There was a good turn-out at the Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders Club in-lamb Christmas export sale at Dungannon Farmers’ Mart despite the poor weather.

Matt’s Flexable ET, purchased by Darren Gallagher from Ballygawley, County Tyrone, was sired by Hackney Corker ET with Pentland Dixie ET, the dam.

Artnagullion Emily, purchased by Edward and Shirlee Nicholson from Kilkeel, was sired by Airyolland Blackthorn with the dam being Artnagullion Champagne ET.

Leading prices:

Lot 10: 1140gns was paid for Elizabeth McAllister’s Artnagullion Eva by Edward and Shirlee Nicholson from Kilkeel.
