With such a strong lineup of pedigree British White breeding cattle forward, the autumn show and sale at Melton Mowbray Market 2018 did not disappoint!


Taking the Breed and Interbreed Cattle Championships - as well as the first ever Best in Show title at the event - was the outstanding senior cow Bulby Jasmine from Delamore Farms Ltd. Shown with her heifer calf Leverington Evita at foot, Jasmine also topped the sale at 2200gns, selling to new member Mr B Pickford of Wiltshire. Mr Pickford also picked up Jasmine's full sister Bulby Lupin (again from Delamore Farms) at 1800gns, as well as two very smart yearling heifers at 1200gns apiece - Templar Holly and Templar Heather - both bred and exhibited by K & RP Harding.


Taking home another four superb yearling heifers to join the Lordswood herd was Mr J Brain, Warwickshire, who secured Woodbastwick Downtown (Rotac Farms) at 1800gns, Tollesbury Hopscotch (Dr V St Joseph) at 1700gns, Woodbastwick Ricci (Rotac Farms) at 900gns and Abbotsholme Rose (Abbotsholme School Farm) at 750gns.


Selling at 1550gns to first-time British White buyer Mr T Broadhurst of Derbyshire was in-caf heifer Leverington Clara, as well as her stable mate Leverington Delia for 700gns, both bred and exhibited by Delamore Farms Ltd. Mr Broadhurst also took home Tollesbury Twist, bred and exhibited by Dr V St Joseph for 1300gns and Abbotsholme Lily from the Abbotsholme School Farm for 700gns. In the unhaltered section, Mr Lucas - also of Derbyshire - picked up in-calf cow Nidderdale Voodoo, bred by Mr A Fisher and exhibited y Mr D Knowles, for 800gns.


Many thanks to pre-sale show judge Mr Paul Pennington, Melton Mowbray Market Auctioneers and all the breeders and buyers for making the event a great success once again.
