Sally Wellock, who runs the Harehills pedigree Holstein herd at West House Farm, Oldfield, saw her lots hit £2300 twice to top Craven Auction Mart's dairy show and sale at Skipton.

She first stepped up with the reserve champion, a newly calved 30-litre heifer by Picardus, out of Harehills Ethel. She sold locally to John Howard, of Heslaker.

Two lots later Harehills received the same money for the first prize cow, a 42-litre second calver, purchased by Aubrey Greenhalgh, of Preston. The same home also sold another newly calved cow at £1980 to the Hartley family of Beamsley.

The pre-sale championship was awarded to Peter Baul of the Ravensgate herd in Bishop Thornton, for his 15-day calved heifer by Bassingthorpe Bossman, which went on to sell for £1950 to Eric Marshall, Dacre.

The of 14 dairy stock saw pedigree newly calved heifers average £2005 and newly calved cows £1926.

A standalone show and sale for five pedigree bulls produced 100% clearance, with principal honours in the show arena falling to two young up and coming entries from the Aireburn herd of Brian and Judith Moorhouse at Hesper Farm, Bell Busk.

Claiming first prize was Aireburn Harlequin, a December, 2017-born Lineman son, bred from of the prolific Honey family. Boasting 12 generations of VG or EX, the red rosette winner sold for 2100gns to Malcolm Gratton, of Warsill.

It was however, the second prize winner, the January, 2018-born Aireburn Alderman, which topped the bulls at 2400gns. By Mogul and with 11 generations of VG or EX behind him, he sold to Robert Metcalfe, Brearton.
