There are consignors from 17 different counties in England, Scotland & Wales. The bulls are bred from dams with outstanding production, super butterfat and protein, impressive lifetime yields and excellent functional type.

Commenting on the standard of entries in advance of the sale Glyn Lucas, Dairy Auctioneer for Harrison & Hetherington, said:
“The sale catalogue is packed with dams with outstanding productive lives and incredible lifetime yields. A number of the bulls selling have been tested on genomics all with impressive indexes. Herd health is key to the success of all dairy operations, all the bulls selling have been tested free of BVD and vaccinated and are from herds with excellent herd health records.”

There are a number of factors that have recently created increased optimism in the dairy sector and on giving further details Glynn said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to sell bulls of this standard and variety. There are bulls suitable for all markets, so commercial milk producers, breeders, spring milk producers, and farmers who have heifer rearing units, will find something to suit their own specific needs.”

Recent sales at Borderway have attracted buyers from across the UK and Ireland and with such tremendous entries in this sale, it is expected that there will once again be considerable interest from all areas.
