Hon Gerald Turton quoted ……..

‘2020 has been a tough year for all with COVID19, especially for farming and what with limited opportunities to sell stock. Therefore we welcomed the opportunity for the Stirling Sale this February and being able to showcase some of our Upsall Shorthorns.

The Bulls went up to Stirling, with George and Maureen McCulloch, our Stocksman who has them looking in fine fettle.

We welcomed a great deal of support at the sale and appreciated some good feedback on the stock. Many thanks to our supporters and the buyers at the sale and we wish the owners of these fine new bulls a successful breeding this year and for many years to come.

We look forward to getting back to some sort of normality, once the government starts to lift restrictions.’
