The cancellation of regional shows and winter fairs has not dampened farmer appetite for cattle with show potential. This was very evident at Friday night's special sale in Carnaross where Tateetra and Rathmore Farms presented 150 commercially-bred heifers for sale.

The entry included over 20 halter-trained show-type heifers with the best of these generating huge competition and a flurry of bidding. The top-priced heifer on the night was a 320kg Limousin cross heifer born 18 December 2019 which sold for €4,100 or a massive €12.84/kg.
