UA’s ‘Ross-trum’ Rascal graduates as Fellow

Newly qualified UA auctioneer Ross Fotheringham receives his FIA (Scot) certificate from Past President of the Institute of Auctioneers and Appraisers Scotland (IAAS) and Executive Chairman of United Auctions David Leggat.

New Fellow Ross (23) joined United Auctions aged 17 as a trainee auctioneer and completed the four-year, distance-learning degree from Harper Adams University in Shropshire under the mentorship of UA Sales Manager and Auctioneer George Purves.

He covers the east of Scotland as a sheep and cattle auctioneer and has gained experience selling both commercial and pedigree stock, including at the Stirling Bull Sales in February. Last year he led the UA team, Rostrum Rascals, to victory at RSABI’s Great Glen Rural Challenge.

David Leggat said: “We’re really pleased that Ross has achieved his Fellowship of the IAAS and it’s great to see the progress being made by him and his peers of young auctioneers as they play an important role in the future of the business.”

Scottish Mart Meetings State Tight Global Beef Supplies Will Keep Prices High

Beef prices look likely to remain firm on the back of a tight supply of cows and calves in the chain, according to Stuart Ashworth of Quality Meat Scotland (QMS), who spoke at a series of beef meetings held at four of Scotland’s Marts, including Stirling Agricultural Centre.

At the events organised by Bank of Scotland, Keenan and QMS at Thainstone, Lanark, Dingwall and Stirling auction marts, local farmers heard that the Scottish beef herd is very challenged following high culling rates. “There is little prospect of significantly more cattle appearing over the next couple of years so the tight supply will remain,” he said.

Mr Ashworth suggested that the supply and price dynamics are also likely to be affected going forward by low animal numbers in many parts of the world, for example numbers in the USA, one of the world’s biggest beef trader, are significantly down on stock as a result of the drought in 2011.

This worldwide shortfall will limit where domestic and international buyers could seek alternative supplies. “There is a tight supply everywhere, so prices will remain firm; there will be no cheap beef for the EU market. However, with consumer confidence remaining fragile, farmgate prices may be constrained by consumers’ willingness to pay higher retail prices.”

The audience consensus was that the supply and price equation certainly points to opportunity for those with cattle to fatten and finish, as well as those selling stores. However the high price of feed is still a big concern as is the outcome of the CAP reform, which is making many reticent to invest in upping cow numbers.

The Bank of Scotland and Keenan focused their discussions on the need for improved efficiency in production to give the confidence that good margins can still be made independent of the single farm payment.

“The rise in beef price since August 2009 has been 17%; over the same period feed wheat prices have increased by 76%, so what can farmers do to capture the value that we’re seeing in rising sale prices, whilst insulating yourselves from these increases in input costs?” Sandy Hay from the Bank of Scotland asked.

Mr Hay said production efficiency equates directly to business efficiency, which gives the bank’s enhanced confidence in lending to farmers looking to capitalise on the undoubted domestic and export opportunities. “The QMS average for feed plus forage cost is 50%, a 10% reduction in costs would give a net margin improvement per finisher of £22.31 whilst a 10% reduction in feeding days from the QMS average of 221 days to 199 days would yield an improvement of £20.65 per head.”

In addition to feed costs and feeding days, Mr Hay suggested that it was imperative that producers should also focus their attention on feed conversion efficiency (FCE) – “an improvement in FCE from the average of 182kg gain/tonne of feed up to 200kg gain/tonne of feed would yield another £16.72/head. The combination of a 10% improvement in all three areas would be £59.68/head.”

Keenan’s Robert Gilchrist said that feeding the Keenan Mech-Fiber System way is all about driving efficiency improvements.  “The average improvement for beef finishing units using the System is £47/head based on feeding a similar ration but presenting it in a more physically effective manner. This improves rumen function and, in turn, animal performance.”

He explained that FCE is one of the most important measures for any livestock farmer; it is widely used by pig and poultry farmers but should also be the focus of beef farmers. “The measure of feed conversion efficiency is kilos of liveweight gain per tonne of dry matter fed. This means that if feed is costing £150/tonne of dry matter and you were to improve your FCE by 10% from 100 to 110, the cost per kilo would fall by 14 pence.”

“Achieving marked improvements in FCE is our goal and it boils down to the physically effective mix that you get from the Keenan,” he explained. “The Mech-Fiber as we call it encourages the animal to chew the cud for longer, slowing the passage of feed through the rumen and improving the level of digestion.” He added that the other real gain for first time Keenan users is that for many it gives them very accurate feed intake and cost information for the first time. “If you can’t measure it, how do you know how you’re doing?”

Stuart Ashworth concluded that there is certainly opportunity for beef producers going forward, but the one thing that would give them the confidence they need to invest for the future is improving their production efficiency.

David Leggat, Executive Chairman of United Auctions, who chaired the largest seminar, held at Stirling Agricultural Centre, said: “Numbers of store cattle forward at our weekly sales are well ahead of last year due to prevailing buoyant prices and also a shortage of bedding and feed stuffs in some areas. This is likely to mean a reduction of numbers in April, the traditional time for buying store cattle for the grass. “

Ambassador Award for UA’s David Leggat

United Auctions’ Executive Chairman David Leggat MBE has been honoured with an NFU Scotland Ambassador Award at the union’s annual dinner, held last night (Monday 13th February).

