JAMES Alexander has just announced a full calendar of events for his Jalex cattle and sheep enterprises with 2023 looking set to be the busiest to date for the County Antrim-based farmer.
The first sale on the horizon is Jalex Select 1, when approximately 200
in-calf heifers will go under the hammer. This will take place on-farm on Saturday, April 29, starting at noon.
Once again James Little from H&H will be in the rostrum and is looking forward to this event, which is now just a few weeks away.
“The quality of the heifers for this next sale really is quite something. We have received absolutely tremendous feedback of how heifers have performed from the last sales, and given this we do anticipate strong interest. The beauty of the Jalex sales model is that the pre-sale planning and selection of bulls, etc, is quite special and on a level that we don’t often see,” James added.
Once again the Alexander team has extensively used sexed Limousin straws to maximise the number of heifer calves on board. This, coupled with a clever synchronisation plan and top quality heifers has resulted in a fantastic hit rate. There are 143 heifers due to calve in a four week window between the middle of September and October. For those who have set their sights on a really tight calving pattern there are 76 due on September 15 – 60 of these are heifer calves.
