Tuesday 5th December was the day that AL & GD Davies t/a Trefwtial Fawr Cyf moved and dispersed the milking and incalf heifer portion of their “Dandi” herd to Sedgemoor Auction Centre from Cardigan, West Wales.

The journey was rewarded with no less than 50 successful purchasers from across the South of England and Wales witnessing a top price of 2300gns for the fresh VG85 second calver “Dandi Allemar Phyllis”. Fresh milk was very much in demand with the September calved heifer “Dandi Seaver Trudy VG86-2yr” selling for 2120gns, the October second calver “Dandi Trigger Mali” at 2100gns and the November third calver “Dandi Ponder Bell VG87” at 2050gns. Other calved heifers also sold for 2000gns for the “Woodmarsh Zoro” daughter from the “Iris” family.

The close to calving heifer trade saw members of the “Nora”, and “Josie” families selling to 1450gns, with more recently served heifers selling to 1000gns.

Heifer calves were in demand on the day selling to 480gns for September born daughters by “Vieuxsaule Flame” and 450gns twice for “Dandi Doorman Keller” and “Dandi Uno Lady”.
