65,000gns new record leads Beltex Premier Sale

Last week’s Beltex Premier Sale, Carlisle, saw a top call of 65,000gns lead the trade and set a new breed record, surpassing the 60,000gns mark set at the same sale two years ago.

Setting the new record was Airyolland Castro from Newton Stewart-based breeders Neale and Janet McQuistin’s Airyolland flock.

One of more than 1700 Beltex catalogued for the Society’s largest UK sale to date, Castro is by the homebred Airyolland Asulam out of Airyolland Tramp, a Corstane Max daughter.

Paying the new record price were Paul and Christine Tippetts, Shifnal, Shropshire, for their Hackney and Wilodge flocks, with the same buyers responsible for the breed’s previous best price.

Commenting on their record setting achievement Neale McQuistin said it was a dream come true. “Janet has returned to work on the farm full time in the last few years and that has allowed us to give a lot more attention to detail in the breeding programme of our Beltex flock. This has resulted in the breeding of Airyolland Castro who has matured into a tremendous shearling ram and is from a homebred bloodline, being by Airyolland Asulam”

Buyer Paul Tippetts said he and his wife, Christine, had been drawn to Airyolland Castro as he is a Beltex tup with size, shape and character. “He provides new bloodlines in our genetic pool and will enhance our breeding policy.”

Second best of the sale at 15,000gns was Black Jack Casanova from Ross and Kirsty Williams, Aberdeenshire. This son of Padkin Sugar Daddy is out of a Callacrag dam by Clary Navy and sold in a two-way split to Messrs Hall, Carlisle, Cumbria, and the McQuistin’s who were reinvesting some of their earnings.

Then at 14,000gns was another tup sold in a two-way split, Ardstewart Coyote from Wade and Alison McCrabbe, Northern Ireland. This son of Langlands Trojan is out of Ardstewart Skinderella, a Broughton Pound Stretcher daughter and sold to Messrs Whiteford, Brampton, Cumbria, and Messrs Little, Carlisle, Cumbria.

Following that in the shearlings was a 9000gns call for Broughton Charmer from A and M Dunlop. This son of Skiddaw View Trapper is out of a Woodies Ringleader daughter and sold to Messrs Owen, Conwy, and Messrs Lewis, also Conwy.

Taking a 7200gns call was Fronarth Casanova from Sion Jones. Sired by Balbrydie Winston he is out of a DuMont Des Alouttes daughter and was the pick of the Harbinson family, Limavady, Northern Ireland.
