Charolais prices soar to a top of 4,800gns at autumn show.

Charolais cattle soared to 4,800gns for a North-bred bull at the breed society's official autumn show and sale in Welshpool last Thursday.

The day's leader was Brampton Tiger, an 18-month-old from British Charolais Cattle Society president, Billy Turner, of Skelton on Ure, Ripon, who was making his debut at the autumn event.

Sired by Bassett Pearlyking and out of a homebred cow, Tiger sold to Elfyn Owen, Talybont on Usk, Brecon, to run between the family's six pedigree cows and 140 cow suckler herd.

"Tiger caught our eye in the ring due to his length, top line and hind quarter muscling, bone and cleanness through the neck," he said.

"We've already tried and tested Brampton bulls and they've helped to keep our suckled calves in the day's top 5pc of market averages."

Bids were flying at a packed ringside resulting in a total of 58 lots sold, from an entry of 68 lots, to level at an average pounds 2,107.

"The Charolais fixture at this centre continues to grow from strength to strength," according to auctioneer, John Jones.
