Taking place on October 1st the sale will commence at 1030am. A total of 220 heifers will go under the hammer with a selection of in calf, maiden, yearling and weanling heifers to choose from.
There will be 100 in calf heifers, 80 maiden, 20 weanling and 20 yearling.
'Its bascially west of Ireland cattle that will be sold on the day,' says Gerry Lenehan Vice chairman of the Western Simmental club.
'We’d be hoping for some big sales, heifers were getting 3400 last year and theres always few scottish and English buyers that come so that always adds a bit of excitment to the day.
On commenting on the quality of the heifers Gerry pointed out that the majority of the heifers were 5 stars animals.
The sale will take place in the Aurivo Mart, Ballymoate, County Sligo and promises to be a great days trade.
