Bettiscombe Back with a Bang at Sedgemoor Auction Centre September Collective Sale

September 2022

An exceptional entry of quality milk combined with a commercial dispersal from Ipswich drew the milk trade of the year to date at the Sedgemoor Collective September Sale with 23 over £2500.  Roland & Simon Bugler having increased their herd numbers were back with surplus stock selling 19 fresh calved cows and heifers from their Bettiscombe Herd to average £2650.  They topped the day with their calved heifer Duke Nifty giving 45kgs who sold for £3255, at £3130 was another calved heifer from the Enid family.  Their calved cows sold to £2940 for the 2nd lactation Dynamo Lovely and £2835 for the 3rd lactation Hurricane Pinkie.

The continuation of the Dinnaton Dispersal produced 10 heifers to average £2562 topping at £2887.50 for Tamper Flowrider Noreen with Currency Pepper Babette & Kimball Detective Cordelia both at £2835.

The continued dispersal of the commercial cows and heifers for PR & SJ Richards of Ipswich generated an excellent trade for the quality cows on offer with the older heavy milking cows in very strong demand.  The fresh 2nd lactation cow by De-Su Topsey ET topped their sale at £2730 with 15 selling for over 2000gns with 6th lactation cows at 1750gns and calved heifers at £2499.
