There was plenty of business done at the recent Balmoral Classic Sale of Texel females hosted by Andrew Kennedy, Martin and Cyril Millar and Danny and Daniel McKay, when buyers flocked to the Balmoral Park venue from right across Ireland and the UK to attend.

Trade peaked at 3100gns, paid to Andrew Kennedy for a Millars Yankee daughter carrying twins to Silverhill Bush Tucker. She was snapped up by the Millar duo.

Darren McKay realised 1600gns for the best from his pen. This was a Milnbank Womaniser daughter who had previously stood third in her class at RUAS as a lamb. She was purchased by Tom Kenny, Galway. Her full sister also caught the eye changing hands at 1320gns travelling to Kouzallis Ltd, Co Laois.

Martin and Cyril Millar sold to 1300gns paid by R Edwards for a Milnbank Womaniser daughter carrying to Mellorvale Masterpiece. Another from the same consignors realised 1200gns selling to S McCarthy.
