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.


The reserve 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.
