The article offers highlights of the final dispersal of the Painley Holstein herd. The event ended an era of accomplished breeding that has had an influence on Great Britain's black-and-white genetics. The bidding reached a top of 10,000gns and the herd's 100 cows and calved heifers level at £2,257. Brought out in tremendous form by the herd management partnership of David Hastings and his son David, the cattle attracted a capacity crowd, but it was a cow bought from the Burrow family's Stardale herd in Lancashire that proved the most tempting.
