It was a good day for the prefix taking the Junior Champion Bull with Glenlands J Unite (P) with a 116 EMA reading and a weight of 696kg and scans of 15/9mm the youngster is catalogued as Lot 9 in the forthcoming sale. Another sale member to grab headlines was the Reserve Senior Champion Bull, Glenlands J Unleased (P) (120EMA, 780kg and 14/9mm). Unleashed sells as Lot 4 in the 2016 sale.
