We thought it would be in our best interest, and yours,to utilize our time and efforts in focusing our attention on this years sale offering.
One thing we added this year was to include videos of the individual lots. We have printed QRcodes along side each one to make it easy to access these videos from your mobile device. Thesevideos will also be available on www.highlandstockfarms.com.
