Cow follows suit
A BID of 11,000gns saw the Aberdeen-Angus breed record for females matched at Perth this week.
It was paid for the cow Netherton Estona, part of a special herd reduction from Willie McLarens herd at Blackford, Auchterarder. The 1990-bred cow was bought by J Sutcliffe, Ulverston.
Other leading bids included 8000gns for Jarp Corona, a mature cow taken by R Quayle, Isle of Man and 7000gns from Chris Marler, Olney, Bucks, for Netherton Fleur.
Also at 7000gns was Netherton Favorite, an in-calf heifer bought by M Chapman, Cartmel, Cumbria. *
