"He had a moderate frame with low birthweight and good carcase figures," said Nelson Carlow.
The Angus, yearling bull, Kidman Shakespeare T108, was purchased by Greg Radford, Tottenham.
Mr Radford purchased Kidman Shakespeare T108 as he was seeking a heifer bull and thought he would be a great addition to his commercial operation.
