Champion to £2850 at January Dairy Sale

A large crowd of buyers from the Northern Counties, Shropshire, and Northern Ireland were in attendance at the renowned Lancaster January Show and Sale of dairy cattle.

The judging this month was conducted by the very able Adrian Jones (Garthmyll) who had a fantastic show of cattle before him in all 5 classes.

The supreme champion was awarded to the heifer which earlier took the first prize rosette in the halter-led heifer class Bilsrow Sentinel Star from DJ & S Tomlinson, sired by Sentinel and out of a VG86 Super Star cow, she later sold to a final bid of £2850 from EM Evans, Oswestry.

Reserve champion was the first prize non halter led heifer Pennine Moonbeam 97 from Messrs Drinkall Bros. Bred from 5 generations of VG cows she later sold to local sale supporters ME Wannop & Sons Ltd for £2750.

Top price of the day was achieved by a cracking heifer from James Burrow’s Stardale herd - Jerone Meg, which after fierce bidding was knocked down to £2950 to Mr R Simpson, Northern Ireland.

New calved cows topped at £2500 from Messrs Drinkall Bros with the first prize cow Whitecarr Baroque Lou from T Cowell selling to £2200.

In-calf heifers sold to £1750, £1700 from R Parker, with breeding bulls selling to £2100 for Stardale Vordan from J Burrow & Son.

A 100% clearance rate was achieved with all cattle selling to full value. Once again, credit to all vendors for another fantastic show of quality cattle at NWA Lancaster.
