The spotlight will be on Limousin cattle at Hexham and Northern Marts next week.

A big sale, sponsored by the British Limousin Cattle Society, will be taking place on Friday October 11 at the mart.

Auctioneer, Chris Armstrong explained: “The society are very keen to reconnect with the commercial producers who make up the main body of our customers at Hexham.

“They want to reconnect with the suckler cow herd owners, listen to them and get their feedback which is why the society are coming on Friday the 11th which is solely for Limousin cattle.”
