Prized Pandora tops Carlisle suckled calves #BeefGB

Securing the top price of the sale was the British Blue cross heifer Pandora from Neil Hardisty, Cleator. By the British Blue stock bull Boothlow Ferrari and out of a home-bred Limousin cross cow, it was placed first in its class in the pre-sale show, and was also a winner in the baby beef section at Agri Expo last year. It headed home with the Alford family, Devon, for £4,400.

 

Next, was the winning Limousin heifer from Andrew Harrison, Great Asby. A daughter of the home-bred Limousin sire Noble Freddie, it sold for £3,800 to Stewart Betts, Stirling.

 

The first entry to make £3,300 was an 11-month-old Limousin cross steer from Willie Barron, Durham. Out of a pure British Blue heifer and by Mereside Godolphin it was knocked down to Messrs Blair, Fife.

 

A bid of the same came from A. Dickinson, Ashbourne, for the third prized Limousin cross heifer from T. Laird and Son, Cumnock.

 

At £3,000 was T.F. and C. Robinson, Kirkheaton, with a Limousin cross heifer which was bought by Anita Padfield, Norfolk.

 

Averages

Steers, £1,069 (+£40.19), heifers, £1,013.98 (+£23.62).
