We had a successful day at the October bull sale with all our bulls finding new homes. It was particularly pleasing that two of them went to pedigree herds and we will look forward to seeing their progeny in the show and sale ring in the future. Johnny Irvine bought Balthayock Maestro a class winner and full brother of last year’s October junior champion Balthayock Loyalist, and Dan Harman bought the high figured Balthayock Musketeer for his Chesham herd. We wish all our buyers the best of luck with their investment in the Balthayock bulls.

Time flies and already the next team of bulls has been entered for the Stirling February sale. I think they are a strong team with the emphasis on easy calving combined with high growth rate EBVs. The notes below will be included in the catalogue and nearer the sale Catherine McGregor as usual will take their photographs for this web page.
