One of the top prices at the Native Breeds Spring Show and Sale at Dungannon Farmers’ Mart was received by an Aberdeen Angus breeder from Fermanagh.

With the top price of 5,400gns going to Jonathan and Lisa Doyle, Cookstown, the next best at 5,200gns was the supreme champion, Home Farm Lord Harry X647 bred by Fintan Keown who runs a herd of ten pedigree and 25 commercial cows at Belleek, County Fermanagh.

Sired by Haymount War Smith R578, this May 2021 born bull is bred from the Spangager Tommy Boy daughter, Home Farm Lady Honey T161.

He was placed second in his class at the NI club’s Summer Championship Show at Clogher last July. Highest bidder was W Bond, Eglinton, County Londonderry.

Judge Maddie Clarke described the champion as a very correct bull.

“It’s been a great show, with quality to the fore, rather than quantity.

“Today’s champion really stood out. He is a very correct bull with tremendous power, good conformation and breed character.

“The reserve champion is another excellent bull.

“Slightly younger than the champion, but well put together, with good conformation and breed characteristics.”

There was a strong demand for pedigree Aberdeen Angus bulls.
