Suc­cess at 126th sale of cat­tle

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

Top­ping the Highland cat­tle sale in Oban this week was An­gus Ruadh of Glen­gorm from past-pres­i­dent Tom Nel­son, Isle of Mull. Pic­tured is han­dler An­gus MacColl. An­gus Ruadh, who stood first in his class, was born on March 4, 2015, and heads to In­veri­nate Es­tate for 8,000 guineas. The fold from Glen­gorm also took 5,200 guineas for Archie Sauce of Glen­gorm, who stood sec­ond in the same class as An­gus Ruadh of Glen­gorm. Archie Sauce was pur­chased by Messrs Ste­wart of Lan­graw. The sale also made his­tory as it was the first time a fa­ther and daugh­ter pair­ing had led the judg­ing, with vet­eran Jimmy Laing as­sess­ing the an­i­mal classes and daugh­ter Helen Laing judg­ing the Young Han­dlers classes. The buy­ers on Mon­day were se­lec­tive but were pre­pared to pay good prices for the right cat­tle.
