Stirling Bull Sales – February 2019

We have several Shorthorns forward for the show and sale in February. All of our 2017-born Angus bulls were sold on-farm.

All Shorthorn bulls offered for sale were born unassisted. We strictly assess cow docility at calving, and the dams of all bulls offered for sale have constistanly received the best scores.

All of the bulls were successfully semen tested on Tuesday 8th January. Their certificates will be available at the sale.

All four Shorthorn heifers are scanned in-calf to Balnabroich Kermit, purchased at Stirling in 2018 for 15,000 gns. They are due in May 2019.

Only one of the heifers received minimal calving assistance. Their dams all received the best scores for docility at calving.
