On Saturday 23 September, I was delighted to represent David Allen and attend H&H Borderway Mart, Carlisle as part of our sponsorship for the annual Autumn suckled calf show and sale.
I was proud to present to the overall champion, a Galloway cross heifer shown by Messrs Telfer & Claxton of Stocksfield, Northumberland. This superb entry went on to sell for the top price seen in the sale at £3,500 and was purchased by the judge of the event Mr W Timms of Barlow who recognised the fantastic entry which was sired by the registered bull ‘Glenkiln Dynamite’ and out of a pure Limousin cow sired by ‘Rainbow Simon’.
Following at £2,400 was the reserve overall champion a black Limousin cross heifer from Messrs Lee Agars Hill, Hexham, which sold to Hannah Donaldson of Huby, York.
It was fantastic to see the auction deliver another great trade with averages levelling at £1072.50 for steers and £1002.95 for heifers. It was a pleasure to attend this event which we were very proud to sponsor and be part of.
