Both Judge John Elliot and Auctioneer Scott Donaldson commented on the good quality cattle presented. It was most definitely “ladies’ day” for Lincoln Reds at Carlisle. 5,200 Guineas was the second highest price paid for all Breeds. Whilst the number of cattle forward was lower than previous years there was 100% clearance on Lincoln Red females.
President, Ian McNee, thanked all Vendors for supporting the Sale and for turning out very well-presented Lincoln Reds – which most definitely reflected in the prices and thanked Purchasers who ensured 100% clearance and a record price, you couldn’t get any better. He also thanked Auctioneer, Scott Donaldson, the Pedigree Sales & Marketing Manager, Heather Pritchard, and the H&H Team for all their help in making the Show and Sale such a success.
Our next Official Society Show & Sale will be the Premier Spring Show and Sale at Melton Mowbray Market on 26th March 2022.
