Sale of pedigree British White breeding cattle
Melton Mowbray Market 8th & 9th September
Show and sale of pedigree British White breeding cattle, sale sections for haltered and unhaltered animals.
Cattle will be inspected by the Society upon arrival at all BWCS-supported sales. Should any animals fail inspection, buyers will be made aware at the time of sale that those particular lots will not be auctioned under the auspices of the BWCS.
Semen from four British White bulls is on the way to a cattle producer in Hungary for use in a breeding programme with predominantly Angus females. Straws in the shipment will be from Castleton Kerfuffle (pictured), Hevingham Polaris, Smarden Trident and De Beauvoir Huckleberry Finn. The Society looks forward to seeing new British White progeny in Central Europe!
Kicking off the show season with the first of the scheduled British White breed classes was South Suffolk Show on Sunday 14th May. Female and Breed Champion was three-year-old first calver Alcroft Georgia with her January-born bull calf at foot, bred and exhibited by Miss S Cook. Male and Reserve Breed Champion was Woodbastwick Drakkar from Rotac Farms.
After a tremendously supportive and engaging term as BWCS President, Mrs Nicole Kevill has stepped down as of the AGM held on 15th October 2016. Elected to take on the role is Mr Mick Wright, owner of the Castleton herd and current longest-standing member of the BWCS.
