ABSTRACT
This article offers updates from the auctions of the Newstart herd of Thirsk, England-based David and Mary Cormack. The foreword in the catalogue spoke volumes regarding the showing success of this high-profile herd, reflected in the huge averages gained. It was the herd's successful show cow and Ronick Iceman daughter Newstart Upsydaisy that caused the biggest stir. Having racked up an impressive show career in 2007 which included championship tickets at the Royal, Royal Highland and Yorkshire, Cormack's mother Mary Beeney sold her Broomfield herd.
