A spokesperson for the mart said that all of the entries - pedigree in-lamb Suffolk ewes - that were offered for sale, found new homes.
There was an excellent trade all-round, according to the spokesperson as entries from the Shannagh/Castleisle; Annakisha/Blackwater/Clyda and Barrowland flocks including guest consignments from Glyde and Malinhead Flocks went under the hammer; the Cloontagh flock was dispersed at the 8th Annual Production sale also.
