Dungannon Herefords sell to 3,000gns twice

Most bulls changed hands with firm demand

MOST bulls changed hands in the January premier show and sale of Herefords at Dungannon.

 

Trade topped at 3,000gns twice for bulls and the average was less than £100 down on the year.

 

The sale drew a good mix of dairy and suckler farmer buyers, with good quality bulls selling to every county in Northern Ireland.

The champion, Black Water Limelight, shown by Sam and Nigel Heatrick, Middletown, Co Armagh, sold for the joint top price of 3,000gns.

 

This June 2014 bull is by their stock bull Kye Sting 595. Messrs Heatrick also sold Black Water Lancer, by the same sire, for 2,100gns.

The McMordies also sold two other Henry sons, Solpoll 1 Lively, for 2,900gns and Solpoll 1 Landini for 2,500gns.

 

John Conlon, Markethill, Co Armagh, sold Drumatee Frank by the home-bred Drumatee Flamenco for 2,600gns.
