2,200 gns top for Carlisle Simmentals

First in his class and reserve champion overall, Glebehill Nut, owned by father and daughter partnership RW and G Hudson, topped the bidding at the Annual Autumn Show and Sale of Simmental Bulls and Females at Carlisle.

Glebehill Nut the Reserve Champion from RW & G Hudson made the top price of 2,200gns

Nut travelled from Nottinghamshire and then on to Oxfordshire after he had been purchased by J Rixon Ltd. Out of a Yanley Maureen cow and by the Hudson's stock bull, Glebehill Just William, whosired four of the Glebehill Royal Show team, this 22 month old bull had a beef value SM 32.

The Champion Blakewell Nimbus from I & M Steele left the ring unsold

Bob Carter topped the females section with Gerrard Alice 2nd, a Slievenagh Fantastic first calver. She went southwards to Ecclesfield, Sheffield with Mr & Mrs Keen who hope to join the show circuit with her next year. A number of other buyers went home disappointed and a bigger draft of females must be the message for all vendors next year.

Averages: Bulls £1,436 (up £100 on last year) Females £906.50
