The Cumberland and Dumfriesshire Farmers’ Mart P.L.C. had
forward a catalogue entry of 751 suckled calves at their Annual Show
and Sale on Saturday 6th October 2012.
Credit must be given to all vendors for the way the cattle were
turned out, considering the poor summer we’ve had. Well
fleshed cattle sold extremely well but weathered cattle proved
harder to sell. The sale average was up £59.63 on last
years record average.
We would like to thank the sponsors Capontree Vets, and the judge
Elaine Sedgewick, Durham, who awarded the championship to a terrific
British Blue bullock from A. & J.N. Story, Newbiggin, which later
realised £1,250 and was purchased by the judge.
champion went to W.H. &
D.A. Gass, Nunscleugh for a Limousin heifer which sold at £1,200,
purchased by A.A. & J. Brand, Fife.
