Goldies Champion sets off Stirling Charolais trade

Senior bull Goldies Champion, bred by Hamish Goldie and forward today from Matt and Craig Ridley, Hesket-Newmarket, Cumbria, was first in the ring here today at Stirling.

This Goldies Uppermost son is out of Kinclune Pipper, a Killadeas Legend daughter and was bought by the Ridleys from Carlisle for 28,000gns in May 2009. He sold with a TSI of +39 and an SRI of +46, although his calving figures have been a topic for discussion on Taking Stock in recent days. He was knocked down at 5500gns to Robert McWilliam, Stranagone Farms, Northern Ireland.goldies champion.jpgThere’s been little else of note in the first dozen or so lots…
