Robert Burns the Competition at Stirling

Judge: Vince Corbett
Junior Judge:
Lois Scott

The Bank Holiday weekend of 1st-2nd May saw an excellent selection of bulls forward for the annual Spring Bull Sales at United Auctions, Stirling. The pre-sale show took place on the morning of the 1st May, overseen by judge Vince Corbett of the Teme herd and his Junior Judge Lois Scott. The sale then began in earnest on Monday 2nd May, seeing a total of 30 bulls sold with an 88% clearance and an average price of £5845 – up £230 on last Spring’s sale.

Glenericht Robert, sold for 14,000gns

Taking the top price of 14,000gns was class winner GLENERICHT ROBERT, bred by W K & P Drysdale of Blairgowrie, Perthshire. This impressive young 19-month-old was sired by Glenericht Mecca, who boasts an incredible +31.3 calving ease EBV. Meanwhile his dam is Glenericht Nimble, a daughter of the 15,000gns Maerdy Hwre. Robert caught the eye of W Dunlop & Sons, who will be introducing him to their herd in Dunbar, East Lothian.

Tonley Ranald, sold for 11,000gns

Reaching the next highest price of 11,000gns was another class winner: TONLEY RANALD from N A Wattie of Alford, Aberdeenshire. Ranald was born to Tonley Nancy, a Caylers Hustler daughter, and he was sired by the 30,000gns Silver Joss. At 23 months old, Ranald was among the oldest of the bulls forward for sale, but this did not deter the bidders. Coming out on top in the flurry of bids was Brailes Livestock, who will be taking Ranald home to Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire.

Glenericht Rambler, sold for 9,000gns

Coming in at the next highest price of 9,000gns was another from W K & P Drysdale – GLENERICHT RAMBLER. This young lad was sired by the Glenericht herd’s stock sire Caylers Oxford, who is a trait leader in several growth EBVs, and his dam is Glenericht Ibza, a daughter of Balthayock Graduate. Winning the bid and taking this 19-month-old home is R Leggat of New Pitsligo, Aberdeenshire.

Newlogie Realdream, sold for 8,500gns

Next up was NEWLOGIE REALDREAM from AJR Farms in Ellon, Aberdeenshire, who sold for a final price of 8,500gns. Realdream was sired by Maerdy Morwr, the Overall Charolais Champion at both the Royal Highland Show and the Great Yorkshire Show in 2021. Realdream also combines some French genes in his pedigree, with his dam Newlogie Ohdream being a daughter of the French Univers-Ra. Realdream will be making the trip to Maybole, Ayrshire, to the herd of winning bidder A Paton & Co.

Thrunton Ranger, sold for 8,000gns

The next highest price of 8,000gns was secured by 21-month-old THRUNTON RANGER from the herd of J H C Campbell & Sons in Alnwick, Northumberland. Ranger was sired by Thrunton Nevada, who is a trait leader in both 400- and 600-day weight EBVs, and his dam is Thrunton Laurel, a daughter of Thrunton Gladiator. This charming young lad was snapped up by DRF Farmers Ltd. of Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire.

Firhills Rex, sold for 7,000gns

Taking the next highest price of 7,000gns was FIRHILLS REX, a 17-month-old bred by D Muirhead of Arbroath, Angus. Rex has quite the lineage behind him, having been sired by former Carlisle Reserve Supreme Champion Caylers Napoleon. Additionally, his dam Firhills Bertha goes back to Moyness Statesman, who won Senior Male Champion at the Scottish National Charolais Show in 2005. Rex will be journeying over to Newburgh, Fife, under the care of winning bidder Logie Farm Partnership.

Thrunton Rampart, sold for 6,200gns

Selling for the next highest price of 6,200gns was THRUNTON RAMPART, another Thrunton Nevada son from J H C Campbell & Sons. Rampart’s dam is another Thrunton Gladiator daughter: Thrunton Layla. This young 17-month-old grabbed the attention of H Adamson & Son, who won the bid and will be taking him back to their holding in Newport-on-Tay, Fife.

The hammer came down three times for the next highest price of 6,000gns, firstly for GLENERNAN NORTHSTAR, sold by joint owners J H C Campbell & Sons of Alnwick, Northumberland and D A & S M Miller of Wigton, Cumbria. Northstar was born to Glenernan Fyne, a Mistral Ben daughter, and he was sired by the 17,000gns Elgin Jagger. Winning the bid and taking Northstar home is Kincraigie Farms of Lumphanan, Aberdeenshire.

Newlogie Recommend, sold for 6,000gns

Next to reach 6,000gns was class winner NEWLOGIE RECOMMEND, another Maerdy Morwr son bred by AJR Farms. Like his brother Realdream, Recommend’s dam Newlogie Opale also goes back to French bloodlines, being a daughter of Mannequin. This 20-month-old will be making the journey down to Rushden, Northamptonshire, to the home of winning bidder L D Carr & Partner.

Lochend Ralf, sold for 6,000gns

The final bull to sell for 6,000gns was LOCHEND RALF, a 17-month-old from the herd of J W Millar in Port of Menteith, Stirlingshire. Ralf was sired by the easy-calving Gretnahouse Ming, and his dam is Lochend Madge, a daughter of the popular AI sire Davally Illusion. I Dickson won the bid for this young lad, and he will be heading over to Scalpsie Farm in the Isle of Bute.
