Webbery Sale

20 cows from the Webbery herd were sold today at Hallsworthy Market meeting a strong trade.

The cows were due to calve in November and December and so all were dry, which meant that the principal buyer was able to come down from Yorkshire and purchased 7 lots, this was Ken Prestidge from Leyburn who is looking for a nucleus of Guernseys to add to his Shorthorn herd.

Coopers Court Herd Dispersal 29th September 2008

The dispersal sale of Mr W J Forrest’s Coopers Court Guernsey herd saw a strong trade for young milking cows and in particular the maiden heifers and heifer calves at foot. The sale of what was one of the newest herds in the breed was as a result of a change of farming policy and was a very sad day for Colin Gleed who had purchased the Guernseys in the summer and autumn of 2007.
