New West Country record for Aberdeen-Angus at Sedgemoor Auction Centre

17 July 2018

The major reduction sale for Mrs UM & Mr RJ Venner of their Woodington herd of pedigree Aberdeen-Angus set a new Sedgemoor record and what is believed to be a “West Country” record for an Aberdeen-Angus heifer with calf at £6,510.  Woodington Pinky Gloria R488, born January 2015, by Oakchurch Darkley M088 and out of a home bred Dark Lane Extra Eric H326 sired cow set the ring alight, with her Woodington Ellen Erica U582 embryo bred heifer calf at foot.  Woodington Ellen Erica by Rawburn Fast Ball P844 out of Rawburn Ellen Erica J926, possibly the best breeding cow at Rawburn, was snapped up by Mr AW Neish of the Rodmead herd.  Mr Neish also purchased heifer Woodington Pinky Gloria R491, by Dark Lane Jonty L402 and out of the homebred Lockerley Top Gun F731 sired cow with embryo heifer calf Woodington Idlewyld Rachis U580 at foot for £4,620.  Woodington Idlewyld Rachis was by Remitall H Rachis 21R, the 2007 Edmonton Farmfair Grand Champion and Supreme Interbreed Champion and out of Hoff Idlewyld SC S34 300, who is from one of the best female lines in North America.

Rob Venner commented he was delighted with their reduction and wished breeders and new establishing breeders the best of luck with their purchases. He hoped many would be shown in the future.
