We now have 32 pedigree British Blondes in our herd.
We currently have three stock bulls: Hallfield Destiny, Ramrig Gael Force and Budore Levi.
We currently have one bull born in 2016 and five young bulls born in 2017 – see “For sale” page.
Female breeding stock:
We have 10 cows (all bar two are home-bred), as well as 5 bulling heifers and 1 young heifer born in 2017.
We have a further 5 young bull calves, which will be available for sale in Autumn 2019 and 3 heifer calves.
We currently have 53 suckler cows and 10 bulling heifers. The quality of our calves continues to be high which has translated into the top end prices at Harrison & Hetherington’s prime stock market at St Boswells market. Our current average price for our home-bred bullocks is £1,239 (218.3p per kilo) and for heifers is £1,213 (229.4p per kilo).
