4 bulls forward only one sold in the ring – Rigel Prospero, Rigel Pedigree sold for 2,900gns

6 females forward 4 sold to a top of 1,800gns average 1,7500gns

Despite a disappointing sale in the ring, all but one bull went to new homes and there were lots of enquiries about the breed.  Salers are again proving that they are the up and coming breed for conscientious farmers. They provide an easy care lifestyle for the busy modern day farmer.  Easy to take care of; easy calving and good foragers.
