2024 Spring Sale

Our annual Spring Sale will be held on-property at “Truro”, Bellata, on Monday 26th August 2024.

On offer will be 32 stud bulls and 18 females.

The sale will be held as an auction, interfaced online with AuctionsPlus. Similar to last year, instead of running all sale lots through the ring, we will utilise videos displayed on televisions. This increases the safety of our sale, not only for people attending the auctions but also for the cattle.

An open day to view all sale lots will be held at “Truro” on Friday 28th June 2024.

More details, including all sale lots, comments and catalogue to come!
