The sale topper was an exceptional black Limousin heifer snapped up by a Newtownards farmer at £3,600. Close behind at £3,100 was a super Simmental type purchased by Carrigeen Farms Ballyclare.

Gareth Corrie was delighted how the sale went and commented that there was a large proportion of the cattle went to repeat buyers who had been delighted with previous purchases from them.

This was a busy week for the Corrie family who exhibited at a number of fatstock shows in addition to the sale, and accrued a number of awards at each.

Will and Gareth Corrie would like to thank all of their buyers and wish them well with their stock.
