There might be the best part of half an hour to go before the Aberdeen-Angus bulls come under the hammer of David Leggat, but already the ringside is thronged with people eager to be here for the last ever sale of Angus bulls at Perth.

I’ve secured our usual spot at the top of the ring and will be throughout the sale to bring you the highlights of what promises to be a momentous day of trading with the Beef Shorthorns selling later too and Roly Fraser taking to the rostrum to officiate on them.
