Posted Wednesday, 07 December 2011, 1.38pm

KENDAL CHRISTMAS DAIRY CHAMPION £2,800 AND ALL PRIZE WINNERS AVERAGE £2,400

North West Auctions Kendal Mart started the Christmas show season with its much anticipated show and sale of dairy cattle.  A superb entry of cattle from local farms stood proud in the shippon showing themselves to full potential with several regulars commenting that it is the best show seen for quite some time.  Judging the show was longstanding supporter of Kendal dairy sales Mr Roy Swinson, Cumbria who had travelled through snow and ice to carry out his duties.  The championship was awarded to a newly calved heifer from regular consignors J & JA Burrow, Thursgill, just 14 days calved and giving 30ltrs she sold for the day’s top price and highest price in recent years of £2,800 purchased by the judge after spirited bidding.  Reserve champion was awarded to a fresh 3rd calved cow from GR Park & Sons, Low Deepslack, 1 week into her milk producing 32ltrs she also sold to the judge for £2,350.  A pedigree heifer from Mr P Knowles, Cragg Farm sold for £2,420 to ME Wannop & Sons, Morecambe followed by A & E Barnes, Brackenfold selling their 2nd prize heifer to JS & KM Wilson, Kendal for £2,320.  PW & D Swindlehurst’s 2nd prize cow sold for a final call of £2,100 selling to R & E Ladds, Benson Hall.
