Milky Guernseys

HEAVY milking Guernsey cows led the trade for stock at the sale of the senior portion of Paul Wyatt and Sons herd at Arundel, East Sussex.

There were two 2000gns bids from R L Poulter who took a total of 28 head back to his Channel Island herd on the Isle of Wight. The two cows were daughters of the home-bred bull Slindon Indus Admiral. Another made 1700gns to the same buyer.

AVERAGES: 89 cows £633 and 73 calved and served heifers £545. (Norton and Brooksbank)
