Breed secretary, Neil Shand said: “There is more money around than I expected, partly driven by the Simmental calf trade holding itself up. Eighty per cent of the bulls bought today will be used for producing replacement females.”
Leading the sale at 18,000gns was the overall reserve and junior champion Blackford Findhorn 14, from Billy and Anne MacPherson, Invernness.

The 18-month-old was junior champion at the Royal Highland and reserve beef breeder champion this year. It is sired by the 16,000gns Hockenhull Waterloo which is also father to the current 45,000gns breed record holder Bel Dhu Capercaillie 11.

Out of Silver Wells Bonnie, it was purchased by Gloucestershire’s Guy Van Der Gucht.

Another from the same pen secured 12,000gns, with Blackford Finch 14, full brother to Bel Dhu Capercaillie 11, going home with the Snaigow Family Partnership, Pethshire.

At 15,000gns was the intermediate champion, March-2014 born Ranfurly Formula 1 F7 14 from David and Jonny Hazelton, Dungannon. This year’s Northern Ireland male of the year, it is by Carnkern Titan and out South Park King Kong Weikel 2, which has bred nine show champions.

Its full ET brother, Ranfurly Talisman was Northern Ireland male of the year in 2009 and sold at Perth for 9,000gns.

Iain Green, Fochabers, sold a string of February 2014-born Bel Dhu Capercaillie 11-sired sons, with Corskie First Caper 14 realising 12,000 to Robinson Farms, Norfolk; Corskie Fin 15 at 7,000gns to G. McConnach and Sons, Aboyne, and the senior champion Corskie Fable 14, selling to Messrs Nicolson, Aberdeen.
