OCTOBER 2018 SHOW & SALE - UNREGISTERED SECTION

26 September 2018

The New Commercial Highland Cattle Sale: Oban Mart

United Auctions is supporting the Highland Cattle Society in

over seeing a new section to take place alongside the annual autumn.

Show on Sunday 7th and Sale Monday 8th October.

The Monday sale is now open to unhaltered/unregistered, horned or dehorned pure bred

females (upto 7 years), unhaltered/unregistered, horned or dehorned and castrated pure bred

males. These will be sold following the pedigree sale.

More animals offered means more appeal to buyers, better prices

and more future sales for wider representation of the Highland

Breed.

If breeders wish to exploit growing awareness of Highland beef

quality, and the advantages of crossbreeding with hardy low-input

Highlanders, events such as this will be part of the arsenal.

So............calling all members!!

Perhaps you are holding bullocks to be finished for the Christmas

market and later, or mature females that you do not wish to show?

Perhaps you will be overstocked this winter?

Phone Raymond Kennedy on 07545 207927

After all, Oban is the place to sell Highlanders!
