Record Price for Charolais Bull in Norway

Erling Gresseth, Veistad Charolais, of Norway set a Norwegian Beef Cattle record price when he sold Total Balanz for $180,000 NOK ($29,000 CAD). This yearling bull resulting from an embryo from Canada is a full brother to Winn Mans Lanza. Erling has been very successful with his Canadian genetics in Norway and has been to Canada numerous times to select genetics. Tonight on Norwegian National television there was a story on Erling selling this record setting bull. Although it is in Norwegian I have attached the link to the TV story.
