This was the third year for this event and we were pleased to be a main sponsor again. We also make sure we support the event by having a trade stand. This year the weather was a little kinder to us and it was a lot warmer than the previous year when we had to huddle round the tea urn to keep us all warm.
We had an excellent day, keeping us all busy with many people coming to visit us. Clients and non-clients came to have a drink with us and a chat about business and the ever changing things happening out there in the farming community.
Our competition this year was ‘What am I worth’ – 12 photos of some of the top price breeds both cattle and sheep, sold at the Harrison & Hetherington marts around the country. This proved to be a very popular competition and the overall winner was Edwin Holliday. H&H also had a competition that we sponsored and this year it was ‘Spot the David Allen & Co Mugs’ which everyone could take part in throughout the day. This proved very popular with the younger ones there for a day out on their half term holidays.
Overall, it was a fantastic day and very busy and we look forward to next year’s event.
