Entry of 1,600 cattle at show
An entry of 1,600 cattle is forward for Dingwall and Highland Marts’ anniversary show and sale next week.
The event, on Wednesday July 18, will start with a pre-sale show at 8.30am, with the sale at 10am. The judge is Jim Brown from Gaindykehead Farm, Airdrie.
Dingwall and Highland Marts managing director Ian Tolmie said: “We have a good entry of AberdeenAngus and some strong continental cattle, as well as an excellent show of yearlings and weaned calves.”
At last year’s fixture, the champion prize went to a 21-month-old Charolais cross bullock from WJ Jack and Son, Woodend, Killearnan. It sold for £1,550. Reserve was a 10-month-old Shorthorn bullock from Smallburn Farms, near Elgin. It sold for £1,350.
