March has been a busy month for selling pedigree heifers, with five heifers sold in to three herds.
Taking three of these heifers, Ampertaine Golden Girl, Ampertaine Greta and Ampertaine Gina, were D and S Sloan for the Rock herd, Kilrea. Both Goldengirl and Great are by Bailea Bullion, while Gina is an Ampertaine Commander daughter.
Meanwhile, Barney and Stephen O’Kane of the Keadyview herd have bought Ampertaine Gillian, a Sympa daughter. Completing the sales, Ampertaine Gloria sold to David Campbell, Plumbridge, for his commercial herd. Gloria is a Cloughhead Umpire daughter.
Finding new homes too were a pair of bulls; Ampertaine Granite, a Bailea Bullion son sold to James Clarke, Kilrea, for pedigree use in the Weyside herd and Ampertaine Filipo, a Woodhouse Vince son, sold to A and T Butler of Ballycastle for commercial use.
