Symonds and Sampson in conjunction with Frome Livestock Auctioneers were delighted to hold the 2nd Dancing Hill Pedigree Fleckvieh Production Sale on behalf of Tom and Em Voizey, with bidders from across the country in-person and on Mart Eye.
Top of the day went to Lot 5, DH Bella 8, a freshly calved heifer coming from a powerful family topped to £2152. Several more broke the £2,000 mark, with Lot 8 DH Lolla 7 selling to £2121 known for high solids, Lots 4 DH Ritha 5; a real classy heifer roaring to £2100 and Lot 9 DH Leila 5 known for filling for the churns to £2047.
The run of 40 in calf heifers were exceptionally well received seeing Lot 14, DH Rena 7, calving in October to Limousin race away to £2089, in hot pursuit was DH Senta 4, a beautiful Dream Daughter, which again an October calver to Limousin rung the bell at £2079. Eleven more heifers cruised past the £1500 barrier. 16 month old heifers which have just seen the bull or been served proved very popular, seeing Lot 45 DH Zoli 15 excel to £1207 with Lot 48, DH Sanela 12 whose family is known for consistently high milk yields flew to £1165.
A superb consignment yet again from the Voizey family, with Monday’s outstanding sale results proving how popular the Fleckvieh breed is. With a following around the ring and online through Mart Eye, the heifers have been sold across the country seeing them travel from Cornwall up to Derbyshire. It was a pleasure to sell such a superb sample of the finest herd of Fleckviehs.
