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.
