Penrith Sale - April 2022

27th May 2022 | Judges: David Jackson

Demand certainly outstripped supply at Penrith’s May Dairy sale. A smaller but very select entry of pedigree Dairy Shorthorns created a lot of interest and demand was the best seen for quite a while. Prices increased significantly from the April sale.

Modern genetics were in evidence with top notch milky heifers on offer. Four heifers sired by the popular Shorthorn Sires bull Bushmills Jazz, average a phenomenal £2947.88 the heifers on sale were all giving over 24litres of milk.
