My thanks to Northern Irish spies for the following results from yesterday’s Allams show and sale off prime cattle.
Taking the top ticket in the cattle was Messrs Law Brothers with their senior Limousin steer which sold for £3800, reserve honours went to Messrs McKenna Bros with their junior Charolais heifer which brought them £3000.
Top in the housewife’s choice award were Rainey Bros with a Limousin which made £4000, reserve here was M Johnston.
Taking the calf championship was G Cutler with a Limousin heifer which made £3000 and reserve in the calves were Okane Bros.
The Limousin title went to the overall champion from Law Brothers, while reserve was the same beast as took the Housewife’s choice award. The Law Brothers also won the British Blue championsip with the reserve from N and S Cochrane. Simmental champion came from McKenna Brothers, with James Alexander bringing out the reserve. Charolais champion also came from the McKenna brothers, the same beast as reserve overall and the reserve in these was A Farlow. Hereford champion was from James Alexander and the reserve came from McKenna Bros.
And the Angus champion was also from James Alexander, with his Black Beauty two taking the honours. This one sold at £2300 to Nigel Matchett and now heads to the west coast of Scotland and is likely to be seen on the circuit next summer. She is twin to Black Beauty one which won at Clogher Valley, before being bought by Harry Emslie and being Smithfield bound next week.
