The 'Gorse' herd of pedigree Longhorns - the oldest privately owned herd in the country - will be almost completely dispersed next 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 has had major surgery to replace damaged vertebrae in his neck which will mean a long recuperation.Click here for the catalogue, issued 18 July 2018
