Grove SouthDevon fixture on screen

THE GROVE Invitational Sale of South Devon females normally held at Douglas Scotts farm in Glos will be held at the Three Counties Showground at Malvern on Sep 18, without cattle.

Entries from 12 herds are being expertly videoed to a uniform standard by livestock photographer Tim Bryce. Catalogues will be available from auctioneers Norton & Brooksbank (01285-841333) and will include full Signet performance figures for all animals, as well as pedigree details.

All the entries are heifers, either maiden, in-calf, or with calves-at-foot. Videos can be purchased from the auctioneers for £10/each, refundable if cattle are purchased.

Potential buyers can inspect animals on-farm by arrangement with vendors.
