United Auctions to host trade-only sale in Stirling

United Auctions will welcome 857 pedigree bulls and females forward for the live, trade-only Stirling Bull Sales from Sunday, October 17 to Tuesday, October 19, 2021.

Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers are able to re-introduce the pre-sale shows at Stirling Agricultural Centre and remove many of the previous restrictions as the Sales will remain a trade event.

In line with this updated designation for essential business events, pre-registered customers who intend to complete a transaction will be allowed to attend and enter the sales rings and the judging in the Exhibition Hall. Pedigree beef enthusiasts will be able to watch the shows online from the comfort of their homes.

An online bidding facility will be available for which all buyers must pre-register and complete the ‘Know Your Customer’ checks at least 24 hours before the sales take place.

In addition, facemasks are a legal requirement and must be worn at all times.

John Roberts, group sales director for United Auctions, said: “Many buyers are looking forward to the return of the judging at the Sales, as are we.

Buyers are reminded to pre-register and have their bidding number handy. All customers must continue to wear a facemask.

“Two highlights of the sales will be the dispersal of the Blelack herd of Aberdeen Angus females and the production sale of Lochend Charolais females.

“Both will offer breeders an excellent opportunity to invest in exceptional prize-winning bloodlines.”
