Society Breeding Cattle Sale 2018
The Society have arranged to hold a Society Breeding cattle sale at Melton Mowbray Market on Saturday 14th April.
This will in conjunction with their Native breed sale and the RBST Poultry sale on the same day.
We are looking at this as a sale of Full Pedigree breeding animals, be they in-calf cows, cows with calves at foot, in-calf heifers, bulling heifers, maiden heifers and breeding bulls. The stipulation with all animals is that they are registered as full pedigree, so by definition young bulls will have to have been inspected and registered.
We are also going to inspect all animals prior to entry to ensure that the cattle forward are up to the breed standards and in a condition that represents the breed to its fullest potential.
The Regional Field Officers will carry out the inspections if possible, however it may be a case that a senior judge carries out the inspection if it is impractical for the RFO’s.
The will be an entry fee of £10 + VAT. We will be using the Melton Mowbray entry form for the animals, these will be completed by the RFO’s when inspecting the animals.
Cattle need not be halter trained, however if you wish to then that’s fine. Lairage for the cattle will be available on the Friday night.
Cattle from TB4 areas won’t need to have a pre-movement test and will be allowed home from the sale if not sold, without post movement testing.
Cattle from TB1 areas will need to be pre-movement tested as usual.
Please contact your RFO if you wish to enter cattle into the sale so that inspections can be arranged.
