Borderway Mart in Carlisle is beginning to set a trend when it comes to selling pedigree Limousin cattle.
Now joining the Harrison and Hetherington hall of fame which consists of names such as Wilodge Vantastic (42,000gns), Cloughhead Umpire (42,000gns), Fieldson Alfy (37,000gns) and of course the record breaking Haltcliffe Vermount (100,000gns), is Queenshead Altea.
Having taken the championship ticket at Friday’s Limousin Society spring sale last week, Altea, from Pat Varley, sold for the days highest price of 52,000gns. Not bad going since Pat has a herd of just 4 cows!!
The second highest price ont he day went to Co Londonderry breeder W & J McKay whose reserve junior champion Ambertaine Abracadabra sold for 29,000gns.
