Ervie Hereford's “50 Years in Herefords”

Breeding Cattle Production Sale

Saturday 16th November 2019

Inspection from 10am, Sale at 1pm

J & J S Douglas, Mains of Airies, Kirkcolm, Stranraer, Wigtownshire, DG9 0RD, Scotland

 

Come and view the cattle in their true natural condition, straight from the field with no pampering or preparation. Our breeding policy is to let our cows do the work and look after themselves and their calves. No creep is provided for calves before weaning, in order to measure the true maternal performance from grass. After weaning, the heifer calves are reared commercially in their full group. Each July we ultrasound our entire bull and heifer crop for muscle depth and back fat and provide full information for their EBV’s. Our cattle have genetics you can rely on for profit. They have been reared to exhibit hardiness, thriftiness and fitness and still perform well. They will work and continue to perform and will not require special treatment and feeding. They will produce calves that fill you with pride.
