Winbrook Cactus 30

Tuesday 23rd May 2017

A top draw entry at Penrith included the second part of the dispersal of the Brafell herd on behalf of Messrs J Teasdale & Son, Dumfries, the first part to disperse the milking section of the Winbrook herd on behalf of Messrs GA & DW Dents together with consignments from Bishopsbrae, New Park, Oxton, Kidstones & Parkhouse.

Topping the sale at 2300gns was the newly calved heifer Winbrook Cactus 30th, a smart roan daughter of Winbrook Pedro EX91, giving 35 litres and selling to B Lawson & Sons, Fife.

Bulling heifers were particularly good to sell with a joint top price of 1000gns being paid for Brafell Lady Hermione 27th & 28th, both heifers were sired by the Teasdale’s stock bull Briscoll Laird and were out of full sisters. Young heifer calves topped at 450gns for Brafell Bella Donna 8th, a February 2017 born daughter by Briscoll Laird.

Only one bull was forward at the sale, a very dairy like son of Hooton Envoy, Oxton Xavier consigned by Oxton Farms, Tadcaster, he went on to sell for 1600gns and joins the Wigton based Parton herd of Messrs Hewson.
