Just has a wander round the show ring at the start of the Charolais judging to get a feel of what might sell well.
It’s obviously early days in terms of stock coming through the ring, but a few people have mentioned that the favourite has failed the vet inspection.
I’ve also seen there’s a full brother to the 70,000gns bull, Barnsford Ferny that sold at this time last year. Tom and Sheena Gatherer will be selling Barnsford Gorse which is by Balmyle Bollinger and out of Alwent Broom at the sale tomorrow. He has a TSI of +35 and a SRI of +41, this compares to +39 and +44 for his full brother, Ferny.
Time will tell whether he makes similar money…..
