Father and son duo, Peter and Alan Drysdale, had a field day at the Charolais show at the Stirling Bull Sales, winning their first supreme overall with a bull from their Glenericht herd.

The duo from Middle Drimmie, Blairgowrie, bagged the top ticket with Glenericht Oasis, selected by the judge and Farming Life star, Raymond Irvine, Tomintoul.

"He stood out throughout the show for his style and presence, with good legs and locomotion. He is everything a breeder would be looking for in a modern day, easy fleshing Charolais," said Mr Irvine.

Oasis, a May 2018-born bull is sired by Caylers Gladiator, a bull purchased at Carlisle for 12,000gns, and out of Glenericht Gem, a former red ticket holder at the Royal Highland Show. His full brother, Majestic sold for 11,500gns in 2017.

Taking home the blue and white sash was the junior champion, Elrick Outlaw from Michael and Lisa Massie, Mains of Elrick, Auchnagatt, Ellon.

"It was a close call, but my reserve also showed strong style and width being correct throughout. He had a level and equal top and bottom line," added Mr Irvine.

This August 2018-born bull is a son of the privately purchased Maerdy Gouverneur, while his dam, Elrick Florida, bred the overall champion here in October 2017 and has previously bred sons to 8500gns.

Elgin Oliver took the top spot among the intermediates for Matthew Milne, Kennieshillock, Lhanbryde. This June 2018-born bull is a son of the 10,000gns Woodpark Elgin, whilst his dam is from one of the best breeding lines in the herd, out of Elgin Ianthe, which goes back to Elgin Davinci, a bull sold privately for £20,000.

The female champion came from Archie and John MacGregor, Allanfauld, Kilsyth, Glasgow, in their July 2018-born heifer, Allanfauld Ozzy. This is the first female for sale from the 10,000gns Allanfauld Lachie, and out of Allanfauld Gaga, which goes back to Allanfauld Vagabond.

The sale is set to kick off tomorrow, Tuesday 16, 2020, at 10.30am at United Auctions Stirling.
