Holstein breeders were out in force earlier this week to secure some of the breed’s best bloodlines at the Centenary Holstein Sale report at Stoneleigh.

Heading up the trade were two 14,000gns calls, the first of which came for eight month old calf, Sahara Talent Licorice from Sahara Holsteins. By Talent and out of Savage-Leigh Licorice, an Ex 92 rated dam, this one sold to Tom and Arfon Philips’ Pedran herd, West Wales.

Also at this money was a guaranteed heifer calf from a flush of Redliner and Advent Maureen. This one from David Robinson, Cumbria, sold to Hefin George, Pembrokeshire.

At 11,500gns Tom and Andy Cope sold Huddlesford Derllia Melody a daughter of Shanael Gelpro Melody to her dam’s breeders Shanael Farms.

Then at 10,000gns David Robinson sold another guaranteed heifer calf by Talent and out of the renowned red family Carabeth/Caramec from Yursden. Buying this one was Peter Horrell, Longthorpe.
