Reserve champion and top price Brynffanigl Math at 6,400gns

Trade peaked at 6,400gns, paid for the reserve champion Brynffanigl Math from Bob and Huw Roberts, Clwyd.

 

The 13-month-old is by the 22,000gns Newhouse Bigal and out of the home-bred dam Brynffanigl Fion.

 

The bull stayed local selling to Arthur Williams, Clwyd, for his 120-strong suckler herd.

 

Next, a 6,000gns bid was made for the day’s champion from Gareth Jones, Gwynedd. Born in December 2015, Esgob Lionking is a son of Blelack Digger and its dam is sired by the 26,000gns Carlisle junior champion Anside Excalibur. The buyer was T.W.A. Jenkins, Ceredigion.

 

Sharing the same price was 21-month-old Maerdy Llawes which was snapped up by D.S. Tudor, Clwyd. By the 26,000gns Maerdy Hearthrob and out of Maerdy Happiness, it was bred and exhibited by Esmor Evans, Flintshire.

 

Dan Harman, Buckinghamshire, also had a profitable day selling two lots both sired by the 12,000gns Wesley Equinox. The highest priced at 5,600gns was Silver Montecristo, a 14-month-old which was bought by M. Griffiths and Co, Gwynedd. M. Jones, Lledrod, paid 5,400gns for the 15-month-old Silver Maximus.

 

Mr Evans was in the money again later in the sale with his February-2016 born class winner, Maerdy Mastermind.

 

A son of the French bred Maerdy Gouverneur, it found a new home with J.R. Jones, Caernarvon, Gwynedd for 5,300gns.
