LEADING livestock auctioneers Harrison & Hetherington are to co-host sale of elite cattle from the Willsbro Herd in collaboration with Kivells.

Taking place at the Exeter Livestock Centre, 120 Pedigree Holsteins from the world renowned Willsbro Herd are set to go under the hammer on Monday, June 7, offering a rare opportunity to purchase this exceptional breed.

Today, the Willsbro herd is one of the leading Holstein breeding establishments in the world.

Many of the sires represented have been carefully chosen over the years with a combination of genomic and proven sires, with deep pedigrees that have been closely developed for the last 16 years.

With impressive infrastructure designed to maximise cow comfort and production and minimise disease risk, today Pawton Dairy offers impressive success stories.

Currently the herd is averaging 43 litres per cow, and the Wills family remain passionate about breeding for production persistency and performance.

Commenting on this year’s sale, the family said that in their minds, this group of Holsteins are by far the best group that they have assembled to date.

Glyn Lucas, Auctioneer at Harrison & Hetherington, said: “Opportunities like this are rare in the Holstein World and we are glad we can now share such a unique pedigree with you at this special event. There is no other sale in Europe where you can select Holstein cattle with such impressive pedigrees, outstanding classifications, massive production, high genomics and with style that can win shows.

“Almost 1,500 cows are milked at Pawton Dairy and the production is phenomenal. Together with Kivells, we all look forward to welcoming you to Exeter on June 7 for what is sure to be an incredible Spring Sale. It will also be exciting to hear your personal success stories from your Willsbro purchases in the near future.”
