Charolais met a dynamic trade in Stirling on Tuesday 22 February at the breed society’s official spring sale

Charolais met a dynamic trade in Stirling on Tuesday 22 February at the breed society’s official spring sale where bidding peaked at 45,000gns to achieve a new centre all breeds record; 16 lots sold for five figure sums and 166 lots traded for £5,888,

Sale leader at 45,000gns was Maerdy Express, a 15 month old within the breed’s top 1% with a TI +46 and SRI +54. Sired by Maerdy USA, he was the first calf out of Maerdy Puff whose sire, Maerdy Sinndar goes back to the renowned Major, and her dam to the celebrated show champion, Maerdy Empress. Bred and exhibited by Flintshire vet, Esmor Evans, Mold she was knocked down sold to Charlie Boden, of the Boden and Davies partnership, Mellor, Stockport who was making his second significant investment in Charolais within five years having secured the Perth supremo, Thrunton Voldemort in a two way split with Esmor Evans for 55,000gns. “Express will be extremely complementary to our Voldemort daughters, he’ll add a bit of finesse on to their calves,” he said.

Sale top price "Maerdy Express" - 45,000 gns from Esmor Evans
