Carlisle to host Blelack Charolais Autumn Calving Dispersal

As part of the 36th British Charolais Cattle Society’s Spring Show and Sale, Harrison & Hetherington are delighted to announce the complete dispersal sale of the Autumn calving portion of the renowned Blelack Herd.

The Blelack Charolais herd was founded in 1970 by the Massie’s who today produce quality modern British Charolais Cattle. They have a consistent record of producing top class bulls and females, often winning championship prizes at shows across the country, and have achieved numerous top prices at the Stirling Bull Sales. There are 33 pedigree British Charolais cows & heifers served and/or suckling (27 calves), and 9 in-calf heifers. This is all of the cattle from the Autumn Calving herd none have been retained.

This sale is part of the Society’s 36th Spring Show and Sales which features in total 215 British Charolais Cattle, 164 Bulls and 50 females. The stock being sold from the Blelack Herd also gives customers an opportunity to buy a female with a young bull at foot, and bring it on to maturity themselves in natural conditions, without being forced, which can often be the case.

Scott Donaldson Harrison and Hetherington’s Sales Director said:
“This sale is another sale in the highly prestigious pedigree Charolais dispersal sales we have been privileged to hold here at Borderway in recent years, which have included the Fairway, Rumsden, and Mowbraypark dispersal sales and the on-farm Wesley dispersal sale.

“Blelack is synonymous with top show cattle and top EBV values, so purchasers are being given a very rare opportunity to buy top genetics from a top breeder such as Graeme Massie.”

These comments were reiterated by David Benson of the British Charolais Cattle Society who saw the stock for sale earlier this month.

“This is one of our noted and respected Charolais Cattle breeders, and the bloodlines are very influential in modern British Charolais genetics.

“They are cattle of outstanding quality which will certainly make their mark in any breeding herd, and have potential as foundation females for new breeders looking to start their own Charolais Herd.”

Harrison and Hetherington’s auction regularly attracts buyers from the length and breadth of the UK, however, their new on-line bidding system will open the screens and showcase this Charolais sale to interested global purchasers.
