‘April Dairy Sale Sees Four Generations of the Burrow Family take Champion and Reserve’

The monthly sale of Dairy Cattle at NWA Lancaster had a small entry of 12 Cows and Heifers forward. The presale judging was in the expert hands of Andrew Townsend, Nelson. He placed the first prize Halter led heifer, Stardale Mincio Torpedo, as his Champion from J Burrow & Son. His Reserve Champion went to the second place Halter led heifer, Stardale Reflex Vaakje 4, from the same home.

It was a pleasure to see four generations of the Burrows family at the sale, from 96 year old Jim Burrow to Nine year old Great Grandson Issac Burrow, we thank you for your support at the Dairy Sales over the years and look forward to the dealing with you in the years to come.

In the sale ring, it was the Champion leading the way, this cracking heifer, supported by 5 Generations of VG & EX and sold giving 36 litres, reached a final call of £1900, selling to the judge.
The Reserve Champion, Stardale Reflex Vaakje 4, from the renowned Vaakje family, realised £1500, joining the same herd as the Champion.

It was a day of quality rather than quantity, with a very nice show of cows and heifers forward, coupling this with a ringside of both local and travelled buyers, led to a fast trade for all classes. The best heifers sold to average £1490, with two lesser sorts just shy of £1000, leading to an overall average of £1370. Cows sold to £1100 for a second calver from J & M Sanderson, giving 36litres.
