November 11, 2016 Increased Demand for Charolais in Welshpool

More Charolais bulls were sold for a higher average price in Welshpool on Thursday 10th November than at the corresponding sale in the previous year. At the end of the day’s trading 36 bulls were sold to average £3856, an increase of £419 per head with 10 more sold.

Auctioneer Glandon Lewis commented that “Commercial producers underpinned the sale and were willing to pay between 4,000 and 6,000gns for the bull of their choice. This is a reflection of the commercial trade for Charolais bred cattle which are in demand by beef finishers who can exploit their efficient growth to meet the current market specification”.

Graiggoch Legend

Graiggoch Legend the top price at 6,500gns

Gerwyn Jones, Llanrwst, Conwy commanded the top prices of the day and the bidding peaked at 6,500gns for his March 2015-born bull Graiggoch Legend ET. TN Lightfoot, Callington, Cornwall was the purchaser of this class winner sired by the 70,000gns Royal Welsh supreme champion Barnsford Ferny and out of Northumberland-bred dam Thrunton Starband going back to the 25,000gns Perth supreme champion Mowbraypark Orlando.

Matching the 4,800gns price tag was a class winner from Brian and Peter Heath, Hartfield, East Sussex, who have recently been recognised by AHDB Beef & Lamb as the Most Improved Herd of Charolais cattle in England for 2016. Sackville Lancelot, a May 2015-born son of Thrunton Fairfax and home-bred Sackville Delilah who goes back to the Irish-born Kincullen Ted ET caught the eye of Mr Jones, Brecon, Powys.

4,800gns was also the price paid for the blue ticket winner Brynffanigl Lee, a 16 month old son of Blelack Digger and the 17,000gns Alsnow Almighty-sired Brynffanigl Ella. Lee was consigned by RT and DM Roberts, Abergele, Clwyd and purchased by R Jones & Son, Brecon, Powys.

Esgob Logo

Esgob Logo

Esgob Logo who stood second in his class is a full brother to Esgob Gold, a Royal Welsh Show junior champion and the 8,000gns Esgob Harry. DT Richards, Maesteg, Mid Glamorgan was the man behind the money on this 15 month old son of the 26,000gns Carlisle reserve supreme champion Anside Excalibur.

Female Section

Leading the bids for the females at a combined price of 4,000gns was an entry from Jeremy and Alla Price, Staunton-on Wye, the only cow and calf lot of the sale which was split to separate homes at 2,000gns a piece. Oakchurch Gem, a five year old daughter of Blelack Digger took the fancy of T Rich & Son, Mold, Flintshire and SJ Baker, Codsall, Staffordshire took home her nine month old bull calf Oakchurch Magic sired by the home-bred Oakchurch Igor.

Mr Rich showed his faith in the Charolais females as he also purchased the top priced and champion heifer from breeder Gareth Jones, Bala, Gwynedd.

November 9, 2016 Sackville herd wins Improved Herd Award for the Charolais breed

The Sackville herd, owned by father and son team Brian and Peter Heath from Hartfield in East Sussex, has been recognised by AHDB Beef & Lamb as the Most Improved Herd of Charolais cattle in England for 2016.

•Sackville Joey with Peter Heath, Angela Price representing Lodders presented Peter Heath with the red card won by Sackville Joey who sold for 4,000gn at Stirling 2015

The award is presented by the AHDB Beef & Lamb Better Returns Programme (BRP) to the recorded herd that shows the greatest genetic gain for commercial characteristics over a 12-month period. There is a separate award for each of ten UK breeds.

The Heath family have been at Culvers Farm since 1976. Brian and Peter look after the cattle together alongside Peter’s foot trimming business. They originally had a cross-bred suckler herd but were keen to develop their own pedigree herd of Charolais cattle and purchased five cows in May 1995 from the Warninglid Herd and one cow from the old Lamberhurst herd.

Through the use of artificial insemination (AI) they were able to access a number of high-index bulls from herds such as Blelack, De Crepigny, Maerdy, Dingle, Balthayock, and Doonally. Heifers have been retained from these bloodlines and the herd is maintained at around 15 breeding cows.

Peter said: “The herd has been performance recorded from the outset. We believe the figures help with management and breeding decisions, providing valuable information showing how our herd compares to others.”

Peter attends a number of local and national shows in order to promote his herd and the genetics available.

“Our cattle are regularly handled and the shows provide a valuable window for future sales” Peter said.

“Farming on clay land means our cows are housed over winter from November until the beginning of May, with the majority calving in the spring.

“We started selling through the pedigree sales in 2000 and we continue to sell a number of young bulls each year through the February and October sales at Stirling, Carlisle and Welshpool,” Peter explains.

“We sell mainly bulls and some surplus females are sold as in-calf or bulling heifers.”

Homebred Sackville Sapphire, a big strong cow with good estimated breeding values (EBVs), won the Royal Show in 2004. She produced a bull named Sackville Adonis who has gone on to sire many great bulls that have done very well. They have since flushed her to maximise her genetic potential within the herd.

“With the market conditions changing recently, the store cattle trade is lucrative,” Peter said “In my opinion, the breed’s size and growth rates backed up by EBVs mean the Charolais can command a premium within the store trade.”

Brian and Peter use EBVs to select for animals with superior growth rates, while maintaining ease of calving.

“Our customers are switched on and gain assurance from the figures behind the animals. There must always be a careful blend of using the figures to suit the management system while not ignoring the traits of the Charolais breed,” Peter concluded.

November 7, 2016 Commerical Demand for Charolais Calves & Store Cattle

picture-4-web

The fallacy that Charolais bred cattle cannot meet the current supermarket requirements has been well and truly exposed by the price and demand for Charolais calves and store cattle at the autumn round of suckled calf and store sales.

This is what the auctioneers had to say in Friday’s edition of the Scottish Farmer:
Alan Hutcheon – Cattle Auctioneer at Aberdeen and Northern Marts Thainstone Centre “The good news is that there is still a big demand for Charolais cross calves, which instead of being sold at the heavier weights of the past are now being cashed at lighter weights”. This was a point echoed by John Roberts, cattle auctioneer at United Auctions, Stirling. “Buyers still want Charolais cross calves because they are quicker to finish and the professional finishers will always seek out such cattle because they know they’ll get them away quicker by altering the finishing rations accordingly”. This fact was substantiated by Tom Wrench, Auctioneer at Rugby Farmers Mart who stated “there is a £100 premium for Charolais bred stores when taking the age of the cattle into consideration and up to £150 premium for Charolais bred calves under one year old”.


November 7, 2016 Dungannon Charolais sell to 5,100gns

Charolais cattle sold to a top price of 5,100gns at the Northern Ireland Charolais Club sale held in Dungannon on Friday 4th November. There were 27 bulls sold to an average of £3,290 which was an increase of £362 on the year with five more sold.

Maghera breeder Gilbert Crawford came up with the goods bagging the top prices of the day and reserve championships in the senior and junior bull sections to boot. Top of the lots at 5,100gns was the reserve junior male champion Coolnaslee Lyle. Sired by the Highland Show interbreed junior beef champion Goldstar Hugo2 and out of the homebred dam Coolnaslee Evadne going back to the Balmoral Show beef interbreed bull performance award winner Sandelford Bergkamp, this 16 month old caught the eye of Messrs J McKeagney, Maghera, Co Derry.
