We held our dispersal sale in September 2018 at Skipton Auction - details of which may still be viewed on the Aberdeen-Angus Cattle Society website.  These seven cows did not to go to the sale.  They are all due to calve at about the same time as last year and the two due in August still have calves at foot.

These cows have recently had a booster vaccine for BVD and Lepto.

Herd fertility in 2017 was excellent with 95% of cattle due to calve in the first nine weeks from late March 2018.
