Buyers selective at Limousin sale


There was a packed house at Borderway Mart but buyers moved carefully through the catalogue at today’s official sale for the British Limousin Cattle Society. Yes, there was competitive bidding, but this discerning ringside was quick to keeps hands in pockets for bulls that failed to “hit the spot”.


Among the early afternoon highlights was a 10,000gns deal for the Ridley’s Haltcliffe George – a Cloughhead Umpire son out of a Sympa cow – and 12,000gns for the Millgate Caesar son Alagils Gershwin from Mr A J and Mrs G Macnab.


The Attirant son Netherhall Goliath from Nether Hall Farm Ltd made 17,000gns just ahead of another herdmate by the same sire at 7000gns.
