For bulls and rams that will be used for breeding, go the extra mile and post pictures of their progeny is the sire known for easy calving and good muscle tone in its progeny? Have the animals won awards? Then say so mention what the breeding bull is ideal for e.g. dairy heifers or a commercial suckler herd? include: the animal’s age, weight and what vaccinations it has received does it have a quiet, easy to handle disposition? for pedigree registered rams, be sure to list the sire, weight and length Pedigree herds Make the animal you’re trying to sell shine by including a history of your pedigree herd. Has the herd won any prizes? Have you shown the animal at agricultural shows? If yes, then tell potential buyers.
