Balthayock President – Catalogue No. 274.
President’s sire Echo has been a huge success at Balthayock and has sired many high priced sons sold into pedigree and commercial herds. Ferdinand is the sire of the 50/- guinea Justice and the 46/- guinea Minstrel. His daughter Melissa was a 2019 RHS prize winner and a member of the Charolais interbreed team. I think very highly of this young bull who has real potential as a sire in a pedigree herd.
