Picston Shottle Cow Tops Hensol Sale

The Hensol herd owned by the Bell family was dispersed at Borderway, Carlisle on Thursday 13th September following the sale of their dairy farm near Castle Douglas.  Trade topped at 1,700gns for a fourth lactation cow with buyers travelling from near and far.

Trade topped at £1700 for a cow sired by Picston Shottle and milking in her fourth lactation having calved in July.  She was giving almost 50kgs and was purchased by W Risk, Stirling.  Mr Risk also purchased a young cow in her second lactation for £1600.  This fancy uddered cow was due in November.

Selling for £1650 was a daughter of Gen-I-Beq Sammy milking in her second lactation and due again in January.  She was purchased by Harper Adams College in Shropshire.

Mr Bowe from Penrith purchased a number of high yielding cows topping at £1520 for a daughter of Comestar Lobster.  This very milky cow was producing close to 50kgs in her third lactation having calved in July.
