Confidence seems to be riding high in the suckler sector, with a few exceptional sales of in-calf heifers across the border region and the west in recent weeks. A number of farmers have gone down the road of buying in maiden heifers, keeping them 12 months and selling them on as in-calf heifers. It’s a recipe that appears to be working for most. Monday night’s sale in Carrigallen included the much anticipated selection of 30 in calf heifers from local farmer Herbie Griffith.
