Saturday, May 8th, 2021, was a historic day for first-time vendors, J & T Waring from Everingham, when they put their bull, Everpark Partylight, under the hammer for 50,000gns at Carlisle.
Judge Archie Macgregor of the Allanfauld herd placed the bull first in his class at the British Limousin Society’s sale before tapping him out as intermediate champion.
This September-2019-born embryo calf is a son of 38,000gns Ampertaine Foreman and the greatly admired Millington Highlight, who was purchased by the herd at the Millington dispersal sale for 50,000gns with a calf at foot.
50,000gns bull, Partylight, carries myostatin of F94L and Q204X and a beef value in the top 1% of the breed, LM55.
This was the first bull to be put under the hammer from the 15-cow Everpark herd after establishing six years ago. Breeder, Tom Waring was over the moon with the trade and commented, “We wanted our first bull that we offered for sale to be a good one, so have waited until Partylight.”

This December-2019-born Mereside Godolphin son displays two sets of the F94L ‘profit’ gene and is out of Homebyres Nigella, who was purchased at the Red Ladies Derby in 2018.
