Trade is continuing to be largely steady among the Beltex here at Carlisle, but with some of the better pens coming in now some good prices have been achieved.
Selling at 9000gns was one of the picks of the sale for many, Broughton Pound Stretcher. This Corstane Mighty Max son is out of Broughton Magdalena, an Airyolland Kingsize daughter and sold to Messrs McCrabbe for the Ardstewart flock.Then at 5500gns was Dooley Pierre from David Thornley. This is by Clovis and out of Dun-Mor Kasey and had been breed champion at Great Yorkshire. I believe he sold in a two-way split to Brian Hall and Jock McMillan.Taking a 4800gns call was Tacherhill Perot from A McKay. This is an Airyolland Kingsize son out of Bishopton Kylie.Making 3600gns when selling to Bryan Ryder was Borderesk Power Point from Anne Story.
