Trade peaked at 70,000gns and the total entry of bulls levelled at £7,018.27, up £914.10 on the year.

 

By Loosebeare Fantastic and out of Ampertaine Fancypants, Magnum is bred from the Kype Sharon family. April 2016-born, it caught the eye of Lancashire breeder J. Handley, Chapel Le Dale.

 

E.H. Pennie and Son, Powys, took 28,000gns for their intermediate victor and overall reserve champion, Sarkley Moray. April 2016-born and by Ampertaine Interest, it is out of Sarkley Hosanna and sold in two-way split to G. lee, Kidwelly, and A.H. and K.J. Booth, Aston.

 

Three exhibits left the ring at 20,000gns. The first was the March 2016-born Gorrycam Major, an Ampertaine Elgin son from Gorrycam Limousins, Co Down. Out of Gorrycam Dolly, the dam of the 28,000gn Gorrycam Hunter, it was snapped up by J. Mulholland, Great Orton, after winning its pre-sale show class.

 

Making the same was another class winner, June 2016-born Ballinloan Mountain, from S.L. Fotheringham, Dunkeld, who sold a half share to A.G. Howie, Peterhead, while retaining the other. By Ampertaine Foreman, Mountain was reserve inter-breed at Perth show earlier in the year.

 

The reserve junior championship went to R. and J. Graham, Bridge of Allan, with the June 2016-born Grahams Michael, another Elgin son out of Milbrook Gingerspice. The buyers were Messrs Ridley, Wigton, and E.W. Quick, Crediton.

 

Making 16,000gns to R.S. Harker and Son, Kendal, was Haltcliffe Matthew from Haltcliffe Limousins, Wigton, which is a Ducasse son out of Haltcliffe Hello.
