Sir­loin steaks sold out as beef re­turns to Ar­gyll Coun­try Mar­ket

The Oban Times - - Farming -

A KIN­TYRE farmer is very pleased with buoy­ant beef sales in his first ven­ture at di­rect sell­ing.

Wil­liam Tav­erner, who farms 30 Gal­loway cat­tle at Goba­gren­nan near Camp­bel­town, sold three quar­ters of a 300kg car­cass as beef cuts at Ar­gyll Coun­try Mar­ket.

Mr Tav­erner said: ‘ We had a great turnout con­sid­er­ing it was such a wet day and sold out of sir­loin steaks. My son Nathan thor­oughly en­joyed him­self on the stall.

‘A Ger­man lady has given us five stars for the sausages, which is praise in­deed. We have just sent the beast away for the De­cem­ber sale, when due to cus­tomer de­mand we will have rib eye steaks.

‘It has been very ex­cit­ing, al­though it is al­ways nerve-wrack­ing tak­ing on a new ven­ture.’
