THE Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders held their annual Show and Export Sale in Omagh and saw the sale being performed by the very talented auctioneer Richard Beattie of Beattie Livestock Sales.
The task of judging the presale show fell upon Ross Campbell and the club would like to thank him for his efforts on the day.
Both Overall Champion and top priced animal were awarded to Kile Diamond with his January 2022 born lamb Pointhouse Hazard ET, which is sired by Murrays Expert and from the dam Artnagullion Enghantress. This prize winning lamb was tapped down at 2000gns to Andrew McCutcheon and Matthew Burleigh.
