FABBL, the UK food industry’s leading inspection and certification organisation, is sponsoring a two day show and sale of cattle at the Harrison & Hetherington's Borderway Mart, Carlisle on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th March.

Special prize shows & sales of Continental Cross store cattle including many animals with show potential. First day - heifers, Second day - steers.

“The Borderway Mart is an important showcase for some of the best cattle early in the year and it’s a great pleasure to be able to provide sponsorship,” says Chris Reading FABBL General Manager of Agriculture UK. “We at FABBL believe in giving the proper recognition to the best in British agriculture and the prizes we’re sponsoring at the Borderway Mart are designed to show just what UK beef producers can achieve.”

“FABBL assurance is the one guarantee of quality respected throughout the industry,” he says. “EFSIS-FABBL is the only inspection body that can give you that assurance.”

On the Friday there is a show of heifers at 9 am, followed by a sale at 10.30am. This is followed by a show of steers on the Saturday, also at 9 am, with a sale at 10.30 am. FABBL will be sponsoring both shows with prizes of free FABBL inspection for the winning animals. More than 2,200 animals are expected to be entered for this event.

“This show and sale has a national reputation for trading many high quality cattle with show ring potential, which provides an excellent opportunity for purchasers to obtain animals to go to the summer shows and national prime stock events in the autumn.  The sale also has a great selection of commercial type animals suitable for the specialist retail trade,” says David Pritchard, Operations Director of Harrison & Hetherington. “We’re very pleased to have sponsorship from FABBL for a show which is sure to bring out the best livestock on offer.”
