Shown by Peter Baul, top honours were awarded to the first and second prize newly calven pedigree Holstein Friesian heifers.

The victor, a daughter of the Semex sire Regancrest Dolman, sold for top price of £2,320, the reserve, by the Genus bull Burlane Tennyson, at £2,280. Both are 25 days-calved home-breds giving 33kg and 32kg of milk respectively.

The two principals were knocked down to first-time Skipton dairy buyers E & W Threlfall – husband and wife Eddie and Brenda, and son Paul – a family of dairy farmers and milk wholesalers who supplemented their 140-strong dairy herd at Holt Farm, Rishton, Blackburn.

They sell milk to milkmen, shops and cash and carry outlets in Rishton, Darwen, Great Harwood, Clayton, Rishton, Padiham and Accrington.

The third generation Baul family dairy herd is no stranger to championship success in the Craven Dairy Auction arena. They currently have 80 pedigree milkers, with their 450-acre farm complemented by an arable offering of wheat, barley and maize.

The third prize newly calven heifer from IRG Collins, of Dewsbury, fell for £2,120 to show judge Stephen Britton, of Ripon.

With a small, yet select entry of 11 dairy animals, newly calven heifers averaged £1,890.
