SALES of livestock peaked at £1,350 at the sale of William Ralston’s pedigree Holstein herd conducted by Lawrie and Symington at West Darlochan.

The beast that made that price was Darlochan History Sheena, the daughter of De-su History, whose dam was overall champion at a Kintyre stockjudging competition and whose grand-dam is a previous Campbeltown Show champion.

Also up for sale were 167 lots of tractors, implements and tools which reached a top price of £29,200 for a Massey Ferguson 6470 Dyna 6.
