The increase in demand for Simmental Bulls continued this week at the Perth Multibreed Sale on 1st May 2006, when 19 of the 21 bulls forward found new homes selling to a top of 3000gns twice.

Firstly, Henry & Susan Widdicombes’ long journey from Ashprington Court, Totnes, Devon was justified when Starline Revelation, a son of Blackford Hawk, sold to G. Christie, Midtown of Glass, Huntly, then Lindsay and Dorothy Moffat,Innerwick, Dunbar, then matched this when Innerwick Ross, a son of Gortin Larry, sold to W L S Muir, Midhouse, Corrigall Harray, Orkney.

The Society President, John Dykes, Mendick Lea, West Linton, sold a Hockenhull Matthew son, Mendick Ringmaster, for 2800gns to join Gerald & Morag Smith’s Drumsleed Herd at Fourdoun, Laurencekirk.

Judge Willie Brown, Laigh Drumdow’s Sale Champion, Tillylair RAF was exhibited by I.A.Hunter, Tillylair Farms, Lumphanan, Banchory and sold to W.I.Moncrief, Berryhill, Easter Fowlis, Dundee for 2600gns. He was matched by another bid of 2600gns by A. Malcolm & Son, Wester Coilechat, Callander, when he purchased Glenturk Romeo by Whitemire King Kong, from Brian Allan’s, Glenturk herd at Newtown Stewart. R & P McAllister, Langalbunioch, Argyll, sold two sons of Woodhall Klinsman for 2500gns. Firstly Bruchag Randy Boy sold to A. Currie, Birchburn, Skiskine, Arran, followed by Bruchag Robbie, who sold to W. Wybar, 4 Ballyfunning Cres., Balfron Station, Glasgow. The Widdicomes’ also realised a bid of 2500gns for another Hawk son when they sold Starline Renown to Bolfracks Farms, Aberfeldy.

Fiona Sloan, the Breed Development & Promotions Manager for the Society said, “All of the recent sales have seen a huge increase in demand for Simmental Bulls. The change to the Single Farm Payment means that farmers need easy to manage cattle which mature quickly and many see the Simmental as the way forward”
