North West Auctions held its monthly collective sale of Dairy Cattle at Lancaster Auction Mart on Tuesday 18th May. A high quality catalogue of entries attracted a large crowd of local and travelled buyers, all keen to secure replacements from this renowned sale. All venders must be complimented on the quality of cattle presented at the sale, which was a wonderful advert for what Lancaster Dairy Sale offers.

Today we were pleased to welcome back the Pre – Sale Show, which was judged by Mr John Sanderson (Sandcrest) and kindly sponsored by Massey Feeds, Farmgate Vets and Paxtons.

The Show Champion was found from a wonderful line up of heifers, this heifer ‘Pennine Poppy 1524 shown by Drinkall Bros, Abbeystead. The Heifer was sired by Ladys – Manor Lamar.  The Reserve Champion was ‘Bilsrow Goodwhone Peg 3’ from Tomlinson Bilsrow Ltd, Bilsborrow.
