12/07/2019

A Limousin cross heifer from Steven Smith, The Byre, Sunnyhill Croft, Turriff, ruled supreme at Aberdeen and Northern Marts' annual show and sale of store cattle. 

Weighing 512kg, this 13-month-old home-bred heifer is by Aultside Lord and stood champion with its dam at last year's Banchory Show. She sold for £1200 to Backmuir Livestock, Keith. 

The reserve champion was a 14-month-old Limousin cross bullock weighing 492kg from J Fraser and Sons, Lethen Mains, Nairn, which made £1140 to A and S Moggach, Newton of Clunie, Turriff.
