O.B.B.A. Sale Report 2018

The 2018 Show and Sale was held on Wednesday 24th January when judge Mr Liam Muir, Upper Onston, Stenness, cast his eye of experience over the bulls forward for judging.

The auditorium at the Mart was packed when the sale commenced and there was keen local demand for quality bulls.

The Champion of the Limousin breed was shown and bred by Laga Farms Ltd, Evie. This May ’16 born bull, “Lagas Muscleman”, sired by “Norman Irish” and out of Lagas Crystal, left the ring unsold but was later sold “at the gate” for 2,500gns to Messrs J S & M H Hamilton, Gorn, Harray. The Reserve Champion Limousin, “Dounby Mack”, a homebred bull from Messrs Spence, Norton, Dounby, sold for 2,900gns to E Hourtson, Mucklehouse, Swannay.

The only Shorthorn bull eligible for judging was “Lagas Kevin”, shown by Laga Farms Ltd, Evie. Bidding fell short of the buyers reserve and he left the ring unsold.

Champion Aberdeen Angus was “Skaill Dudley”, an April `16 born bull, bred and shown by Messrs Davidson, Skaill, Sandwick. This bull was sired by Logie Politician and was out of dam, Skaill Diana. Bidding was brisk, and the bull sold for 3,500gns to Balfour Estates, Shapinsay. The Reserve Champion Aberdeen Angus “Skaill Legend”, was also bred and shown by Messrs Davidson, Skaill, Sandwick, but this bull failed to meet the vendors reserve and left the ring unsold.

Other leading Aberdeen Angus prices – Biggings, Toab 3,000gns; Messigate, Tankerness 3,000gns.

Champion Charolais out of a strong class of bulls, was “Baillieston Mark”, shown and bred by the Baillie family, Biggings, Toab. Baillieston Mark, born on 8th January, 2016, was sired by Maerdy Hasse and was out of dam Baillieston Fuchsia. After some brisk bidding he sold for 7,000gns to Messrs T & M Seatter, Hammer, Westray. The Reserve Champion, “Baillieston Major”, also shown and bred by the Baillie family, again created considerable interest and after some keen bidding, was knocked down for 6,200gns to
West Brough Farms, Sanday.

There were 2 Unregistered Simmental bulls forward for sale from Messrs Paterson, Veltigar, Tankerness. There was considerable interest in these bulls and they realised 4,500gns to Messrs Rosie, Quoybond, South Ronaldsay, and 3,800gns to Messrs Leslie, Lopness, Sanday.

Of the Aged bulls for sale, top price was £3,400 for a 3 year old Simmental, from
Messrs Dennison, Odiness, Stronsay to P & A Kemp, Huchaquoy, Swannay.

Other leading prices for Aged bulls – Norton, Dounby (Limousin) £2,300; Brockan, Stromness (Shorthorn) £1,300; Cauldhame, Stromness (Shorthorn) £1,320; Messigate, Tankerness (Aberdeen Angus) £1,650; Newbigging, Dounby (Aberdeen Angus) £2,000; Netherton, Holm (Aberdeen Angus) £1,900.
