Lismulligan Top with a Choice from Priscilla
The first British Friesian Day at Borderway attracted both sellers and buyers from across the UK and Ireland. The quality on offer was exceptionally high with super attractive animals bred from pedigree with oceans of milk, impressive classifications and outstanding longevity. Trade topped at 4,400gns for one of the standout pedigrees with milking animals averaging £2300.
Nerewater British Friesians
Opening the sale was a very nice group of mikers, in-calf heifers and bulling heifers from the Nerewater herd owned by Richard bell from near Wigton. The first lot was Nerewater Butterfly 5 who was milking in her fifth lactation and had recently classified Excellent 93 points, her pervious two lactations had been over 10000kgs and she sold for 2,100gns to Mr Irving from near Wigton with this milking group averaging £2415.
Topping the milkers at 4,000gns was Nerewater Janice who was sired by Nerewater Rio Mission, her grand dam was an Excellent 96 pointed cow with massive production. She was purchased by Mr Allen from the Rep. of Ireland and will be a special show animal in the future.
Selling for 3,000gns was Nerewater Iris who had recently calved in her second lactation. She was sired by Nerewater Jackpot and bred from an Excellent dam followed by two Excellent 93 dams all with big production. She was purchased by Mr Wilson from near Egremount.
A well bred group of in-calf heifers from Nerewater topped at 2,600gns and averaged £2030. Nerewater Janice was sired by Nerewater Jackpot and was bred from an Excellent 93 grand dam and was purchased Mr Allen from the Rep. of Ireland.
Lismulligian British Friesians
Probably the best group of heifers to ever sell from the Lismulligan herd was consigned by the Lawson family who farm in Fife. This tidy group of bulling and maiden heifers averaged almost £1100 and topped the overall trade at 4,300gns for a choice of two full sisters sired by Lakemead Jingle and bred from the two time UK Dairy Expo Grand Champion Lismulligan Priscilla 41. High Hedley Hope Farm from Durham purchased this lot choosing Lismulligan Priscilla 63.

Inch GTW Daphne 4 sold in absentee selling for 3,900gns to Mr Dunn from Cornwall. She was consigned by Inch Genetics from N.
