Longhorns top 2000gns at Worcester

The Longhorn Cattle Society’s Spring Show and Sale at Worcester enjoyed continuing success again this year with a total clearance and a top price of 2000gns on two occasions.

The champion on the day Three Bridges Galileo, a two year old son of Blackbrook Masquerade from R J Sheppy and Son sold to the joint top price of 2000gns to J Newby, Shrewsbury, Shropshire.


Females were all very strongly supported with the reserve champion, an unserved heifer Wilford Georgina from Leicestershire breeder John Warner hitting the 2000gns mark to P V and J M Robinson, Crewe, Cheshire.

David and Angela Blockley’s long trip from Yorkshire was well worthwhile with the top of their consignment making 1850gns for a second prize In calf heifer Southfield Genie to established breeders Bell Farming, Newark, Nottinghamshire.

Cows and calves were well supported with Eric Wood’s Bollin French with a heifer calf at foot levelling at 1200gns to P V and J M Robinson, Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.

Averages: 10 cows with calves or in calf £981.75; 2 Served Heifers £1548.75; 16 unserved heifers £883.96; 2 bulls £1601.25.
