United Auctions will welcome a grand entry of 767 pedigree bulls and females forward for the Stirling Bull Sales at Stirling Agricultural Centre next month.

Hosted by Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers, the February Bull Sales will feature eight breeds of pedigree cattle on show and sale with week one held from Sunday, February 6 to Monday, February 7 and week two running from Sunday, February 20 to Tuesday, February 22, 2022.

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

The two-week event will be held under Scottish Government guidance as a designated business event.

Customers who intend to buy livestock must pre-register. Although physical distancing requirements are due to be eased at the end of January in Scotland, all attendees are still legally required to wear a facemask at all times.

An online bidding facility will be available for which all buyers must pre-register for and complete the ‘Know Your Customer’ checks at least 24 hours before the sales take place.

The Bull Sales can also be viewed online for those who prefer to – or need to – stay at home.

John Roberts, group sales director for United Auctions, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome back the pre-sale shows to the February Bull Sales and look forward to feeling the buzz return to the Agricultural Centre.

“We want to remind anyone displaying any Covid-19 symptoms or isolating in line with the 10-day period requirement that they must not attend any sales.

“Buyers must pre-register and have their bidding number readily available. Everyone should continue to wear a facemask at all times to protect themselves and other people.”
