We now have 34 pedigree British Blondes in our herd and this year have added 4 pedigree Limousins.
We currently have two Blonde stock bulls: Ramrig Gael Force and Ramrig McGarrett.
We now also have two Limousin stock bulls: Homebyres Niven and Tweeddale Newman.
We have five young Blonde bulls born in 2018 which will be available for sale later in the year.
Female breeding stock:
We now have 15 Blonde cows (all bar two are home-bred), as well as 1 young Blonde heifer born in 2017 who will be put to the bull this year. This year, we have also purchased two Limousin bulling heifers.
In 2019, we have had a further 4 young bull calves and 4 heifer calves.
We currently have 51 suckler cows and 5 bulling heifers. With all bar one cow calved , our calving has been the usual mix of success and visits from the vet, and all are now out enjoying the spring sunshine.
We sell our finished animals through Harrison & Hetherington’s St Boswell’s market and direct to Scotbeef.
