Heifers topped at 2000gns for “Whitenhill Miles Delicious” by Three Valley Country Miles out of an EX91 Dam from Bruce, Jenny & Jess Ravenhill and she sold to Martin Williams of Helston for his Trenithon herd. Others from Whitenhill sold to 1300gns twice.

What an exceptional day for the Jersey Breed!
