More than 300 Limousin cross cattle will go under the hammer at a special sale at Scotland’s Beef Event 2015.
The event at Mains of Mause, Blairgowrie, takes place on Wednesday May 27 courtesy of host farmers Peter and Pat Alexander, and son Murray.
To mark the event, the host farmers have decided to put on a special sale of 350 Limousin cross heifers with calves at foot, bulling heifers and yearling bullocks.
The Alexanders run a 1,000-cow suckler herd which is thought to be one of the largest herds of commercial Limousin cattle in the UK.
The lots on offer are: 40 heifers with spring-born calves at foot, eight heifers with autumn-born calves at foot, 20 second-calvers with spring-born calves at foot, 50 bulling heifers and 180 yearling bullocks.
The sale, which kicks off at 4pm on the day, will see lots sold in batches rather than singles and pairs.
It will be conducted jointly by United Auctions of Stirling and Lawrie and Symington of Forfar.
United Auctions executive chairman David Leggat said: “This sale will be a huge attraction as Limousin breeding stock and store cattle from Mains of Mause, reared on a high-lying Perthshire hill farm, have a well-deserved reputation for high quality and ability to go on and thrive.”
Scotland’s Beef Event is organised by the Scottish Beef Association, with the Clydesdale Bank as its main sponsor.
The event, which will follow the theme, Beef from the Hills, will run from 9am to 5pm.
