The BWCS Spring Sale of breeding cattle and stores, due to be held on 4th April, has unfortunately had to be suspended due to new restrictions imposed on cattle markets in light of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Melton Mowbray Market have, as always, been incredibly helpful and had very much been hoping to be able to hold this sale but the decision not to continue with events other than their regular Tuesday market had to be taken, and the Society is fully supportive of this.
The animals which were entered into the sale are listed below and are still available from vendors privately - if you are interested in purchasing any of these cattle please contact the breeder/s directly using the information given.
