The annual commercial breeding heifer sale which was held last Saturday 29th October  at Roscrea mart Co Tipperary saw a very strong trade with prices well up on the previous year and some very notable prices paid for quality lots. The sale which is on a pre selected basis is organised by Alfie Percy from the South East Limousin club and Noel O’Grady from Roscrea mart.

With over 170 heifers entered on the day there was a good selection for the customers present with many being repeat buyers and  new people all anxious to aquire quality replacements for their suckler herds,indeed several customers went home with multiple purchases.

Increased numbers of farmers are realising the qualities of the Limousin breed.

The small entry of in calf heifers which were calving in February sold up to a top price of €1550 received by William Stack from John Maher.
