Blelack Charolais sell to a top of 30,000gns at the Stirling Autumn Sale

Charolais bulls were in demand at Stirling on Wednesday 19 October at the breed’s official autumn sale. 83 bulls sold to an average of £5,674 and topped at 18,000gns with a 63% clearance which is a satisfactory result for an autumn bull sale. The majority of beef suckler herds are spring calving and they are taking advantage of the fast growth rates of the Charolais bred calves so they can sell them at the autumn suckler calf sales. By doing so the calf producers are increasing their margins by reducing the over-wintering costs.

Leading the bids at 18,000gns was the reserve supreme champion Goldies Linford ET,

Top price Balthayock Justice with Breeder Major Walter and team and the proud new owners Gilbert Crawford and Joe Wilson

British Charolais met a solid demand from a packed Stirling ringside on Tuesday 20 October where prices peaked at 50,000gns and 80 entries sold through the ring to average £7,085 at the breed society’s autumn sale. Charolais once again remained dominant during the week’s multi-beef breed fixtures, by recording the highest number of bulls sold, highest average price and highest top price.

The Society Chairman Steven Nesbitt remarked that “the buyers are realising the necessity of a quality bull and are being quite selective due to the amount of good quality crossing bulls available that are able to produce fast finished calves for the current market place. Purchasers had a lot of faith in Charolais bulls for commercial beef production because the progeny have the ability to hit the target weights efficiently.”

He will make an excellent stock bull for both the Coolnaslee and Ballinlare herds”. The judge Andrew Hornall of Falleninch, Stirling, concluded that “Justice is a fantastic pedigree animal that has the attributes and efficiencies required for modern beef production, his figures reflect what is required for today’s commercial as well as pedigree market”.
