Fosters Ram Sale set for Beatties

The date has been set for the 13th annual Springhill Tup Sale to be staged by John Foster and sons.

The sale will take on Thursday evening, September, 7th, at 7pm at Beatties Pedigree Centre, Omagh

According to organisers, “this sale is a firm favourite each year as commercial and pedigree breeders can be guaranteed of top quality right across all of the breeds on offer”.

The Fosters Springhill flocks of Texel, Charollais and Suffolk are noted for producing tight skinned sheep with super carcass and breed characteristics.

“As the sheep are naturally produced, buyers have confidence that they will be fit for plenty of work.”

“Each year, repeat buyers flock to the Springhill sale as they have seen first-hand just how well their rams have bred for them, with lambs topping the commercial mart trade regularly.”

These comprise Charollais, Texel, Suffolk, and Milford as well as some hybrid rams (Sufftex and Chartex) which are bred from pures on both sides.

The sale takes place at Beatties Pedigree Centre, 109 Glenpark Road, Omagh and will also be run on MartEye.
