Last week’s Red Ladies Derby and Weaned Calf Sale saw the Foxhill team peak at 7000gns for Foxhillfarm Naughtybutnice, a January-born heifer by Neuf and out of Foxhillfarm Izzy (in the feature image), a full sister to the noted Foxhillfarm Gracie.
Selling with a beef value of +47 she goes back to the outstanding Bankdale Alice and was the pick of John McInerney, Newmarket on Fergus, Co Clare, Eire.
A 4000gns call saw Charlotte’s heifer Foxhillfarm Mama sell to William Orme, Askrigg, Leynurn. She’s a Guards Boomer daughter out of the Wilodge Vantastic daughter Bankdale Elizabeth and sold with a beef value of +43.
Following her were three at 3000gns, with the first of these being the French heifer Laplubelle, a daughter of Erable and out of Amande, a Neuf daughter. She sold to H W Jerman, Glyn Brochan, Llanidloes.
Also making this price was Foxhillfarm Mistique, a daughter of the record priced Trueman Jagger out of Foxhillfarm Justtheone, a Loosebeare Fantastic daughter and a full sister to the 35,000gns Foxhillfarm Jasper. She sold with a beef value of +46 and was taken by the Gould family, Bomere Heath, Shrewsbury.
And the final one at 3000gns was the Guards Boomer daughter Foxhillfarm Martini. This October 2016-born heifer is out of Bankdale Elizabeth, a full sister to Foxhillfarm Gracie. She also headed to Shrewsbury with the Gould family.
Foxhillfarm Nichole, a January-born daughter of Jagger then sold at 2800gns, with this one being out of Foxhillfarm Iola, another full sister to Gracie. She sold with a beef value of +43 and was bought by Lucy James, Holsworthy, Devon.
Then making 2000gns was Foxhillfarm Modesty, a full ET sister to the 3000gns Martini. She sold with a beef value of +44 and was knocked down to S H Hamplett, Haughton, Stafford.
Away from the Foxhill team it was good to see our breeding in demand, with a daughter of Foxhillfarm Jasper selling at 12,000gns when selling to Gary Bell’s Haassidefarm herd, Lockerbie.
