TWO of the best known herds in the Charolais breed have joined forces to offer an elite sale of females, set to take place on Friday evening, September 17, at Beatties Pedigree Centre, Omagh.
Will Short, Woodpark, and Stuart and David Bothwell, Killadeas, have continually made headlines at both local and national Charolais sales for many years with bulls from their herds, but rarely offer females for sale. The forthcoming White Ladies Sale really does serve up some fantastic bloodlines with the best performing cow families within their herds well represented.
The majority of the females on offer are either maidens or served, with three lots having calf at foot. Top sires feature throughout the catalogue, including Corrie Alan, Battleford Laser, Deeside Gulliver, and Harestone Jaquard, to name just a few. The first daughter believed to be offered in the UK for auction by the French Champion sire Invictus should cause interest.
Everyone is welcome at the sale, which takes place at Beatties Pedigree Centre, 109 Glenpark Road, Omagh. All stock will be eligible for export.
Local accommodation is available at Glen-park Estate.
Catalogues are available by contacting auctioneer Richard Beattie on 07984 694616.
