Cattle for sale
The Society-supported Spring sale of British White breeding cattle at Melton Mowbray saw an excellent trade for the lots on display with a full clearance and strong average price, following on from another successful sale at Melton back in September.
The top price of the sale was given for the 19-month old bull Alcroft Bruno from Miss S Cook, Cambridgeshire, selling for 2600gns (£2730) to Mr S McDonald, Lancashire to join his newly-formed Cross House herd. The next highest price was also paid for a bull, 2-year-old Oldington Cornelius Fudge from Mr P Pennington, Shropshire, which sold for 1800gns (£1890) to a new breeder from Yorkshire.
The female section also showed a good demand with in-calf heifer Leverington Catherine from Delamore Farms, Norfolk selling for 1400gns (£1470) and joining Oldington Cornelius Fudge at the new herd in Yorkshire. A consignment of three in-calf heifers from Mr and Mrs Kendrick of Leicestershire sold for 1150gns (£1207.50) each to the estate of Lord Cranbrook, Suffolk, and a heifer with calf at foot from Mr P Pennington, Shropshire sold for 1120gns (£1176) to repeat buyer Mr Swales for his commercial suckler herd.
The British White Cattle Society would like to thank Melton Mowbray for their continued support and excellent service, as well as all the breeders and buyers whose hard work made for another truly successful event.
