Having made the long trip home last night Taking Stock can now bring you the highlight of the Charolais sale at Perth yesterday – Bill Bruce’s Balmyle Bollinger.

Unfortunately, by the time this bull made his way into the sale ring we’d made a run for home, but left our trusty photographer there to capture the action – thankfully, we’d had a tip off early in the day that this was the bull to watch.

By Dingle Hofmeister and out of Balmyle Tinsle who traces back to Maerdy Othello, Bollinger was bought in a four-way split by the Milne family, Elgin, the Irvines, Ballindalloch, Martin Irvine, Drummuir, and the Stevensons, Anstruther.
