Gisburn Auction Dairy Cattle Show Results

The sun was shining yesterday for the Dairy Cattle Show sponsored by Dugdale Nutrition and held at Gisburn Auction Mart. The show was judged by Mr. Doug Graves.

Auctioneer Fred Spurgeon said, "A great show of heifers on offer today with a very strong pedigree class. Today’s judge was Doug Graves and any one of the last six in the ring could have been the winner. Top price came for a three weeks calved heifer from James and Anne Rogerson at £2,180 with Mike Robinson close behind at £2,150. A superb second lactation cow from new vendor Andrew Sudell sold at £2,140 to Tom Green, Wigan. Colin Singleton’s first and second prize heifers went to Kelly Hill at £2,000 and £1,980. Winner of first and second prize non-registered heifers went to Ed and Alec Towers selling at £1,950 and Alec taking £1,640 for a black legged imported heifer going to Richard Shuttleworth."
