Dinnaton dominated the top prices for the fresh calved cows which sold to 1900gns for their 2nd calver “Brad Julian Total Eclipse (GP84)” with members of the “Foxmask” and “Flute” families at 1700gns.
Incalf heifers continued to be a good trade with heifers due in September from J & J Bown selling to 1460gns for “Steventon Cosmeth Katrinea” and commercial organic heifers due July from Coombe Farming at 1400gns x 2.
Of the 3 bulls sold it was LED Rockett’s British Friesian “Greenway Victor (BFV85)” which topped the market at 2020gns.
Off lying cows met a much more difficult trade with autumn/winter calving British Friesian cows from BHG Farm Partnership selling to 950gns. The youngstock trade proved to be very selective with bulling heifers at 830gns x 2 for J & J Bown “Steventon” herd and July 2018 born “Wintersell Milo” daughter from the same herd at 700gns.
Y Farm Partnership’s continued youngstock dispersal produced young heifer calves on milk to 320gns x 9 for daughters of “Wiltor Dreamer” and “Glamour Achieve” ET.
