3000gns for HF

A COW bought in a batch of milkers was sold for the top price of 3000gns when Messrs Eric Dennett and Son dispersed its Hundleby herd of Holstein Friesians.

She was sold dry and due in June to Townson Lindy. Buyers were D R Brown, Sedgefield, Co Durham.

AVERAGES: 77 cows £907; five served heifers £701 and seven empty heifers £400. (Norton and Brooksbank)
