A catalogued entry of 168 store and breeding cattle and 1,016 sheep of all classes sold on Saturday June 4 to a packed ringside of buyers. All classes of stock sold readily, and sellers headed home having had a very satisfactory day’s trading.

Bullocks sold to a top price per head of £1,060 for British Blue cross from Fearnoch, while Limousin cross bullocks from Garraron sold to 288.1p/ kilo. Heifers from Brenchoille sold to £950 per head, as Garraron again led the prices per kilo in this section, with Limousin crosses at 256.5.
