Kevin Thomas has carried on the strong trade for senior Charolais bulls at Carlisle with Moelfre Canterbury taking a 5000gns bid. Another Doonally New son out of Moelfre Angharad he has a TSI of +30 and an SRI of +36.

Then also at that level was another Marwood bull, Marwood Colonel. By Coolnaslee Advocate and out of Marwood Treasure, he has figures of +31 and +31 again.

6000gns secured Ellerton Crocket from the Browns, this one is by Goldies Unbeatable and out of Ellerton Raphaela, a Simpsons Gregg daughter. His figures are +34 and +36 respectively.

Another 5000gns sale came for Caylers Crusader, a Maerdy Uniroyal son out of Caylers Olivia, a Killadeas Lloyd daughter.

But trading has now gone a tad sticky apparently and it seems buyers have made their choices and are sticking to them.
