There are four official sales and an approved sale for Luing Cattle. The Premier Sale kicks off the season in early February (usually the first Friday of the month). This sale features a good entry of bulling heifers (often over 150 head) as well as good consignments of in-calf heifers and around 40 two-year-old bulls.
This is followed by the most recent addition of a spring breeding sale held in the third week of May at Dingwall Auction Mart in northern Scotland.
Finally comes the autumn breeding sale, which is held in the new Stirling Agricultural Centre towards the end of October. With a new sale being established at St Boswells Mart this also is at the end of October. Members have the benefit of being able to enter Luing, Sim-Luing or Luing cross cattle at any of these sales (with the exception of the Premier Sale which is only for pedigree Luing cattle).
We have a new approved sale with Cadzow Bros held at Oban Livestock Centre, the first Saturday in November.
Other sales such as the well established May breeding sale run by United Auctions or the autumn calf sale at the Oban Livestock Centre in late October will often have large consignments of Luing, Sim-Luing and Luing cross cattle forward for sale.
