New cen­tre record set by Clary Bel­tex

The Galloway News - - FARMING -

A New­ton Ste­wart farmer has smashed the record high live­stock price at Skip­ton Auc­tion Mart.

Jock McMil­lan, who runs the Clary flock at Carse of Clary, set a new bench­mark of 11,000gns (£11,500) at the Bel­tex Sheep So­ci­ety’s show and sale last week.

His home-bred ram lamb Clary Cos­mos ET also won the male cham­pi­onship.

Cos­mos is one of February-born triplets to the Bel­gium im­port Henry V/H/Vri­j­bos, out of Clary Wild Thing, Ayr show cham­pion in 2015 and her­self a well-bred daugh­ter of Clary Su­per­sonic.

He was sold to Bo­den and Davies of Mel­lor Hall Farm, Mel­lor, near Stockport.

Mr McMil­lan also sold a full brother to his supreme cham­pion, Clary Cracket, for 2,500gns to C Bir­rell and Co of Cas­tle Dou­glas.

The show was judged by Ian McCon­nell of Dum­fries.
