Good commercial trade for Simmental at Thirsk

heifer

The annual show and sale for the North East Simmental Society was held and an entry of 27 head forward, all but two of which found new homes. A very good show of cattle with an improvement in quality met a very sound commercial trade, with several potential purchasers leaving empty handed.

The Judge for the event, Mr Richard Elliott of Tadcaster, awarded the championship to a maiden heifer, Swaleside Violet from the herd of Brian & Anne Wise, Hall Farm, Skipton-On-Swale, Thirsk, which was sold for 1120 guineas to Mr W Warren from Gommersall.

Swaleside Violet

The reserve championship was awarded to Moorside Voyager, a 20 month old bull from John & Gill Smith’s Moorside Herd , Brownhowe Farm, Stape, Pickering, which sold for 2050 guineas to Mr G Bowes of Great Stainton.

Moorside Voltage

Top price of the day was the Popes Laird son, Moorside Voltage, again from the Smiths and sold to the Judge Richard Elliot for 2250gns.

Top Price Female was Beaghill Fiona 2nd by Balmano Hitman and sold by Messrs M. Brears & Sons, Goole for 1650gns to Mr. N. Kendall, Whitby.
