SEMENSTORE SIRES IN THE MONEY AT THE OCTOBER 2013 SALES

Semenstore’s impressive sire line-up saw a number of high profile sons go under the hammer during the October 2013 sales round.

At Carlisle, the sole entry from Colin Lewis, Garyvaughan Haines, sold for 13,500gns.  Haines is sired by Semenstore’s popular 35,000gns bull Plumtree Deus who also sired the 40,000gns sale topper at Carlisle in May, Mereside Godolphin.  Incidentally, look out for Godolphin coming to www.semenstore.co.uk very soon.

Northern Ireland breeder Derek Hume sold a son of Semenstore’s Carmon Copilot for 12,000gns to commercial stock breeder Stephen Duncan from Glenlivet. Copilot semen is in relatively short supply, but another 50 straws have just been released onto www.semenstore.co.uk.

Ian Nimmo had another great sale with his Junior Champion Maraiscote Hiphop. The recipe for this 12,000gns Junior Champion was a double helping of Semenstore sires: he is by the Semenstore supremo Goldies Comet with the dam of Hiphop being was another Semenstore favorite Virginia Andy.

Recipe recap - 2 shots of Semenstore bulls plus a little TLC = 12,000gns Junior Champion!

The recipe worked again when close on the heels of Hiphop was another Maraiscote bull, Hawk, selling for 11,500gns again sired by Goldies Comet and his dam being sired by Virginia Andy. Ian Nimmo took the prestigious Carlisle Three Award with three Goldies Comet sons and all out of Virginia Andy dams including the 8,000gns Maraiscote Harrier.

Next in the money were two sons of Wilodge Cerberus, the 50,000gns sire available on Semenstore, the first being from Donal Murray, a Secondary School Maths Teacher from Co Down who knows how to multiply when his Wilodge Cerberus son sold for 11,000gns.

The next son of Wilodge Cerberus was from Bruce Goldie with the 9,000gns Goldies Hawk.

At Stirling, the first two classes of senior bulls saw two sons of Semenstore’s Milbrook Dartangan sell for 6,000gns and 5,000gns both from Douglas & Linda Graham’s Burnbank Herd.

Moving onto the Intermediate bull classes, class winner and Intermediate Champion was the 5,800gns Maraiscote Harvey from the Nimmo Family, sired by Virginia Andy available from Semenstore.  Also in the Intermediate section was a very well-balanced, early son of Netherhall Doubleoseven from the Gammies of Westpit, when selling for 6,000gns to the Logans of Homebyres.  In the same section came a son of Wilodge Cerberus from A Findlay selling to 5,200gns.

In the same class as the Junior Champion from Spittalton, was another great son of Semenstore’s Virginia Andy selling for 7,000gns when consigned by Ian Nimmo, Maraiscote.

The last class of the day saw two sons of Derriaghy Enfield place first and second - both from the Irvines of Anside. The first-placed bull went on to Reserve Junior Champion and sold for 11,000gns and the 2nd place also a son of Derriaghy Enfield sold for 5,500.

Again at Stirling, but this time in the Charolais section, a son of Goldies Unbeatable available through Semenstore sold for 12,000gns. This was Charbron Heredity from retired MLC Livestock Officer Michael Brown of Barons Cross. 

Success of Semenstore sires was also evident in the strong Simmental show at Stirling when Corrick Duneden slapped out Junior Champion and sold for 11,000gns  he was a son of Micheal Durno's Clonagh Tiger Gallant available through Semenstore.
