Having taken Paris’ SIMA show by storm earlier this year, Limousin bull Sauvignon, owned by the Crawford Brothers is set to have a star role at this year’s Beef Expo, Skipton on 17 May.

Sauvignon will take pride of place on a stand booked by the Crawfords to promote semen from their stock bulls to the export market.

Earlier this year Sauvignon and herdmate Vigot became the first Limousin bulls in the UK to have sexed semen available. Later this year Sauvignon will appear at the Royal Highland, Royal and Royal Welsh shows.

The only other breeder taking space at is Phil Hallhead of Norbreck Genetics who will be exhibiting pedigree Belgian Blue cattle by sires from which he has semen available.
