Walescot Holsteins to 2000gns

Kilton Alice Red 28, bred in Messrs Baddiley’s herd, Nottinghamshire, was the pick of the draft sale from Ian Wakley’s Walescot herd in Somerset last week. Out of a VG-87 dam with an Excellent -90 sister she made 2000gns.

The second highest price went to a nine year old cow Walescot Patron Pansy. Two months fresh she was giving 60kg daily and travels to Hemyock, Devon, purchased by P J Shere for 1800gns. At 1700gns a West Midlands buyer snapped up Kilton K Sunshine 42, bred from six generations of VG/EX dams.

Pat Robertson, Gloucestershire, acquired a dozen milky cows including Walescot Mayfair Edloma, one of several tidy daughters of Firth Mayfair in the herd, for 1650gns.

Served heifers due in the New Year made up to 1000gns and yearlings reached 860gns thrice, (Norton and Brooksbank with Kivells).
