Some of the most prolific Holstein cow families featured in the February Border & Lakeland sale. Ashlyn, Alicia, Adeen, Missy, Licorice and Roxy all made this catalogue special, trade topped at 4,000gns for a yearling heifer with milking heifers topping at 3,000gns. The overall average for almost 100 milkers was £1953; 44 animals sold for or more than £2000 with 43 buyers recorded from 16 counties with all the four home nations represented. There was a noticeable drop in the value for animals of lesser quality with a larger percentage of high yielding cattle selling below £1800.
