The Limousin world record has been broken by a pedigree heifer named after one of the Spice Girls.

Wilodge Poshspice went for 250,000gns - double the previous record.

The record was broken at the reduction sale for Christine Williams and Paul Tippets of Lodge Hill Farm in Shifnal, Shropshire on January 29.

Christine said: “We are overwhelmed and equally delighted to have achieved this fantastic result with what is a great young heifer.”

Wilodge Poshspice is a November 2019 born embryo heifer.

Breaking records is in her blood, as she is out of Millbrook Gingerspice, who won supreme champion at the Balmoral Show three times in a row.

Poshspice promotes two sets of Q204X myostatin, whilst being both homozygous red and horned.

She is sired by well-known 32,000gns Ampertaine Elgin.

The British Limousin Cattle Society breed secretary Will Ketley said: "The society is delighted to offer its congratulations to the team at Wilodge for this incredible iconic achievement that marks a wealth of breeding over the decades."

Wilodge Poshspice was purchased in partnership by two renowned herds, Messrs Jenkinson, Whinfellpark Sportsmans herd in Penrith and Boden and Davies, Sportsmans herd in Stockport.