In front of 450 guests in St Andrews, Mr Leggat was praised for his support of the auction system in Scotland and his central role in the Perth Bull Sales, which have taken place at the company’s headquarters in Stirling since 2009.

Now in its fourth year, the ambassador award was set up by the National Farmers Union in Scotland, and supported by NFU Mutual, to recognise an individual who has played an important role in communicating the work, challenges and value of Scottish farming to a wider audience.

NFUS President Nigel Miller, who made the presentation, said: “David has been part of a quiet revolution in how livestock producers approach breeding, pushing selection beyond simple genetics and looks to adding value through using performance-recorded stock and defined health status.”

David Leggat said: “The award came as a complete surprise and it’s a great honour to receive it.”

Previous winners of the prestigious award are SAC’s Head of Communications Ken Rundle, agricultural journalist Dan Buglass, who was honoured posthumously, and one of Scotland’s favourite cooks Claire Macdonald.

UA Hosts Delegation from China’s Ministry of Agriculture in Stirling

United Auctions (UA) recently welcomed a delegation of 14 animal scientists from China at the Stirling Agricultural Centre on a fact-finding mission about Scotland’s auction market operations.

The Beijing delegates from China’s Ministry of Agriculture met with Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers for a sit-down, technical discussion followed by a tour of the sheep ring during the Centre’s prime sheep auction to witness sale operations first hand.

With the help of an interpreter from London, the high profile group spent more than an hour with UA’s Executive Chairman David Leggat, discussing protocols for controlling cattle movement, traceability and the principle of organised livestock marketing.

They were particularly interested in UA’s Bull Sales as market leaders for animal health.

Mr Leggat was presented with a gift of Chinese pottery, signifying good luck, to commemorate the visit.

David Leggat MBE, Executive Chairman of United Auctions, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the delegation from Beijing to the City of Stirling and share best practices in animal science, health and welfare.

“At a time when cultural, environmental and commercial relations between China and Scotland are so important, we’re pleased to play our part in developing agricultural links between our two countries.”

Following the visit to the Agricultural Centre, the delegation took in the sights at Stirling Castle.

70,000gn world breed record set in Stirling at Perth Bull Sales

A new world record price of 70,000 guineas (equivalent to £73,500) was set for the Charolais breed today (Wednesday, February 19th) on the last day of United Auction’s (UA’s) Perth Bull Sales.

Surpassing the previous record of 56,000 guineas, set in 1989, it establishes a new record for Scotland and for UA’s Stirling Agricultural Centre, the venue for the world-famous event.

It also achieves the Continental breed record average price – of £6,279 on 97 animals sold.

The Charolais bull, called Barnsford Ferny, took less than two minutes in the sale ring to attract the record-breaking price, sold by Stirling auctioneer David Brown.

Known as ‘Ferny’, the 17-month-old bull was bred and exhibited by Tom and Sheena Gatherer from Barnsford, Inchinnan, Glasgow. He is their first ever homebred beast to go through the ring and was sold to Charlie Boden of Mellor, Stockport.

“Achieving this price was beyond our wildest dreams,” said Sheena. “Being the first animal ever to sell we really had no idea how things would go, however as soon as he arrived at the mart, he amassed a number of admirers.”

With a herd of only three cows, the couple, who both work full time for the SPCA, established a pedigree Charolais herd on their 65-acre smallholding in 2007 with bull Alwent Broom, an early 50th birthday present for Tom.

Mr Boden said that Ferny had the size, scale, scope and muscle: “I needed a bull, and he was the boy. He looks like a real Charolais and he has the figures to match in particular for birthweight and eye muscle.”

David Leggat MBE, Executive Chairman of United Auctions, said: “It’s tremendously exciting to achieve a record price and to have a bull of such outstanding calibre through the ring. For the first-time sellers, a result like this is like a fairytale and it brings to a fantastic end a very successful Bull Week.”

United Auctions (UA), Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers, are set to welcome farmers and pedigree enthusiasts from Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and beyond for the October Sales, which run from Monday, October 17th to Wednesday, October 19th.

Said David Leggat MBE, executive chairman of United Auctions: “We expect there to be quite a buzz in the sale ring from the high quality entries on offer. Virtually every lot is sold with a herd health declaration and EBV (Estimated Breeding Value) figures, which look very impressive.”

A first for the Bull Sales this year is the ‘AI for RSABI’ sale of Bovine Genetics, which aims to raise funds for RSABI (the Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution), Scotland’s charity helping people who have depended on the land.

The charity auction takes place at 5.30pm on Sunday, October 16th, for which more than 85 lots have been donated, including semen that is no longer available on the open market such as Tofts Romany, Rawburn Transformer, Dunlouise Jipsey Earl and Doonally New, as well as widely used bulls Glenlivet Single Malt, Omorga Samson and Grahams Unbeatable.

Said Mr Leggat: “We’re delighted to host this new event, which offers an exciting range of semen and helps raise awareness and funds for the charity.”

Added Eilidh Grieve, RSABI Development Officer for Central Scotland: “The auction is an important part of our fundraising program and we’re thrilled to have UA’s support and the platform of the prestigious Bull Sales.”

Held under the auspices of the national breed societies, the Perth Bull Sales® are sponsored by Scotland’s leading independent property consultancy CKD Galbraith.
