Lancaster Livestock Auction: Renowned January Dairy Extravaganza

Monday 15th January

Six Dairy Cattle Sell over £2000 at Lancaster Auction Mart

The renowned January dairy sale at Lancaster saw a bumper catalogued entry of over 60. There was plenty of interest in the sale which attracted buyers from throughout the north of England and Midland counties as well. There was a fantastic atmosphere throughout the sale, with a real buzz around the ring.

The pre-sale show was capably judged by Mr Andrew Wilson of the Northshields Holstein herd, Fife. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Wilson for his time and expertise in travelling down to judge. There was an impressive line-up of heifers and bulls for him to cast his eye over, thanks must go to the vendors for the quality on offer. The champion was awarded to lot 30, Witherslack Mincio Joanne 2, a second calved cow yielding 46kg which went on to sell for £2,150, going home with the judge, she was consigned by the Inman Family of Strickland Hill. The reserve champion was awarded to H Wright and Son of Berryholme, Kendal with their heifer Berryholme Snowy Linda, this smart heifer sold for £2,100.

The sale day trade was topped by DJ & S Tomlinson of Bilsborrow Hall Farm, Preston with Bilsrow Jareb Lausine selling to £2,180, with Bilsbrow Presley Roxy 2, from the same good home, selling to £2,050. There was buoyant trade throughout the sale especially considering the recent drop in milk price and the current fodder situation. An overall market average of £1,627 for all in-milk dairy cattle forward was achieved.
The special show and sale of Holstein Breeding Bulls created plenty of interest with some potential buyers leaving empty handed. The Champion rosette was awarded to lot 65, Ingleview Perseus from R & E Butterfield, Bentham. The bull trade was topped by Stardale Solomon from J Burrow & Son, Barton which sold to £2050. This was closely followed by Enchanted Merlin selling to £2,000 from Enchanted Holsteins of Great Eccleston.
