The monthly show and sale of Dairy Cattle at Lancaster had a catalogued entry of just short of 50 new Calved heifers and cows including a couple of Holstein breeding bulls.

The pre-sale show was expertly judged by Mr Philip Halhead of Norbreck farm, whom had two strong heifer classes out to judge with class two, the none haltered heifer class, one of the largest seen for some time. The championship rosette was awarded to lot 8 from the Inman Family of Strickland Hill of Witherslack with Witherslack Mika Julie, a very stylish heifer giving 34 litres. The reserve champion was awarded to lot 10 from Enchanted Holsteins of Elswick with Creskeld Lavanguard Honeysuckle, a much admired second calved cow giving 52 litres.

There was a firm trade throughout the sale with buyers looking to purchase heifers yielding plenty of milk. The sale topped at £2,120 for the champion, Witherslack Mika Julie, with the reserve champion, Creskeld Lavanguard Honeysuckle, selling to £2,100. R Morris-Eyton and Son of Beck Side sold lot 49, Beckside Trump Bet 2, to £1,950. The consignment of heifers from the Drinkall Bros of Catshaw Farm always creates plenty of interest and sold to a top of £1,900 and £1,880 (twice). There was thirteen heifers sell in excess of £1,800 with all heifers forward selling to a market average of £1,592.63.
A couple bulls in today’s sale, saw lot 71, Sandley Pacific, a bull with a depth of breeding from a line of 9 generations of VG and EX from George Sanderson and Family of Blackleach House Farm, sell to £2,150.

The first prized pair of heifers was awarded to J Burrow and Sons of the Stardale herd with lots number 40 Stardale Guarini Vaakje 5 and 41 Stardale Supersire Millie selling to £1,800 and £1,700.

The Christmas Spectacular show and sale of Dairy Cattle will be held on Monday 12th December with entries for the catalogue closing on Friday 2nd December.
