Heifers go for higher prices than bulls for first time as Britain's most expensive cow breaks record

  • It used to be just bulls that sold for hundreds of thousands of pounds at cattle auctions, with their female counterparts rarely at the centre of bidding wars. But now a Limousin heifer called "Wilodge Poshspice" has changed everything, after smashing the record to become Britain's most expensive cow, selling for £262,000. Breakthroughs in IVF methods mean heifers are no longer looked down upon by breeders, as they can now potentially have hundreds of offspring as opposed to just a handful of calves born naturally. As such, their value has soared. Prior to the scientific breakthroughs, it was down to the bulls to do the heavy lifting, by inseminating as many heifers as possible – making them the stars of auctions. The record breaking fee – double the previous record for a female Limousin cow – was settled at an auction in Cumbria, following a fierce bidding war between rival breeders keen to get their hands on her prized genetic make-up. Poshspice's embryos can now be sold for several thousands of pounds each to dozens of other breeders for artificial insemination in their own herd, in the hope the cows will produce equally good progeny. The sum fetched at Borderway Mart in Carlisle not only doubled the £131,250 record set in 2014 for the Limousin heifer Glenrock Illusion, but also far exceeded the record £147,000 paid for the Limousin bull Trueman Jagger in October 2015.
