The Irish Belgian Blue cattle society hosted its premier autumn sale in Tullamore on Friday, with trade topping at €3,650.

The catalogue of 20 animals incorporated the reduction sale of Myles McDermott's Rathlyon herd, which achieved many of the night’s top prices. Leading the way was Rathlyon Kate, selling for €3,650. This black-and-white two-year-old heifer is sired by De Fooz and goes back to a Gitan-bred dam.
