The Irish shorthorn cattle society hosted its premier annual autumn sale in Roscommon on Saturday, with a new male record price set.

The stylish March 2019-born bull Rockville Banada 452 set the sale alight when he left the ring at a price of €4,800. Bred and exhibited by Anthony Dockery, the roan bull is a son of Tentore Dearg and out of the Bushypark Enda 3rd daughter Bennekerry Rose Red. Banada now finds pastures new in a commercial suckler herd in Co Meath.
