November 2021 update

So it’s 52 days till Christmas and 58 days until we say goodbye to 2021 and hello 2022. Yep, that’s my most recent way of saying holy wow where has the year gone! And what a year it has been. We are incredibly grateful for the year we have had and the enormous support that has been shown for our program and our cattle. Four sales in ten months is an huge undertaking and we certainly couldn’t have done it without the amazing team we have, huge thanks to them all and to you for your continued support and faith in our cattle. We are very much looking forward to a few months of quieter times and perhaps even a holiday.

In the meantime we have our sale results to report, next years sale dates for your diary and a November only commercial semen special offer. All the goss, all the details are below so keep scrolling.
