The draft sale from the Mauchline-based herd was staged for Bryce Cunningham who has taken on the mantle from his late father Robert, who passed away last year.

 

All 42 lots sold, averaging more than £1,420.

 

Topping the trade at 5,000gns was West Mossgiel Lizzie 65. The Willsbro Red Razzle daughter, 6.25 per cent Ayrshire, is the seventh generation to classify Excellent or VG, and was bought by Mungo Bryson, Catrine, Ayrshire. Five members of the animal’s family were up for sale and they averaged £2,635.

 

Mattinson

 

Lizzie 60 was the next cow to feature on the price list, selling for 3,900gns to the Mattinson family, Wigton. The powerful framed 2010-born cow, by Aramis, was still milking with her second.

 

At 3,200gns was Mossgiel Bookman Emerald 2. Born in 2010 and 50 per cent Ayrshire, it was sold dry and due in early January to Aramis. A granddaughter of the Canadian cow Bonnie Brae Emerald, it was bought by the syndicate members, R. and M. Scott, Mossblown, Ayrshire; A. Woodburn and Sons, Galston; A.W. Montgomerie, Ochiltree; along with A. and A. Gilliland, Mauchline, who are establishing an elite show herd.

 

In-calf

 

Noard Easter Black Lawn, an in-calf heifer which had been bought in 2014 by Robert Cunningham, sold for 2,150gns. Sired by Destry and from 10 generations of Excellent cows from the famous Roxy family, it was sold dry in last week’s sale, but due in February to St Jacob Destry Heztry. A pure Holstein, it went to K. Brough and Son, Low Houses, Wigton.

 

Also making the 2,000gns mark was West Mossgiel Cherub, a 2009 daughter of Henkeseen Remedy Red. It went to D. and C. Sanderson, Wigton – who bought a number of super cows.
