Corries hosts best sale yet

RIGHT: Carrigeen Farms paid £3100 for this Simmental heifer sold by the Corries at their annual heifer sale.

THE sale ring at Ballymena Mart was packed to overflowing for the recent sale of in-calf suckler heifers hosted by Will and Gareth Corrie.

Billed as the ‘Leading Ladies’ event, it certainly lived up to its name

with prices hitting headlines at £3,600 and a clearance of 90 head levelling at £1,988.

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 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.
