The clearance rate was 65%.

Leading the day’s trade at 10,000gn was the reserve overall and intermediate champion from Dougie McBeath and Sarah-Jane Jessop, Lower Greenyards, Bannockburn.

This was for Ironstone Oliver, an 18-month-old bull by Ironstone Gandi, out of the 22,000gn Brockhurst Batik.

He was knocked down to Paul and Christine Tippetts of the Wilodge herd at Shifnal, Shropshire.

Doug and Lynda Graham, together with sons John and James, from Mains of Burnbank, Stirling, sold their senior champion for 9,000gn to Messrs Glass and Smith, Mill of Fowlis, Alford.

This was Burnbank Ollymurs, a 20-month-old son of Mereside Lorenzo, out of Burnbank Grace.

The next three top prices came from breeders in the north of the country, including the reserve senior champion from the Davidson family – Richard, Kathleen, and children, Richard and Rachael – from Corsairtly, Keith.

Selling for 8,000gn to the Simpson family, Mains of Creuchie, Blairgowrie, was Corsairtly Oswald, a January, 2018-born bull which secured six breed championships and two reserve inter-breeds at shows this summer.

Three bulls came under the hammer at 6,200gn, two of them from Andrew Burnett’s Spittalton herd at Thornhill, Stirling.

A Sime and Son, Elgin, bought Spittalton Outlaw, by Burnbank Judge and the Scottish Government’s Bull Stud at Inverness matched the price for Spittalton Oxo.

By Rahoney Geoffrey, out of Elrick Fandango, he was knocked down to Robert and Hazel McNee, Over Finlarg, Dundee.
