Limousin averages drop £3000

Despite 11 five-figure transactions, overall averages dropped just short of £3000 at a show and sale of pedigree Limousin bulls at Carlisle where the lead priced lot from first time consignor, Stephen Nixon, Wigton, sold for 32,000gns.

Selling at this bracket was Huntershall Gladiator, a Rossignol-sired bull out of the Sympa daughter, Huntershall Dancer. The buyers were commercial show calf producers Neil Hardisty, and Ian Knight from Cumbria, with Norbreck Genetics, taking a third share.
