PHOTO: PGG WRIGHTSONA six-week-old heifer calf from North Otago's Busybrook Holsteins is believed to have set a New Zealand record, selling for $35,000. He believed the price paid for Busy Brook Doorman Hailstorm - the first lot offered - would be a New Zealand record for a dairy calf. Nathan and Amanda Bayne imported some embryos and Busy Brook Doorman Hailstorm was the only heifer from the flush. There was plenty of interest in the calf prior to the sale and it was bought by the well-known Sherriff family of Sherraine Holsteins from Ohoka, Canterbury.
