At €3,200 was lot number 8, described by Gallagher as a “real flushing contender”. She was born in May 2020 and is out of a Lodge Hamlet son, Gortermone Lump, and an Aberdeen Angus-cross Belgian Blue cow, herself a Goulding Jumbo King K436 ET.

The hammer fell at €3,100 for lot number 4, a January 2021-born Limousin-cross heifer, scanned in-calf to the aforementioned AI Limousin bull, EBY.

Changing hands at €2,650 was lot number 3, a BB4438 (An De Beauffaux) daughter out of a Limousin-cross-Simmental-cross Shorthorn dam, born in June 2021 and scanned in-calf to EBY.

The second heifer to hit this price tag was lot 31, a BB4438 (An De Beauffaux) daughter out of a 93% bred LM with some Angus influence, by Tomschoice Iceberg, born in January 2022.
