8 Dairy

The mid-month Craven Dairy Auction had an entry of 8 Newly and fresh Calved Cows and Heifers forward for sale. Trade would be more mixed than a fortnight ago, two heifers exceeded £2000, those being a Pedigree Heifer from Messrs Baul’s Watergate Herd, calved 21 days and giving 30 litres, she sold for £2200, whilst Messrs Moon from Paythorne presented a commercial heifer calved 3 weeks, giving 32 litres selling at £2100. The champion on the day was from Messrs Bell Mireside herd, giving 27 litres and fresh, selling at £1920. Although the better end sold well, a commercial style of heifer was harder to shift and would be cheaper than the Christmas show week. Only one cow forward this week, a 6th calver, making £1080.
