WELL DONE DALCHIRLA
Records were smashed at United Auctions Stirling sale of Blackface ewe hoggs on the 15th May 2017 when Ian Hunter Dalchirla, Muthill, sold a ewe hogg for £12,000 to create a new female record for the breed. The previous record being £8000 for an inlamb female from Ewen Macmillan, Lurg. This outstanding ewe hogg, named Emma was bought by Billy McFarlane and sons, Alfie and Joe, from Drumgrange at Patna. Billy said This is one of the best females I have seen in a long time, she has everything going for her, good hair, good legs, great shape and tremendous character.
Ian Hunter commented I was blown away by the interest in her and didnt expect a trade anywhere near what she made. Off the £10,000 Nunnerie tup bought in 2015 as a lamb at Dalmally and out of a ewe by £30,000 Aitkenhead. Ian said £10,000 Nunnerie is the best breeding tup that I have bought in recent years
Hugh and Alan Blackwood, Auldhouseburn, surpassed their previous record of £2000 for a pen of ewe hoggs when they received £2200 from Sam Wallace, Northern Ireland. This pen of three hoggs consisted of two off £160,000 Dalchirla with the third sired by £50,000 Crossflatt.
