Online maiden heifer sale
This event will run in conjunction with the open day – before the online sale of Bailey’s Limousin heifers – which will be penned for viewing on the day.
The online maiden heifer sale will take place on MartEye in association with Mid Tipp Mart from June 3d to June 7th.
Bailey’s Limousins is the home of Goldies Jackpot, a sire that needs no introduction as a pedigree breeder’s bull.
This bull is available for AI through Progressive Genetics, and six of his daughters will come under the hammer at the forthcoming sale.
