While the Simmentals have been to the fore in the South of Ireland today, in Northern Ireland it was the British Blues which were centre stage at Moira. But, with our spy describing the show of bulls as not that great it is little surprise that they only reached a top of 3150gns.
Leading the prices was Chatham Falcon from J M Morrison and Son. This Paulern Verdi son is out of Chatham Bessy, a Railway View daughter and has a carcass yield index of +22.
Next best and not far behind at 3100gns was Lakeview Elite from Gary Beacom. This one is by Lakeview Charlie and out of Knockagh Unanimous, a Baron Di Blois Bauloye daughter.
And making 2850gns was another of the first prize bulls Shorefront Freddy from Frances O’Hare. This Greenfield Amzaon son is out of Bessy Bell Venus, a Visconti daughter.
Leading the female trade was Hillview Gail from Adrian Richardson. This Blak Du Baty D’Eprave daughter is out of Hill View Camilla, a Serum D’Anloy daughter.
A pair then traded at 1700gns, with the first being Kenny Veitch’s Drumlone Foxtrot. This Blak Du Baty D’Eprave daughter is out of Springhill Country Girl, a Twyning Ash Vaughan daughter. The other at this price was the female champion Droit Freda from Richard Mowbray. Sired by Cajoleur De Rettigny she is out of Droit Bonny, a Nonours De Wihogne daughter.
