At the Carlisle sale of Limousin bulls on Saturday 14th
October, John and Michael Fieldson of Gainsborough,
Lincolnshire, topped the sale with Fieldson Alfy, which sold for
Fieldson Alfy - 37,000 guineas
Fieldson Alfy, a March 2005 son of Gunnerfleet Plunas and out of
a Broadmeadows Cannon sired mother, was a certain eyecatcher he was
a bull with length, good legs and outstanding conformation.
Michael and John commented that Alfy was the the best bull they
had ever bred in the herd. He also lifted the pre-sale judging championship
award and was also a member of the winning Carlisle Three Award.
Alfy now goes to join the Netherhall herd based at Kirkby Lonsdale
for Nether Hall Farm ltd, Mansergh.
Following at 13,000gns was Bailea Amazon shown by the judge Brian
Jones and his son Matthew from Sennybridge, Brecon. Amazon is the
