Gowdy’s BBX ‘breaks all records’ at £9,000 (£29/kg)

Ballymena Mart Prices

All records were broken at Ballymena Livestock Mart’s first suckled calf sale of the season on September 24th, 2022.

That is according to a spokesperson, who reported that Stephen and Sandra Gowdy’s 8-month-old Belgian-Blue-cross weanling heifer with “with tremendous show potential” crossed the scales at 310kgs and changed hands for £9,000.

The second top price of £4,000 was paid to Nugent Estates, Portaferry, for a Limousin heifer, also weighing 310kgs.

Charolais heifers made to £3,400, a price that was paid to McAfee Bros.

Bushmills, who also took the top call in the bullock section, found a new home for their  490kg calf at £1700.

According to the spokesperson, the top price per kilo in the bullock section was paid to V McErlaine Armoy for a Charolais weighing 360kgs at £1,370 (3.81p/kg).

Before the sale, a show of Charolais and Limousin calves was held and judged by B Finnegan and K Diamond, respectively. Both Limousin sections were won by Ivan Lynn Armoy, and both Charolais sections were won by McAfee Bros.
