Next week’s May Multi-Breed Show and Sale will be the largest and most comprehensive selection yet at United Auctions’ (UA’s) Stirling Agricultural Centre.
253 pedigree bulls and females will be going under the hammer on Monday 7 May 2012 at the annual one-day event, which has been going from strength to strength over the past five years.
And this year will be the first time UA stages a breed society sale of Longhorns, one of the UK’s most ancient cattle breeds.
The May Multi-Breed Sale continues to be supported by Towergate Insurance.
It is run in conjunction with a special May show and of sale of commercial beef breeding cattle, which is sponsored by Carrs Billington who opened a new country store at the Stirling Agricultural Centre in March last year.
Full catalogue details can be downloaded from UA’s homepage www.uagroup.co.uk. The Multi-Breed Sale will be broadcast live on the webcam via UA’s website and as-it-happens news will be posted on the company’s Facebook page.
The Charolais, Simmental, Limousin, Aberdeen Angus, Beef Shorthorn and Longhorn breeds are all sold under the auspices of their respective breed societies.
Opportunities for photographs are available from Sunday 6 May.
