The second black bull of the day from the Emslies team, Emslies Black Enigma, another son of 25,000gns sire Bailea Black BMW, out of Ballymoney Violet has just caused a stir ringside. Half brother to the new black record holder this one sold at 6800gns.

A red ticker holder from Netherhall, Sympa son Netherhall Epic (378) then went on to make 12,000gns. He is out of Montgomery Vixon, a Lasso daughter and sold with a beef value of +39. And sold to Ros Goulding, Ireland.

And, following that was Redrock Eros (lot 384), this Haltcliffe BMW son out of Croftlimousin Skye sold at 5800gns.

The last of the day Pyebrook Empire (lot388), a Saunders Stallone son out of Breconside Una then sold at 5000gns.

And that wraps up the trade here today, overall 149 bulls sold to level the day at £5479.46 through the ring. A good solid average, although there were a few turned away not sold at prices which perhaps should have been taken, but then every vendor has different priorities.
