With the demise of the Livestock Event at the NEC, this year’s Charolais
Youth stock judging national final was hosted the Society President Peter Donger
and his family on Saturday 1 July.
Charolais bulls met a ready trade with strong commercial
interest bolstering bull averages to £5158.13, an increase on last year of £151
with five more sold at Carlisle on Saturday 13th May.
A combination of pedigree and commercial interest saw
a solid trade of Charolais bulls at Stirling on Monday
1 May where 32 bulls sold to a top price of 8,500gns
and an average of £4,587, up
£312 on the year with clearance rates rocketing by 36% to 89%.
Peter Phythian has been appointed chief executive of the British Charolais Cattle
Society from 14 March. He succeeds David Benson who is retiring at the end of
March after 29 years.
