We have just over 70 Highland cows that we now cross with a Whitebred Shorthorn to produce a quality suckler cow, selling the calves as heifers and finishing some of the bull calves which we would aim for a niche market.
Welcome to Airyolland farm,situated in the Southern Uplands of Scotland & run by Neale and Janet McQuistin.
We breed Beltex, Bluefaced Leicester and Scotch Mule sheep.
We also produce Highland cross Whitebred Shorthorn calves.
We will have 10 shearling forward in Ring 2 at the Premier Sale at Carlisle on the 17th August. Regular video stories and pictures can be viewed on our Instagram page @Airyolland. Pictures and more info to follow soon.
Beltex Beauties 2018
We have selected 12 gimmers to sell at the Beltex Beauties sale on 31st August at Carlisle. With 100 gimmers to choose from we can ensure that these are 12 well bred girls backed by some of our best bloodlines.
This year we have entered 20 pure bred registered Beltex shearlings for the sale at Kelso. This powerful pen of shearlings has a great selection of Beltex suitable to all tastes. In other words -I really like this group of tups!
We sold 10 Beltex rams at Kelso Ram sales to a top of 2000gns and to average 990gns for the 10.
Our Beltex Beauties sold tremendously well with our show gimmer Betty Boo topping our trade at 7000gns and the pen of 10 averaging £2242. This was a last chance to buy an Airyolland Beltex female this year as all our 4 crop ewes are now sold. More information here>>>
We sold 10 shearlings to a top of 2200gns and for an average of £1500 at Carlisle on Friday 10th August. Our ram lambs also sold well at 1200gns and 700gns. We have 10 more shearlings are entered for Kelso.
Our Bluefaced Leicester flock was founded in the late seventies.The focus of our breeding programme over the last thirty years has been to produce BFL sheep that are for producing mules. They are also now M.V Accredited.
