The 'Gorse' herd of pedigree Longhorns - the oldest privately owned herd in the country - will be almost completely dispersed on Saturday 18 August 2018, removed to Worcester Market for the convenience of sale. Approximately 50 head will be offered for sale.
There is a requirement by the Brigg family to reduce the herd as Joshua is having major surgery to replace damaged vertebrae in his neck which will mean a long recuperation.
Further details will be announced in due course via the website, newsletters and McCartneys but put the date in your diaries to secure bloodlines from this special herd.
The sale will be livestreamed via the McCartneys website for those who cannot attend.
