Another from Procters Farm, Procters Fluvio, another by Vermount has just gone at 4000gns. This is out of Procters Vanilla, a Sidney daughter and has a beef value of +34.

Trade is maintaining the patchy pattern established earlier in the day, with buyers bidding to a budget and only prepared to push on strongly for the best of their picks in the yard.

Next sale of merit was a good while later when Messrs Price sold Beulah Ferrari (lot 252) at 7000gns. This Glenrock Spartacus son is out of Beulah Daisy, a Rocky son and has a beef value of +19. He also heads to Northern Ireland with James Alexander.
