    Easy calving bulls for sale??

    there are plenty of easy calving charolais, the trick is to look at the dam line to see where its come from. its easy to get a heavily positive bull stick it on a hard calving cow line and you end up with a positive score that doesnt have the best of traits that goes across all breeds. then...

    Had to edit my previous post as forgot to write in "Claydon" for the better wear rates.

    Yeah 4m drill. It's the Coulter's I'm informed are expensive, but should do 3 or 4 sets of discs before they are wanted. Was just wondering about the APM ones on the claydon on the basis of how we doubled our wear rates were halved swapping from originals to APM.

    Stirling bull sale.

    Been too many sales of different breeds and reading the after action report seems to always differ from what I see with my own eyes. Sale reports tend to be creative.

    That's very true, for an October sale it was good day for Charolais if you had something there

    Stirling bull sale.

    Who knows what the reason is, I can't figure it out either. Send a bull that's well looked after ,exercised not over done and it doesn't do too well. Send a bull full of cake that's going to melt into nothing n likely be a Jaffa you make a load of money. Until the buying culture changes alot...

    Not saying there's anything wrong with your bull, just saying that's the way of the bull sales, big arses n too much cake is what buyers want even though they pretend they don't , soon as they go through the mart door their brains get left behind.

    It's always the way at any bull sale, buyers want overfed bulls as that's what they pay for,so that's what breeders do

    Stirling bull sale.

    juniors were the best classes in my opinion. all the red ticket bulls made good money thats for sure, it was a hard sale but guess october is more a buyers sale than feb sale

    Some quality Charolais for sale tommorrow, especially in the junior classes for anyone needing a bull. Mr Milne made a very good job of judging the Charolais today hard to fault his class winners.
