Bulls for Sale


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.
