Whitebred Shorthorn Autumn Sale 2017

Friday 10th November 2017

Blackburn Milkybar

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.
