Beef Shorthorns sell to top of 3000 guineas
Bidders meant business at the Native Breeds Sale held at Dungannon Farmers Mart, with Beef Shorthorn bulls and females selling at solid returns.
Hitting the top spot of 3000 guineas was an eye-catching son of Hussar of Upsalle presented by D&E McNulty.
This quality roan two year old was snapped up by C Warnock, Newmills.
Also in the money was Stephen Millar who realised 2700 guineas for his July 2019 born sold of Elliot Matrix. He travels to Newtownstewart with purchaser David Wauchob.
There was also spirited bidding for the select offering of Beef Shorthorn females. Croft Noreen caught the eye of M Coburn, Banbridge who forked out 2600 guineas to secure her. This smart roan heifer was brought out by Richard Henderson, and is sired by his stock bull Tullyjac Lightning
The same willing seller also parted with Croft Nuala for 2100 guineas. This maiden heifer was bought by Phil Evans, Dungannon.
Also realising 2100 guineas was a choice maiden from Percy Lindsay. This daughter of Alta Cedar Lads Legacy also was purchased by Phil Evans.
Beef Shorthorn cattle continue to be a popular choice both as a suckler cow, and a producer of easy fleshing beef cattle that are in demand over the counter. For more details of NI Beef Shorthorn Club events follow their facebook page.
