The most talked about lot ahead of this momentous sale, Willsbro Emilyann, an Ensenada Taboo Planet daughter out of Wabash-Way Emilyann, a VG88 classified dam has just been knocked down for the day’s leading price so far of 90,000gns. This one, the highest genomic index heifer in the sale today with an index of 2429 had been the subject of intense speculation before today and didn’t disappoint.
From a starting bid of 20,000gns the money quickly racked up past the 30,000gns mark and the 40,000gns level to hit 55,000gns in a matter of moments and then leapt on to 65,000gns mark and on past 70,000gns at slow at 80,000gns before a number of 1000gns bids pushed it to 86,000gns and then she went to 90,000gns with the crowd hushed as the hammer fell to loud applause. That is a new UK Holstein record with her selling to the Ponderosa herd, Spain.
Her full sister, Willsbro Emilyamber then went on to collect a 30,000gns bid from Maurice Jones. She has a GPTI of 2096.
