Auctioneer’s Report (Will Alexander): The Christmas Dairy sale certainly didn’t disappoint, with a smashing entry of both cows and heifers, all vendors must be congratulated on the quality put forward for the sale. Thanks go to our judges Shaun Sowray, Ripon and Tom Ayrton, Lancaster, who had a challenging task proceeding over the 7 classes, but with competence and speed they whittled the entries down to the 1st place Pedigree cow and the 1st place Pedigree Heifer for the Championship. Taking the Champion Rosette was Booth Bros of Wigglesworth Hall, Wigglesworth, Skipton, with their 3rd Calved 60 litre Cow, Hallcroft Collude Alex 2, having given 11,500litres and 13,500litres in her 1st and 2nd lactations, this seriously milky cow headed home with judge Tom Ayrton after sprightly bidding at £3,050. The Reserve Champion came from J & N Young, Jenkin Cragg, with Youngbro Allclass Catherine, 26days fresh and producing 41litres she also soared in excess of £3,000, topping the day £3,100, heading home with David Coulthurst, Goosnargh, Preston. Best heifers all regularly £2,200-£2,500, with J & R Waller, Killington and R&E Butterfield, Bentham both realising £2,600, closely followed by David Barton, Lupton, Kirkby Lonsdale at £2,550 all secured by the same buyer. Next draw heifers £1,850-£2,050, resulting in a solid average of £2,010 for all heifers forward. Cows in as much demand, especially those with milk, regular vendors George and David Whitwell, Austwick realised £2,320 & £2,380 of their pair of rosette winning 2nd calved non-pedigree cows. Whilst John & Nicola Young achieved £2,520 of their 2nd prize Ped Cow. Other better sorts £2,000+, next draw £1,500-£1,700, to average £2,000. A run of Fleck heifers form Robin Nicholson, Lupton, topped at £1,000 twice for in-calf heifers with bullers £800-£850. A nice group of Heifer calves from Roger & Alan Duncan, Mewith topped at £380, to average £340. For pictures and videos of the prize winners, see overleaf or check out our Facebook page.
