Whitebred Shorthorn Autumn Sale 2017
Friday 10th November 2017
Blackburn Milkybar - 5,000gns
The autumn show and sale of Whitebred Shorthorn cattle was
buoyant with a good show of stock and a good number of buyers
determined to purchase. There were six bulls and eleven heifers
entered with only one heifer missing on the day. All those
forward, were sold.
It was wonderful to welcome a new judge for this sale in Mr
Andrew Ions, a third generation breeder of Whitebred Shorthorn,
who went on to purchase two very nice 2016 born heifers to
add to his herd.
