Perth Show and Sale
The Perth Sales saw Simmental show the greatest improvement of all the major breeds present, both in terms of the number of bulls sold and the quality of stock on offer. For all that, there would have been disappointment for a number of breeders as the whole week was significantly oversupplied.
Congratulations are due to Hector Macaskill in securing the Championship with Woodhall Manhattan as part of an all round good sale, and to John Young for achieving the highest price of 8000gns for Skerrington Machoman.
It was a welcome trend to see better trade for the Senior bulls than the younger offering. Little difference was apparent in quality, but the move towards younger purchases has caused concerns about the very immature age at which some bulls may be expected to work.
