Sale of pedigree Highland cattle – Oban - 8 March 2021
Oban’s premier sale of pedigree Highland cattle saw a top of 10000gns with increased averages throughout. The sale, which was held whilst adhering to COVID-19 regulations, allowed buyers from throughout the UK, as well as Germany, to bid on a tremendous show of quality animals, either in person ringside in Oban, via telephone or even via United Auctions’ online bidding facility, proved greatly popular with both purchasers and sellers alike.
Leading the trade was the much admired two year old bull, Cameron of Sguir Mor from local breeders and first time consignor in his own right, Willie MacLean at 10000gns. This stylish son of the famous Tanya 3rd of Mottistone and by the proven sire Eoin Mhor 18th of Morristone, found a new home with ne breeder Ewen McMillan, Lurg, Fintry for his Luraha fold and Dexter Logan and Carolyn Ross for their Blairlogan fold.
Following on from this at 7000gns was Ruairidh 2nd of Glengorm. This promising young bull by Craigowl 7th of Glamis Castle an out of a prolific dam line of Furan Gun Diul 11th of Glengorm sold to N & J McQuiston, High Airyolland, New Luce, Newton Stewart.
Next in the money was Ewan Mackay who had a great day’s trading selling his two entries for 6500gns and 5000gns. Leading the way was the cracking yellow bull Stan of Glengoyne who is by the consistent stock sire Ileach Mor of Glengoyne and out of the homebred Roidheach Ruadh 5th of Glengoyne who caught the eye of local breeders at Kilchoan Management Estate.
The next from this same home and by the same sire making 5000gns was Dubh-Sh*th of Glengoyne who goes to Mull to join Tom Nelson’s Glengorm fold.
Yearling bulls witnessed an extremely buoyant trade throughout and saw a new yearling bull record set of 5000gns for the eye-catching Fear-a-Bhata of Achnagoul consigned by long time stalwart of the breed Angus Mackay. This bull displays an international pedigree being sired by Carpenter Ruadh vom Augustenhof and out of Crystal 12th of Broomrigg who was by the ever successful Jock of Inversnaid. This up and coming young bull found a new home with Ewan Mackay’s Glengoyne fold where he will be junior stock bull.
Aged bulls sold to a high of 4000gns for Alan Prentice’s senior stock bull Alasdair 4th of Douglas who has already proven himself within the Hyndford fold and caught the eye of the Nairn family for their Balnabroich fold.
Highlight of the female trade at 3000gns was the stylish three year old heifer from Jon and Queenie Strickland’s Cladich fold, Frangag 2nd of Cladich. This sweet black heifer is out of senior stock bull Campbell of Tilbouries and travels to new owner Hendrik Hoog, Germany who continues a long support of the Oban Highland cattle sales.
Next in the females was Kirsty 14th of Craigowmill from breeders Ken & Eva Brown. This strong three year old heifer displays an eye catching pedigree going back to previous Oban champion Russell of Balure and being sired by Ruaridh 1st of Ubhaidh finds a new home with PA & S Smith, Stockley Hill Farm, Hereford.
Leading the yearling heifers was young breeder Emily Armstrong from Tiree with her consignment from the family’s Balemartine fold. Topping at 1300gns was the stylish Seonaig Dhudh of Balemartine which goes back to the much admired Seonaig of Applecross female line and goes to John Cooper, Tordarroch fold.
