Strict controls continue at Stirling Bull Sales

United Auctions’ strict regulations and security controls will continue for the May Stirling Bull Sales, in line with Scottish Government guidance.

Wednesday, 28th April 2021, 8:33 am

Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers will see 248 pedigree bulls and females forward for the live sales at Stirling Agricultural Centre from Sunday, 2nd to Monday, 3rd May 2021.

With no pre-sale show, pedigree Charolais and Simmental cattle will go under the hammer on Sunday afternoon with a full sale day on Monday, starting with Salers females at 11am and followed by Limousin, Salers, Hereford and Beef Shorthorn bulls. The event closes with the sale of Aberdeen Angus bulls and females on Monday afternoon.

The Stirling Bull Sales is supported by Galbraith, Scotland’s leading independent property consultancy.

Once again, no spectators will be allowed to attend the sales and entry to the ring and tic tac will only be permitted to pre-registered customers who have a genuine intention to buy pedigree cattle.

To ensure everyone’s safety, all pre-registered buyers must wear a facemask at all times and maintain the 2m social distancing rule.

There is a strict one customer per farming enterprise policy. No under 16’s are permitted to attend and there will be reduced catering and no bar.

John Roberts, Group Sales Director for United Auctions, said: “We’re operating under the same restrictions and Scottish Government guidance as we were in February.

“Our staff and customer safety continues to be of paramount importance and we urge everyone to abide by our regulations, which will be enforced.”

Should buyer registrations exceed capacity, a ballot will be drawn to determine attendance.

An online bidding facility will be available for which all buyers must pre-register via https://www.uagroup.co.uk/sale-attendance and complete the ‘Know Your Customer’ checks in good time before the Sales take place.
