Michael Massie’s Elrick herd has sold well with Elrick Cassius making 7000gns to Mr Morris, Tay. Cassius is by Blelack Roger and out of Blelack Phelia and has a terminal sire index of 29.
Trade for the lower end of bulls though is definitely not here and buyers are rightly buying only those they believe will leave quality calves.
Just a few lots later and John Jeffrey was looking to recoup some of his earlier outlay with Kersknowe Chief coming under the hammer. Again by Talisman, Chief sold with a terminal sire index of 18 at 9000gns to Mr Jack, Woodend.
A few later again and Michael Massie is back in the ring with another, Elrick Casanova. Again by Blelack Roger this one sold at 4000gns.
John Jeffrey sold again immediately afterwards, taking a 6000gns bid from pedigree Charolais and Suffolk breeder John Christie, West Carse, for Kersknowe Clansman. This one was by Melfre Viscount and out of Kersnowe Tessa, a Kersknowe Ravissant daughter.
