The win rounds up another flying year for Strathisla, who took the top price both at Edinburgh and the National, of 48,000gns and 10,000gns respectively.

“Carcase is my number one priority, I never look at the pedigree until I’ve looked at the carcase,” he told the visitors that had travelled the length and breadth of the Society’s province, the UK and Eire, last week (November 1). He said that carcase is first second and third priority, you only have to watch the bulls in Perth to know – it’s the ones with the big back ends that make the most.”Crest of a Wave for Strathisla Suffolk Carcase Quality
