Member Notice – Cattle for Sale

Richard Watling is looking to sell his cattle and provided the following details:

There are 20 mixed age cows, 10 rising 2 year heifers and 10 heifer calves. They are either Freisian or Freisian x Jersey. Plus one Freisian bull about 6 years old and quite tame.

I have run this property near Kaitaia organically since 1985 but have not kept up organic certification in the last few years. I am now planning to retire.

I am keen to sell before winter sets in and would want to sell in lots of 10 if possible. I am prepared to overwinter a few animals if needed. My phone number is 09 4080281 (evenings).
