Daughter of Sunny Boy sought after

WHEN the Elmore herd of Holstein Friesians was dispersed in Glos for Graham Littleton, a 1994-bred Sunny Boy daughter proved the most sought after lot.

It was claimed by local farmer John Round at 1050gns, with the same buyer also taking another cow at 900gns reflecting the strong demand from local dairy farmers who were out in force and showing a keen interest in the youngstock. This trend took served heifer trading to 880gns.

Averages: 89 cows £682; 45 served heifers £614 and 34 maiden heifers £331. (Bruton Knowles) &#42
