Over 160 lots for Beattie’s youngstock dispersal sale

Renowned livestock auctioneer, Richard Beattie and his wife, Selina, are set to disperse over 160 young dairy stock at their forthcoming sale next week.

The sale is set to take place on Thursday, September 15th at noon at Beatties 109 Glenpark Road, Omagh.

Harrison and Hetherington will be in the rostrum with auctioneer, Glynn Lucas, in charge of proceedings.

A spokesperson told That’s Farming:

“The sale comprises 65 in-calf heifers and 100 strong bulling heifers. This is a quality group of Holstein Friesian heifers.”

“The in-calf heifers are due from January – March to an easy calving Angus. A large percentage are Dutch Holstein Friesian heifers selected for their high butterfat & protein records.”

“The bulling heifers are strong, ready to breed and mainly sired by Prehen Lancaster & Wintersell Titan. The heifers selling in this special youngstock dispersal can be described as the modern kind.”

“They are moderate in stature, have exceptionally good feet and legs, and are in excellent body condition.

The heifers are vaccinated for IBR, BVD & Lepto and are all BVD tag tested. The herd was last tested in September 2022, and heifers are export qualified. See a sales catalogue.
