The Connacht / Ulster Angus Breeders Club will host their Ballymote Black Magic Annual sale of pedigree Registered un-haltered females on Thursday 13th October next.
Now in its third year, the sale is due to kick-off at 7pm, with Aurivo Ballymote Mart, Co. Sligo set to stage the event.
63 pedigree registered Angus females, including weanling heifers, maiden and in-calve heifers, in-calve cows and cows with calves at foot are set to go under the hammer on the evening.
Bernard Kerins, treasurer of Connacht / Ulster Angus Breeders Club told That’s Farming:
‘This sale provides farmers with a great opportunity to purchase foundation Angus females in order to establish a herd, or to add to an already existing herd.
Annually, we select a charity to donate a portion of the year’s club’s profits to and this year we have selected North West Hospice.’
Last year’s Ballymote Black Magic sale saw breeders take home notable prices, with the top price of €3,500 for an in-calf heifer on the day, while maiden heifers sold up to €2,200 and the top Angus heifer weanling fetched €1720.
