Estcourt herd OK

ONLY 16 of the 234 cattle forward did not make more than 600gns when Richard Ball dispersed his Estcourt herd of Holstein Friesians at Tetbury, Glos.

A third calver that had given 9133kg with her second calf led the trade at 1350gns taken by B L and K M Sercombe, Lutterworth, Leics. An Amos sired cow, due with her second in May after an 8350kg heifer lactation, made 1300gns to M Hill, Corsham, Wilts.

AVERAGES: 146 cows and heifers £900; 13 served heifers £596 and 40 yearlings and calves £460. (Gwilym Richards).
