    Limousin Cattle to 4,500gns at Carlisle

A trio of Limousin breeders consigned stock to a full ringside of buyers which saw a leading price tag of 4,500gns. The sale, on Friday 1st September, was made up of cattle from the Greenwell herd of JT & J Nattress & Son, Lanchester, also from the Ardbrack herd of M Gethin, Haverfordwest and from the Gunnerfleet herd of J & I Handley, Carnforth.

The top price went to Ardbrack Vintage, a 21 month old bull, sired by Broadmeadows Tombola and out of a Brontemoor Ilkley bred mother. Vintage carries a calving value of +5 and caught the eye of many breeders with his overall tremendous shape. He was successfully purchased by Andrew Ewing on behalf of a client.

Following with the Ardbrack herd, the next price tag was 4,000gns for Ardbrack Princesspatti a Broadmeadows Cannon daughter and her mothers line going back to Uplands Abba. Sold in calf to the renowned French sire Nenuphar, and with her Nenuphar sired heifer calf at foot, the outfit was bought by Smiths of Bloxham, Banbury.

Leading the Greenwell herd prices was Greenwell Onyx who sold for 4,200gns. Sired by Daim and out of a Greenwell Ike bred mother, Onyx sold with her January 2006 born Tiret bred heifer calf at foot. The unit was purchased by Smiths of Bloxham.

Also selling at 4,200gns from Greenwell was the French bred stock bull Tiret. He was knocked down to Maltas Farms Ltd of Driffield.

The Gunnerfleet consignment was lead by Gunnerfleet Arose who sold for 3,000gns. A daughter of Goldies Tony and bred from a Tunnelby Monkeytricks sired mother, Arose was bought by Mrs Ruth Stevenson of Howgill Foot, Kirkby Stephen.
