THE principal sale in the local Hereford breeders’ calendar is scheduled for next Tuesday, February 9, in Dungannon Farmers Mart.
Normally promoted as the Premier Show and Sale, this event traditionally features a pre-sale competition with the entries paraded before an expert judge. Unfortunately Covid-19 restrictions do not permit the show to take place this year but perspective purchasers will have the opportunity to view the bulls on offer in their pens prior to the sale between 10.30am and 11.30am with the sale to follow at noon.
The pre-sale weighing to eliminate bulls with low growth rate and the veterinary inspection will be carried out as normal.
Buyers are asked to register with the mart on the day before the sale (telephone 028 8772 2727) and to wear face masks while on the mart premises.
Buyers may also view the sale, and will be able to bid online through the LSL online auctions portal at www.lslauctions.com
