Commercial cows built on strong pedigrees met a strong trade at last week’s Coteswood herd dispersal for John and Ivan Tivey.

Topping the trade was Coteswood Edelrose 10, a 2002 born cow by Dado Luke Montu and in-calf to Smiddiehill Knighthawk.

Youngstock were also a strong trade with the 17 heifer calves averaging £374 and hitting 480gns twice.

Buyers flocked from far and wide to buy these well bred cows, with auctioneers Norton and Brooksbank reporting a strong contingent of west country and northern buyers.
