Dungannon Charolais hit 5800gns

Charolais met a steady demand, selling to 5800gns at the Northern Ireland Charolais Club's official November show and sale at Dungannon last week.

Heading the trade at 5800gns was the male and supreme champion Fymore Glory, a 14-month-old from S McCaughey, Augher, County Tyrone. By the 18,000gns Fury Action and out of a home-bred dam, he was knocked down to V McErlain, Armoy, County Antrim.

The second highest bid of the day was made by Dumfriesshire-based M Barr, Crocketsford, who paid 5400gns for the 16-month-old Derryharney Gentleman, from Harold Stubbs and AA Burleigh, Lisnaskea, County Fermanagh. Sired by the 10,000gns Perth champion Thrunton Bonjovi, he is out of a home-bred cow.
