Auctioneers Greenslade Taylor Hunt were delighted to be back on farm for the first time in two years to disperse the commercial 10,336 kgs dairy herd for JE & SE Jeanes & Son at Hamwood Farm, Stalbridge, Dorset.

The sale drew a large Welsh contingent which together with strong local support produced an excellent trade for the fresh milk to top at 2400gns for the July second calver by “Da-So-Burn Altaburner”, her heifer calf by “Delaberge Pepper” sold for 400gns. A July third calver by the same bull sold for 2350gns, with August second calvers at 2300gns for the red and white “Oakworthy Peppermints Attempt Esk Red”.
 
The June calved heifers topped at 2250gms with daughters of “Woodmarsh Topshot” at 2150gns x2. Incalf heifers calving at two years in December and January sold to 1400gns for the blue roan heifer by “Luster P”.
