By Knockenjig Foremost, she sold in-calf to Fearn Godfather to LFP Farms, Grangehill Farm, Luncarty, Perthshire. LFP Farms also paid 8,000gn for seven-year-old Coldrochie Grace Beauty with her heifer calf at foot. By Colnvalley Bogart, she sold in-calf to Godfather.

Another at 8,000gn, also selling to Mr Anderson, was March-2016 born heifer Coldrochie Irania Rainbow, who was in-calf to Lintonpriory Victory. Young bulls sold to 7,000gn for Coldrochie Leif, by Fearn Godfather, selling to Tracy Severn, Brick Green Farm, Halifax.
