**DAIRIES TO £2300**

A superb trade for the first dairy sale of 2022 with many more needed to satisfy demand.

5 swept passed the £2000 mark with a framey heifer from Messrs Platt of Bamford topping the day at £2300.

Two heifers from the Leaventhorpe herd of John Allan made £2160 and £2110 with cows topping at £2110 for a fourth calver from the Broadley family of Hartington, Buxton.

A Brown Swiss X second calver from Messrs Callwood of Knutsford reached £2010.

Trade was exceptionally strong for all qualities with many purchasers going away empty handed.

Young calves were also sought after with Holsteins topping at £330 and a pretty Shorthorn heifer from Messrs Swinson to £320.
