The Irish Limousin Cattle Society held its final sale of the year in Granard livestock mart last Friday. The Longford venue hadn’t run a society sale in a number of years, but given the demand for the Limousin breed over the past year, the society gave it the green light for 2017.

Overall, 33 bulls were catalogued for the sale. However, due to the scheduling of the sale late in the season, just 18 bulls were present on the day. These bulls saw a mixed trade, starting at €2,000 to a high of €3,600, with an average of €2,553.
