May 16, 2016 Charolais judge goes for the Jugular at Carlisle

Charolais met a strong commercial demand with 67 bulls selling to an average of £5,007 and peaking at 14,000gns at the Carlisle Spring Charolais sale on Saturday 14 May.

Commenting on the sale the BCCS chairman Steven Nesbitt said, “The quality Charolais cattle forward of good conformation and correctness were readily sold. The feedback from the commercial suckled calf producers is that calving ease and efficient growth are of paramount importance and the growth rates and the inherent value of the Charolais bred heifers is being realised as a bonus to increase margins from beef production”.

Leading the bids at 14,000gns was the 17 month old Goldies Joss TI +72 SRI +65. Joss was purchased by William and James Causey, Cookstown, Co Tyrone and was bred and exhibited by Hamish Goldie, Ruthwell, Dumfries-shire. He is sired by the 15,000gns Gretnahouse Heman and out of the homebred dam Goldies Dignity who goes back to the 30,000gns Dingle Hofmeister.
