The article reports that Charolais females met a decidedly cautious trade compared with their Simmental counterparts 24 hours previously when they sold at Perth, England. Leading the bids was a 4200gns call for a heifer from the draft of the Thrunton herd of Colin, Ian and John Campbell, Alnwick, Northumberland, England. The next top bid was one from Murray Lyle's draft sale, Loganbar Annabelle, at 3400gns.
