We are delighted to report that the January 2021 born pedigree Simmental heifer, Overhill House Mary, from Richard McCulloch, Overhill House, West Lothian, sold for a cracking £4000 at Caledonian Marts, Stirling, last Saturday, with all proceeds going to two charities helping children and refugees from the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

Heading to Ayrshire, Overhill House Mary, sired by Aultmore Goliath, and out of Islavale Caitlin, was purchased by Messrs Smith, Low Bow Hill Farm, Newmilns.

With some outstanding and varied lots forward from farmers and local businesses, the auction held by Caledonian Marts saw all funds raised going to UNICEF’s campaign to Help Protect Children in Ukraine, and for Central Plains Group, a regenerative farming business with operations in Ukraine who are raising funds to help refugees streaming into Western Ukraine from Kiev and East Ukraine.

Again well done to Richard McCulloch for putting this quality heifer forward for such a worthy auction, and a big thank you is extended to the Smiths for their purchase. We’ll be keeping an eye on Overhill House Mary and trust that she goes on to breed well at her new home.
