Trade has hit a stronger vein here at Carlisle with a 6000gns securing Greenwell Davidoff from the Natress family (lot 167). This is by Tanin and out of Greenwell Vogue a Ronick Member daughter. He came with a beef value of +29.

And at 4800gns was Breconside Duke. Again by Kaprico Atlas this one is out of Breconside Alice, another by Newhouse Sugar. He has a beef value of +25 and sold to John Caunsel.

Meanwhile word has reached me that the senior champion, Nebo Director heads to a new home at Stirling with the Dick family for their Ronick herd.

Selling at 4000gns was Rainbow Dunkirk, a son of Springwood Vino out of Rainbow Unanimous, a full sister to Rainbow Simon, stock bull at Loosebeare. This sold to the Potter family, Hannem.

Bulk buyers of the day today are the Crofters Commisson, eager to source a ruck of bulls following this week’s news from the Scottish Government would continue to fund the bull hirs service run by the commission for crofters in the north of Scotland.
