This batch includes a full sister to Jalex Mya, who was Limousin Champion and Reserve Interbreed Champion at the recent Balmoral Show.

The bulk of the heifers on offer are described by seller James Alexander as: “Ideal replacements for any suckler enterprise, originating in beef herds and carefully matched to easy calving proven bulls. We are always focused on consistently producing quality heifers, and this sale will have springers from £1400 up. As always, we are only too happy to arrange delivery to the UK and Republic of Ireland.”

Also featured are a selection of approximately 40 top drawer heifers which have the potential to produce show quality calves for those bitten by the showing bug! These are mainly red roans, with a number of flashy black and blue ladies included.

The only maiden heifer in this auction is “Big Day Out” who was the recent Commercial Champion at Balmoral Show. She would be ideal for the winter fatstock shows, or bring her home and plan your flushing programme before you put her in calf!
