Important Notice to Vendors ARRIVAL OF STOCK: As per timetable of events (page 5). PRE-SALE INSPECTION: All animals entered for the sale must be available for inspection in the Sale Premises as per the timetable of events. An Official Inspector, appointed by the Sale Society may order the rejection of any animal which, in his opinion, is below the required standard of conformation and / or condition and does not represent a good specimen of the Breed. IF THE INSPECTORS CONSIDER THERE HAS BEEN ANY PRE-INSPECTION PREPERATION DESIGNED TO DISGUISE AN UNACCEPTABLE CONDITION THAT ANIMAL WILL BE REJECTED. VETERINARY INSPECTION: The Veterinary Officer will examine all animals forward for general, health and genetic defects, and any animal with a genetic fault, disease or disorder will be REJECTED. Animals will be placed in a crush for this inspection - as required by the Veterinary Officer. The Veterinary Inspection will form an integral part of the pre-sale inspection procedure. ANY ANIMAL REJECTED DURING THE PRE-SALE INSPECTION WILL BE OFFERED IN SALE ORDER, BUT ONLY AT THE AUCTIONEERS DISCRETION. CARDS WILL BE DISPLAYED ABOVE ALL REJECTED STOCK WITH REASON FOR REJECTION. ALL BULLS - entered for the Sale MUST HAVE ACHIEVED A MINIMUM WEIGHT OF 500KG AT THE TIME OF SALE and Vendors will be responsible for the provision of certification of such minimum weight to the Panel of Inspectors, if required. The Panel may order any bull to be weighed in the sale premises. Vendors are also reminded that “All bulls over the age of 12 months shall be ringed”. All bulls must be adequately trained to lead by halter. All females, shown must be equipped with nose clips and additionally the inspectors have been instructed to reject any female showing poor or doubtful temperament. Evidence of faults of temperament, vices, etc., may lead to disqualification. The Showing of Bulls is Not Compulsory. IDENTIFICATION MARKS - The identification marks of all animals will be examined in the Sale Premises and any animal found to have faulty or illegible marks will be rejected from the Sale. Vendors are therefore recommended to check carefully the identification marks of all their entries WELL IN ADVANCE of the Sale, and to advise the Society in the event of any fault being found. THE ATTENTION OF VENDORS IS DRAWN TO THE SOCIETY’S RULE BY WHICH NO ANIMAL ONCE CATALOGUED MAY BE WITHDRAWN FROM THE SALE WITHOUT GOOD REASON, ACCEPTABLE TO THE COUNCIL. A SUMMARY FINE OF £50 WILL BE IMPOSED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE SOCIETY UPON ANY EXHIBITOR WHO INFRINGES THIS RULE. The proceeds of sale are guaranteed by the Auctioneers, who will account to Vendors on the day of the Sale. Such guarantee, however, does not extend to the animals sold for export, to which special conditions apply. MINIMUM SELLING PRICE - There will be a Minimum Selling Price of 1,500 guineas on each bull presented for sale - i.e. if no opening bid of 1500gs is received for any particular lot, that lot will be passed out of the ring unsold.


8

RESERVE PRICES: Vendors shall have the right to refuse to accept the final bid for their animals. The auctioneers reserve the right to charge half commission on the amount of the final bid in the case of animals which fail to reach the Vendors reserve price. All animals will be sold in guineas (105 pence) and a commission of 5% will be charged by the Auctioneers on all sales. No animal may be sold privately before being passed through the auction ring and FULL COMMISSION will be charged on the sale of any animal sold by private treaty after the auction. All such transactions MUST BE PASSED THROUGH THE AUCTIONEERS OFFICE. A SPECIAL LEVY - amounting to TWO PER CENT of the Sale price (after the deduction of Auctioneer’s commission) will be charged by the Society on the sale of ALL animals. This levy will be deducted from the Vendor’s statements by the Auctioneers, before settlement, and paid to the Blonde d’Aquitaine Breeders Society of Great Britain.

Profit from EBVS A great new tool is now available to beef producers and breeders to help them select productive breeding animals with confidence. This development comes as part of MLC’s “Beef breeder” Service. Records on breeding animals are now presented as ESTIMATED BREEDING VALUES (EBVs) and these describe the animal and how it will breed. EBVs are the recognised method for describing beef cattle performance and are now widely used in many leading cattle countries. EBVs are quoted in the measuring units e.g. kg. These are various key features:

All Comparisons are against a base figure for the breed. The average

of the breed in 1980 was chosen, where the average is described as zero.

Any animal with a plus value is above the breed base (heavier, fatter,

more muscled, etc.) and any animal with a minus value is below the breed base (lighter, less fat or less muscular, etc.)

The EBVs are built up from records on the animal concerned, its

parents, offspring (if any) and other relatives. So, they are very robust. Using EBVs takes out the confusing effects of different managements, herds, seasons and years, so that animals can be compared across a breed with confidence. Measures with very low (less than 20 per cent) levels of accuracy are not published.

British farmers urged to seize new opportunities rOperating in a truly global marketplace

rSurviving without

Government subsidy By Alistair Driver FARMING Minister Jim Paice has challenged British farmers to ‘set the industry on fire’by leaving the past behind and embracing the opportunities on offer in today’s marketplace. Speaking at the Oxford Farming Conference, Mr Paice laid out his vision for British farming based on seeking out new global markets, innovating using all available technologies and ultimately thriving without the support of direct subsidies. He also revealed Defra would be hosting an ‘innovation summit’ in London in March followed by a series of ‘practical’regional events. He dismissed the view of farming ‘as a quaint old industry’ and urged farmers to look to the future. “We can keep the cosy image of Buttercup in the field producing a few litres a day and the bucolic farmer leaning on his gate We can sentimentalise farmers as small players in a market dominated by supermarkets at home and multinational conglomerates abroad,”he said. “Or we can set this industry on fire and take the opportunities and face the reality they provide.”

He insisted his comments were not about advocating ‘big, corporate’ farms over ‘small, family’ businesses: “It is about attitude: whether to pine for the old days of government intervention and protection, or to face the challenges.” At the heart of his speech was the need for the industry to use ‘the best research, technology and knowledge transfer we can get’ to help boost production, while protecting resources and biodiversity.

Beef’s unique selling point

Driving ambition Mr Paice identified the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) as the ‘professional body’ to drive the industry forward in this area and had asked AHDB chairman John Godfrey to address how this could be achieved. He stressed the industry needed to accept it was competing in a global food marketplace and to seek out export opportunities ‘where we are most competitive’. Shadow Defra Secretary Mary Creagh said food was ‘one of the defining political issues of this century’, but criticised the Government for failing to address all the issues surrounding it. Highlighting the role farming and food can play in stimulating economic recovery, she warned of increasing food poverty in the UK against a backdrop of rising food prices, exacerbated, she claimed, by commodity speculation. NFU president Peter Kendall said he was heartened by Mr Paice’s message.
