The sale included 12 animals owned by herdsman Peter Mellors and it was one of these that took the top honours at 4200gns.
Weeton Terrason Jacklyn was purchased out of the Holstein Genetic Elite Sale back in 2004 and had just gone 91 points having calved fresh with her fourth. By Innwood Terrsason, her grand dam was the 12,049kg Walkerbrae Raider Jacklyn EX93 11*.
