comprising the dispersal of the celebrated NOREMEAD herd, the property of The C.B.Cooper Partnership.

MAY 27: 10.30am start – Machinery – see below. Followed by 65 served and 70 maiden heifers.

This is one of the breed’s most famous herds with a history of more than 70 years. It has won many Championships and show awards over the years and won the Holstein UK’s Premier Pedigree Herd Competition in 2010. 45 Ex and 95 VG cows are catalogued with the majority of the remainder GP. The herd is cubicle housed, fed on a basic diet of grass and maize silage and currently averages over 10,000kg 3.8% (3.18) for 220 cows and heifers. The great Noremead type is in evidence throughout the catalogue, which is based on tried and tested cow families that have been in the herd for many years such as Bittersweet, Helena, Magpie, Marbella, Mistressmorn, Present, Princess and Warner with more recent Holstein families like Ebony, Kansas, Lys, Michelle, Rapture and Sweet.

This is truly a sale with something for everybody – Excellent mature cows, productive young cows and milking heifers, some very promising summer and autumn calving heifers and over 160 younger cattle of great quality. It is likely to be one of the most important dispersals to take place this year.
