Maraiscote Regie heads up Stirling at 9000gns

AFTER a busy weekend at Carlisle, Stirling was home to the second society Limousin bull sale of the Autumn. Bulls from 26 of the top herds across Scotland came together to offer their animals under the hammer. Averaging £5,085, demand was strong with an increase of £603 on the same sale in October 2019.

After a very successful weekend in Carlisle, the Nimmo family headed north with their team of bulls for the Stirling sale.

Topping the sale at 9000gns was Maraiscote Regie, an April 2020-born son of the 50,000gns Bassingfield Machoman, who goes back to the 32,000gns Millgate Fame. Out of the homebred cow Maraiscote Jellybean, Regie carries myostatin of F94L and Q204X and a beef value of LM47, placing him in the top 10 per cent of the national herd.

Regie was crowned overall champion and junior champion after winning his class in the pre-sale show under judge Alistair Vance of the Bridgehouse herd, based in Newton Stewart.

After a keen bidding frenzy, Regie was knocked down to the Turville herd, now calling Aylesbury home with H B Lear.

The second highest price of the day was 8500gns, paid for Newhouse Rambo from R M Adam and Son, Forfar, Angus.

This March 2020-born Westhall Jammy sired bull is bred out of the homebred cow Newhouse Joops, a daughter of the 10,000gns Millington Ferrari. Rambo carries two copies of the F94L myostatin gene and a beef value of LM57, placing him in the top one per cent of the breed. Rambo now calls Perth home with T Howden’s commercial herd.

Bangtidy Ralphlauren also went under the hammer for 8500gns, brought forward for sale by Andrew Hyslop, Stirling.

The January 2020-born son of the 35,000gns Ampertaine Foreman, this is the first calf to be sold out of Ironstone Madam. Carrying two copies of the F94L myostatin gene, he also is in the top 10 per cent of the breed with a beef value of LM48. Ralphlauren caught the eye of the Mclaurens herd, now calling Angus home with new owners Messrs W McLaren.
