• The Highland Area Texel Sheep Club held their annual flock competition recently with Mr Brian Buchan, Clintert Farm, Aberdour, Fraserburgh, acting as judge.

  • THERE was another super strong line-up of young females vying for the SuperHeifer title at Wednesday's AgriScot.

  • ANOTHER record breaking entry of top quality beef calves from no fewer than nine different breeds was forward for the Stars of the Future Show at United Auctions, Stirling, last weekend, with the catalogue featuring 409 head from 147 exhibitors.

  • TAKING all the plaudits among the native seniors at the Stars of the Future and proving a hugely popular winner among the ringside was the previously unshown Beef Shorthorn heifer, Lintonpriory Millicent 5, a 15-month-old daughter of Stonehills Pearls Perfection from the Gordon Brooke Trust, managed by Kelso-based Johnny Elliot and brought out by freelance stockman, Drew Hyslop.
