Saturday 9th December was the date of the “Quaish” Sale of British Limousins, when Nick & Lisa Hill & Family sold their show winning cattle, having relinquished the tenancy on their council farm.  The exceptionally well turned out cattle were greeted by a packed ring, who witnessed the first cow in the ring Quaish Flower sell at 5200gns with her May born bull calf at foot to Messrs DC & SA Martin of Helston Cornwall.  Matching this was Quaish Iris who sold with the only heifer calf at foot on the day to the Butt family of Shepton Mallet. Also at 5200gns was the 5 year old incalf cow Quaish Heebeegeebee by Culnagechan Firestar and out of Quaish Bee.  She is due in January to her 3rdcalf and was purchased by the Davis family of Glanyfer Wales for their Glencross herd.

The two incalf heifers sold on the day from the 2017 show team realised 5000gns for Lottie and 4500gns for Livingthedream, both secured by Mr B Quant of Newton Abbot to found a new pedigree herd.  He also took home the only yearling heifer of the day Quaish Magic at 3000gns.
