A smaller show of Dairy Cattle forward this morning were met by a full ringside of local and travelled buyers.

The pre-sale show was judged by Jack Raby of Preesall, who awarded the champion rosette to the first place cow, Lot 23, Kirkwood Goldenboy Ann, from Henry & Mark Cornthwaite, Garstang. This big strong 2nd calved cow, bred from four generations of EX cows and sold giving 36.4litres, realised £1800 selling to the judge.

The reserve champion rosette was awarded to Lot 4, the first place Halter led heifer, from J Burrow & Son, Tunsteads. Sired by Stardale Vast, who also sired the champion of the July sale at Lancaster, yielding 36litres and just over a month calved, she later went onto realise £1800, again, selling to the judge.

Top price of the day came from W & C Gorst & Son, Hole of Ellel, Saltoke Jeeves Rebecca 157, giving 31litres and from one of the top cow families of the Saltoke Herd, this smart lasting heifer realised £1900.

As well as the pedigree Holsteins, a pair of Montbelliarde second calvers from GA Haston & Son, realised £1050 & £1020.

The best pair of heifers was awarded to J Burrow & Son, with Lots 3 & 4, winning the Cornthwaite Cup, these realised £1720 & £1800 respectively.

All heifers sold to full value, with an overall average of £1587.50 for heifers and £1590 for cows.
