Harford Selina 2 made her mark at Pat Quinn's dispersal sale of Longhorn cattle from Cheltenham, Glos, when a top call of 4400gns was paid at Worcester Livestock Market.

Having established her Harford herd in 1976 it was a day to remember, when the April 2018-born female was knocked down to EJ Biddulph, Tregaron, Ceredigion.

She is by Wellhead Largo Ex90 and out of the Dunstall Hector daughter, Harford Lola, and sold with her heifer calf at foot, which is sired by Blackbrook El Nino.

Second top price at 3100gns was Harford Utopia

Not far behind on 3000gns was the four-year-old cow, Harford Sunflower 2 and another heifer calf by El Nino which sold to JE Barker and Sons, Shrewsbury. This cow is backed by Wellhead Largo and bred from the Blackbrook Tudor daughter, Harford Orchid.
