It was yet another successful day’s trading at Worcester for Oakchurch Aberdeen-Angus cattle, with the March 2016-born Oakchurch Dare Devil S250 selling for 4000gns. This youngest bull in the catalogue not he day is out of a Te Mania Berkley B1 daughter, Oakchurch Donna N120 and sold with a terminal sire index of +48 and a self replacing index of +64. Buyer was A R Johns, Newton Abbot, Devon.
Just shy of that price at 3800gns was Oakchurch Firefox R233. This second placed bull is again by Oakchurch Equity N141 and this time out of a Rawburn Transformer daughter. He found a new home with W J Winning, Blunsdon, Swindon.
Of the female offering, Oakchurch genetics topped the sale with our female and reserve overall champion, Oakchurch Duchess S245. Again, born March 2016, this heifer is half sister to our top priced bull being by Equity and is out of a Hoff Limited Edition daughter. She sold for 3200gns to Will and Sophie Crystal for their fast growing Wingate herd, Co Durham.
Worcester is now proving to be a strong location for English vendors and buyers alike and we look forward to continuing to support McCartneys with this growing sale in future years.
