November 2010 - Champion leads Moira Holstein entry at 3,000gns

There was a buoyant trade for quality heifers and young cows with prices reaching a ceiling of 3,000gns at this week’s Holstein NI show and sale, held at the Pedigree Sales Arena, Moira.

Hitting the headlines in both the show and sale rings was the supreme champion, Clandeboye Design Sinead 2, bred and exhibited by Mark Logan of Clandeboye Estates, Bangor. Born in May 2008, she is by Regancrest Design, and is bred from an EX92 classified dam.

Just over three weeks calved this much-admired heifer is giving 36 kilos daily, and was snapped up by Cyril and Martin Millar for their Glenleary herd at Coleraine.

Judge, Timothy Haffey from the Kilvergan Herd in Lurgan, described the champion as outstanding. “She is very correct, and has good legs and feet and a sound udder.”

Messrs Millar also paid out 2,900gns to secure the reserve champion, Killane Rosso Pretty Pat, consigned by brothers David and Austin Perry, Ahoghill. This April 2008 born entry is by Ards Rosso, and bred from a VG83 heifer.

Next best at 2,520gns was Ards Kaiser Ruth, a July 2008 born heifer brought out by Harry Patton and Sons, Wilson and Wallace, from Newtownards. She was sired by the home-bred Ards Kaiser, and is bred from a Braedale Freelance daughter. This one also joins the Millar’s Glenleary herd.

An entry of heifers from the McLean family’s Relough herd based at Donaghmore, Dungannon, sold to a top of 2,500gns for the September 2008 born Relough Boliver Jessica.

Next best for the McLean team at 2,400gns was the October 2008 born Relough Buckeye Danna 2.

Clandeboye Estates also realised 2,400gns for the January 2008 born Clandeboye Forbidden Ruth.

Jim Morrison, Downpatrick, sold the June 2008 born Inch Lee Daphne 2 for 2,220gns. This fresh calved heifer was sired by Comestar Lee, and is backed by six generations of VG and EX dams.

Mr Morrison also secured a bid of 2,080gns for the Jenny Lou Mrshal Toystory daughter, Inch Toystory Camelia.

Auctioneer Michael Taaffe said:”Overall trade was strong for top quality heifers, but second quality lots were somewhat back in price on previous months.”

Other leading prices include:

William Crawford, Brookeborough, Ardmore Stormatic Lheros  - 2,000gns to G McKnight; and Ardmore Stormatic Jillie – 2,000gns to Stanley Porter, Drumbo.

Ronald McLean and Sons, Relough Realm Dog – 2,000gns to Wm Herron.

Clandeboye Estates, Bangor, Clandeboye CF Claire – 1,920gns to C and M Millar.

Alan Patterson, Donaghadee, Herdstown Sam Roxy – 1,920gns to C and M Millar.

Ronald McLean and Sons, Relough Ratchet Dinah – 1,920gns to C and M Millar.

Ronald McLean and Sons, Relough Realm Jessica – 1,900gns to Mr Davis.

Average: 35 sold to average 1,837.50 per head.
