Leading Ladies sale hits record trade

POPULAR: One of the joint sale toppers at Will & Gareth Corrie’s annual sale selling for £4400, and travelling to Gary Bell, Lockerbie.

THERE was huge pre-sale interest in the recent Leading Ladies sale of commercial in-calf heifers, stag-ed on behalf of Will and Gareth Corrie, Newtownards.

The sale ring at Ballymena Mart welcomed buyers from right across the Province, with many more choosing to bid online from the comfort of their own home.

The headline price of £4,400 was paid on two occasions for tremendous black Limousin bred

heifers, chased closely by an-other at £4,000. These were all snapped up by Gary Bell, Lockerbie.

Local and repeat buyers were also determined to purchase stock on what was hailed as the best offering from the Corrie duo to date. This resulted in an average of £2,463 for a 100 per cent clearance.

Will and Gareth Corrie would like to thank all who purchased or bid for stock at their sale, and to all those who assisted in any way in the run up to their annual event. Plans are already in place for next year’s event.
