An exciting opportunity for someone wanting to get in to the top end pedigree beef sector has been announced this week. The famous pedigree Blelack enterprise which is situated on Royal Deeside near Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, is on the market through CKD Galbraith.
Simon Brown, handling the sale for CKD Galbraith said: “We have been instructed to sell Blelack farm along with the famous herds of Aberdeen Angus, Charolais and Shorthorn cattle in conjunction with United Auctions. Blelack is situated in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of Scotland and the farm has been producing top class pedigree cattle for over 45 years.”
The land at Blelack sits between 750 and 1000 feet above sea level and is principally categorised as being Grade 3(2) by the James Hutton Institute for Soil Research. The farmland provides an excellent mix of good quality arable and grazing ground with an additional area of well sheltered free draining permanent pasture which is suitable for outwintering cattle. The farmland extends to approximately 449.87 acres (182 Hectares) and is accessed by a network of farm tracks and a minor public road.
The sale also includes an attractive five bedroom farmhouse, Rose Cottage which is situated in a private and scenic position to the north of the farm steading. There are a further three three bedroom cottages and a one bedroom flat at Blelack Farm as well as an extensive range of modern and traditional farm buildings which provide housing for over 400 head of cattle.
David Leggat, United Auctions’ Executive Chairman, said: “The sale of Blelack and the herds of Aberdeen Angus, Charolais and Shorthorn cattle is a unique opportunity for anyone wishing to enter the pedigree cattle breeding business at the highest level as the herds have a consistent record of producing top grade bulls and females. Blelack has achieved the highest number of Aberdeen Angus champions and reserve champions at Perth and subsequently the Stirling Bull Sales with a total of 12 in all.”
