Borderway Monthly Dairy Day

Borderway, Rosehill, Carlisle, CA1 2RS

KIBBLESTON HERD TOPS WITH A FINE GLOSS

Borderway was once blessed with a superb offering of excellent dairy cattle for the May Dairy Day sale.  Buyers had an incredible group of highly productive milking animals to select from consigned by many of the standout herds in Scotland and the north of England.  Trade topped at £2850 to average £2171 with almost all the 137 milking animals selling for £2000 or more. 

Kibbleston Fedora Gloss topped the days trading selling for £2850.  She was consigned by the Craigs’ from Carneil Farm near Dunfermline.  She was sired by Sandy-Valley Fedora and was bred from a GP82 dam that gave over 12000kgs in her third. 

Balcurvie Holsteins from Fife sold eight heifers to average £2400 and topped at £2800 for a Doorman daughter that was bred from the Bricknell Ethel cow family.  This heifer has potential to compete at the shows this summer.

Nether Pratis Farming Company sold 12 cows and heifers to average £2327 and topped at £2750 for Cambus Piston Electric.  She was a close to perfect heifer sired by Sandy-Valley Piston giving 35kgs.  This special group topped the cow trade at £2650 with Cambus Useful Elspeth.

Allan Frame from North Quarter Farm continued the dispersal of the North Quarter herd with six cows and heifers to average £2441 and topped at £2700 for a powerful framed heifer sired by Overtime.

Ayrshire heifers topped at £2600 for a very milky heifer consigned by the Mattinson family from Rosewain Farm near Wigton.

British Friesian milkers topped twice at £2200 for heifers consigned by the Neill family from Thornington Farm in Northumberland.

A group of 15 Irish Friesians from Arbigland Farms near Dumfries topped at £2000 for a recently calved cow to average £1650.

A well grown group of 31 British Friesian and Montbeliarde in calf heifers topped at £1980 to average £1623.  They were due in June to the Milking Shorthorn and Angus sires.

Bulling heifers topped at £1020 for Greencastle Skwalker Belle who was consigned by the Sewell from near Cockermouth.  Heifer calved topped at £700 to average almost £500.

The next dairy sale at Borderway takes place on Wednesday 18th May and features 200 pedigree Holsteins and Brown Swiss.  This includes the dispersal on all the youngstock from Dan Weavers herd in Staffordshire.
