Judging the competition was Anita Padfield from Brambles, Norfolk, whilst Blackadders' Rural Land & Business Partner Ellen Eunson and Associate Solicitor Hazel Anderson presented winners with their awards.   

The event attracted top-quality calves from noted breeders in the north and further south, and saw the supreme championship awarded to Barry Paterson’s Limousin cross heifer from Cairndaie Croft, Sauchen, Inverurie.

In total, 41 of the 49 calves forward sold to new homes and saw heifers average £1994.71 or 421.8p per kg, while bullocks cashed in at £1393.04 or 327.2p.

Aberdeen and Northern Marts’ head of livestock, John Angus, said: “We had an excellent show of calves forward today, with increased numbers on the year and a fantastic top price of £5600. This proved that top-quality calves were commanding premium prices in the sale ring.”

Topping the sale at £5600 was Balfour’s second prize Limousin cross heifer from Sebay View, Tankerness. Weighing 498kg, this home-bred, April, 2018-born heifer is by Ronick Laddie and out of a British Blue cross Limousin cow which was also purchased from the Dick family at Mains of Throsk, Stirling.
