The Logie Durno flock export sale once again met a roaring demand for the Ingram family – William and Carole Ingram, sons Gregor and Bruce, and daughter Amy – of Logie Durno, Pitcaple, Inverurie, who teamed up with Harrison and Hetherington to produce an online sale of Charollais females.

Backed by home-bred genetics she is a daughter of Logie Durno Allstar and bred from a home-bred ewe. She stayed in Scotland with Messrs He Derson, Stirlingshire.
