SATURDAY 10TH OCTOBER, WELSHPOOL MARKET
The 2020 autumn sales procedure has of course looked slightly different to usual and with the cancellation of one of it's regular breed sales no doubt coming as a blow to members, the BWCS was grateful to the team at Welshpool Market for hosting us on 10th October. Due to government measures in place at the time, there was an understandable reduction in both the number of entries as well as attendees on the day, however the quality of the cattle did not disappoint and prices have remained buoyant as in previous years, due in no small part to the strong demand for British White breeding females members have seen of late.
At the sale, two well-grown bulling heifers from the Castleton herd - Castleton Wynne (R) and Castleton Damsel 3 - sold for 1200gns apiece to the Emily Estate (UK) Ltd in Somerset, who have keenly supported the Society sales to build their new herd since joining the Society in September 2018. The same buyer also picked up two younger maiden heifers, a pair of yearlings from the Templar herd both sired by the 2019 Three Counties Champion Woodbastwick Doublet - Templar Jools 177 for 900gns and Templar Jill 178 for 600gns.
Existing members and newcomers looking to purchase cattle are welcome to contact the Society to discuss their requirements at any time, and the 'Cattle for Sale' section of our website continues to be updated as new adverts come in, so why not take a look!
