The first part of the dispersal sale of DR Cornthwaite, Balgray Hill, Lockerbie, held today, Tuesday 22nd June, at Harrison & Hetherington’s Lockerbie Mart saw Simmental cows and heifers with calves at foot sell to a top of £2550 with further lots at £2500 (x2), £2400, £2350, £2250 and with a number over the £2000 mark. The sale, with 120 Limousin and Simmental heifers and stock cows with Limousin & Blue calves at foot forward, saw every lot sell to average just under £2050.

The top Simmental price of £2550 (pictured) was paid for a May 2018 born female sold with an April born Lim bull calf at foot, with the outfit being knocked down to J&I Pattinson, Bonshawside, Kirtle Bridge, Lockerbie. J M Goldie, Newbie Mains, Annan paid £2500 for a rising five year old Simmental cow with her May born Limousin heifer calf at foot. Also at £2500 was an April 2018 born Simmental sired female sold with her April born Limousin heifer calf at foot to J&I Longlands, Tone Hall Farm, Bartley, Hexham.

Great to see a good demand for some first class Simmental outfits, and look out for further announcements on the second part of the sale of the Balgray Hill commercial herd in due course.
