Brackenhill Farm

Brackenhill Farm, Pomeroy, Northern Ireland, has “pulled out all the stops to ensure farmers can buy with confidence at the sale”.

All 80 heifers are due from the date of sale onwards and are carrying to either:

  • Elderberry Galahad (EBY ) or:

Brackenhill Farm said: “This is a very level bunch of springing heifers with the majority coming from the West of Ireland, and all of them being beef bred. They are vaccinated for BVD and IBR.”

“There is something for everyone, whether it be lovely roan colouring that you prefer or red and black Limousin-types.”

Jalex Genes Tup Sale

Meanwhile, James Alexander has announced details of his upcoming inaugural Jalex Genes Tup sale.

The sale will take place on Friday evening (August 20th) at 7 pm on-farm at 88 Gloverstown Road, Randalstown.

Buyers will be able to select from over 50 Suffolk shearling and ram lambs (approximately 70 lots in total).

According to the breeder, entries are “guaranteed of quality, great carcasses and full of character”.

Also on offer will be Texel shearlings, True Blue Leicester shearlings, and a number of Suffolk-x-Aberfield and Sufftex shearlings.

Reports from commercial and pedigree sheep producers who have previously bought rams from the Jalex team have been excellent, with “tremendous” lambs hitting the ground and performing “exceptionally well”.

Alexander confirmed that all sheep are eligible on the day for export to UK and Ireland. “All lots over £700 will attract luck penny insurance,” he remarked.

Richard Beattie will conduct the auction – Buy at the ringside or online bidding at beattie.marteye.ie

Alexander has pioneered the launch of his own on-farm sales in recent times for both in-calf heifers and breeding sheep.
