It is always our aim to offer high quality Angus bulls to meet our client’s demands and industry requirements so it was pleasing to hear the positive feedback and supportive comments of this year’s sale line up. We thank all purchasers and under bidders in making our sale a record success. The pleasing result of our 2016 sale was topped only by the rain that fell the following day!
