The URBA Border Leicester sheep section goes back over 100 years when it held its first breed sale in Robson’s Mart, Belfast, on September 3, 1915.
The Carnew Flock, owned by the Aiken family of Dromara, County Down, showed at that sale and will be showing again at the National Show along with other members.
The Border Leicester section is once again indebted to its sponsors URBA, FS Herron Agricultural Feeds, ASC Ser-vices, Moore Animal Feeds Ltd, Danske Bank, Sam and Neil Anderson, Bank Of Ireland, Parklands Veterinary Group and Jim Brown.
