Knocked down at 50,000gns, it was the pick of Northern Irish breeders Gilbert Crawford, Londonderry, and Joe Wilson, Co Down.

The May-2015 born Balthayock Ferdinand son was reserve overall at Kirriemuir Show and reserve overall and junior inter-breed at Perth. Its paternal grand-dam Balthayock Rosita is the top figure cow in the breed.

Averages were up by £431, with 80 Charolais levelling at £7,085 and a 66 per cent clearance.

Big money

Also making big money and selling to Redhead and Watson, Berwick, and the Campbell family, Alnwick, was the 18-month-old Maerdy Jerusalem from Esmor Evans, Mold.

Securing 28,000gns, it is by the 10,000gns bull Blelack Fabulous, which was reserve senior champion at Stirling and has sold sons for 22,000gns.

Next was the overall and intermediate champion, the 18-month-old Castellmawr Jacpot from Alwyn and Medwyn Williams, Gwynedd.

The pick of Lanarkshire’s Colin Wight for 16,000gns, it was junior and male champion at this year’s Royal Welsh and is the first son sold off the €7,000 (£5,140) Goldstar Gentleman.

Another Gwynedd breeder, this time Will Owen, saw success, selling the senior champion Deunawd Jeff for 13,000gns, to D. and R. Durno and Sons, Ballindalloch.

Out of the privately purchased 15,000gns Allanfauld Chieftan, it was male and overall champion at the breed’s national show this year.

Class winner

Hartlepool’s Neil and Kirsty Blyth’s 18-month-old class winner Marwood Journal secured a 11,500gns bid from O.T.W. Chandler, Abergervenny. It was breed and part of the inter-breed champion pairs at the Great Yorkshire Show.

Wallace Brown, Kilmarnock, paid 12,000gns for the 17-month-old Elrick Juno from Michael Massie, Ellon. Its sire Thrunton Fearless was champion at Stirling when purchased for 16,000gns.

Three then levelled at 10,000gns, with Gilbert Crawford this time inside the ring selling the first prize April 2014-born Deeleview Jonathan to Graystoke Castle, Penrith.

Next came another first prize winner, the 19-month-old Thrunton Javelin from the Campbell family, knocked down to J. Campbell, Thurso.

Last was Aboyne’s Neil Massie with Blelack Jigsaw, a May 2014-born Caylers Hustler son, with Fife’s Balbirnie Home Farms the buyer.
Females

An ET maiden heifer from the reduction sale of E.J. and A.M. Fox, Biggar, was highest priced female. Going under the hammer at 6,000gns, Tillside Jessie sold to Brailes Livestock, Oxfordshire.

Another from Tillside, this time the November 2013-born Icon, went home to Aberdeen with R. and N. Barclay.

The February-2012 born Caithness Isla, from D. and M. Campbell, Lybster, then made 4,400gns, selling to Ian Goldie, Dumfries.
