The champion (lot 96) from Donald Biggar Chapelton Alamo – homebred on both sides has gone at 3000gns.
Second and reserve overall Colnvalley Aladdin from the McMillan family has followed but failed to sell at 2500gns. This bull was junior interbreed champion at this year’s Royal Show and is homebred on both sides.
Earlier to that was another from the same string, one of my picks from teh Shorthorn line ups – Colnvalley Zodiac. By Uppermill Ling out of Tofts Ruby he went at 7000gns to Campbell Graham.
Now continuing with usual sale proceedings lot 91 – Alvie Archibald from Mr and Mrs Williamson has gone at 4200gns to Craigie Farms. He is by one of Christopher marler’s stock bulls Wavendon War Emblem.
