Two young sisters from Auchnagatt notched up a remarkable double success at Aberdeen & Northern Marts annual pedigree rams show and sale at the Thainstone Centre, Inverurie.

Erin Duncan (11), and sister Eilidh (12), of Braemuir Farm, took both the champion and the reserve champion titles in the Charollais classes. Their champion, a shearling ram, sold for 520gns to D & J Thomson, of Pitnacree, Strathtay, Pitlochry.

The sisters’ reserve champion was a ram lamb, which had already been male champion at both the Black Isle and New Deer shows during the summer. It sold for 620gns to the same buyer.
