Genetic Elite Sale £3,586 AVERAGE


Echo, bred from a VG87 pointed Jeeves dam from the UFM Dubs Eroy family, she was the highest GTPI catalogued, and sold to Nick Pole of Shepton Mallet at 7,500gns. Travelling all the way from Cheshire was Riverdane Allie Red from Mark & Susan Nutsford, this red heifer was bred from the Apple/Aiko family and sold to the Hussel family’s Perrins herd in Devon for 5,800gns. At 5,000gns was the February 2014 born Coxongreen Doorman Barbie, this high type heifer again from the Barbie family was consigned from Ron Tomkinson of Staffordshire and sold to David Buchanan of Happy Holsteins in Northern Ireland. The closest vendors to the market were incoming Holstein UK President Randolph Miller and son Brian from the Moorshard herd who entered three super heifers that were much admired at their herd visit the previous day. Their Meridian Alicia bred heifer from an VG89 second lactation Goldwyn heads east to be shown by Mike Carr of the Springbird herd at 4,900gns. The heifers on offer sold to 43 different buyers from 17 counties, travelling to Northern Ireland, Scotland and all across England and Wales. This was the furthest South that this sale has ever been staged and the very strong contingent of West Country purchasers fully warranted the holding of the sale at Sedgemoor Auction Centre. There was an 81% clearance rate on the day which produced an impressive average of £3,586. A special thankyou must go to Greenslade Taylor-Hunt’s Andrew Clements and Northern Sales Promoter Tom Cope for all their hard work on creating a great line-up of lots that offered something for everyone. Their skills and dedication paid off, making a great 2014 Genetic Elite Sale.
