Whitebred Shorthorn Cattle Sale History

Early Whitebred Shorthorn Sales

In the early 1900’s, owners, offering Bluegreys for sale at the Newcastleton suckler sales brought along the odd Whitebred bull, which followed the Bluegreys into the ring to be sold.

As entries increased, a decision was taken to sell the White cattle immediately following the Bluegrey sale, but even this arrangement failed to cope with the escalating entries, as the popularity and demand for these cattle soared. The system eventually got out of hand which necessitated a special day being allocated specifically for the sale of Whitebred Shorthorn cattle.

Official Association sales were held at Newcastleton and Bellingham in Autumn 1964 with catalogues produced for each sale.

The first show and sale at Carlisle was held in Spring 1965 with George Mitchinson and George Walton acting as judges.
