Irish fly in to raid Perth cattle sales

UK - An Irish airline boss and former Ireland rugby player yesterday capitalised on the recently reopened export market for live cattle from the UK. The international interest helped lift averages by £1,066 to £4,398 for 36 sold, a 72 per cent clearance rate which was one of the best for the breed for years. The sale was the breed's first since May, when the European Union lifted its 16-year BSE-related export embargo on live cattle and its shorter ten-year ban on British beef sales overseas.
