We have a very exciting team of
young bulls which are available for sale from the farm and will not be entered into the Dispersal Sale.
A number of
these young bulls were photographed in August 2017, some
individually and some with their mothers'. These photographs can be
viewed on the Society's website when you click on the ebv below. You
will only see photographs if they are available as unfortunately with so
many cattle we were unable to photograph them all.
