A leading agricultural auctioneer is looking forward to welcoming buyers and sellers back into its mart next month.
Harrison & Hetherington will hold its spring pedigree bull sales of major breeds between May 7 and May 22.
Some of the sales will be held in person, with online bidding running alongside, dependent on coronavirus restrictions, and timed online auctions will also take place.
The 2021 sales split over three weekends, with the Limousin sale taking place on May 7 and 8; Continental on May 14 and 15 and Traditional on May 21 and 22.
Scott Donaldson, managing director of Harrison & Hetherington, said: “We are delighted to be getting back to normal, however this will not be a full return to ringside selling.
“The theory behind restructuring the sale in this manner is to meet wishes of both the vendors and the purchasers, while ensuring the safety of all attendees.
“Vendors and purchasers keen to conduct business will be welcomed to each of the sales in-person, following all required social distancing guidelines and measures.
“All other parties or other members of the public will be able to attend and partake in the sales online, as bystanders cannot be accommodated due to restrictions.”
