There was terrific demand for a selection of young Bulls from The Twyning Ash Herd of Richard and Julia Carter at Chelford on Saturday 11th July 2009. Due to T B movement restrictions, they were unable to sell in the Society Sale at Chelford in March, but put forward an excellent selection of superbly bred and well reared bulls which attracted considerable attention from a wide area of the Country.
