A fantastic day for the monthly Dairy sale at Lancaster, a great entry concluded in a day brimming with atmosphere as many new purchasers were in attendance as the added numbers were certainly a big attraction; the trade was superb from start to finish with buyers for every commodity on offer, every female that travelled through the ring found a new home!

The Show was well supported, with many showing their animals as the quality in the shed was awesome once again, the Judge Mr Sam Bailey of Stafford, had a tough job on his hands but he did a great job and for his Champion he selected Stardale Uno Vaakje from J Burrow & Son, of Preston, she was bred from this great Vaakje line, milking well yielding daily she was first prize in the halter led heifer class and then crowned champion, she sold for £2,100 to A Bargh of Skelton. The Reserve Champion was taken by new consigners EH & R Eccles of Chorley, this second prize halter led heifer then secured the reserve champion ribbon, Denham Hill Prize Guy, April calved on the 10th August and was yielding a credible daily she was secured by Bradley Farms Ltd of Preesall, Blackpool for £2,000.

A great selection of animals on offer today and all vendors must be congratulated once again for the quality consigned, certainly something for many different buyers from far and wide and great to see, the increased numbers attracted a superb crowd! This resulted in a buzz around the ring.

The bull trade was led by a super bull from J Burrow & Son, Stardale Superstella, bred from the great Stella family with longevity and fat and protein in abundance, she was purchased by a local purchaser for £1,820.
