Crook Hill Mr Bishampton V026 Tops Carlisle Aberdeen-Angus Sale:
In what is becoming an unprecedented times for shows and sales, a small but quality offering of Aberdeen-Angus bulls saw a high of 3,000gns at H&H, Carlisle Autumn Pedigree Bull Sale on Friday 2nd October 2020, with two bulls finding new homes to average £3045.
The top price bull on the day was April 2019 born bull Crook Hill Mr Bishampton V026 from Dr William & Margaret Taylor. Mr Bishampton is out of homebred cow Crook Hill Miss Bishampton T014 and by the famous Australian sire Te Mania Berkley B1 (AI) (IMP).
Following closely behind was Christopher D Timm with his April 2019 born bull Wensleydale Jedi Eric V130 which sold for 2,800gns. Jedi Eric is out of homebred cow Wensleydale Janet Erica S046 and by Netherallan Peter Pershore E052 (ET) son, Blelack Ensign L796 (ET).
It was a very different place to the normal sale days with strict protocols in place to keep people distanced at two meters. A quiet sale ring with only buyers in attendance saw through the lots of bulls in quite a surreal environment but given everything that’s going on it was a welcome return to the live sale ring for pedigree cattle.
Averages: 2 bulls £3045, 50% clearance
