The website has undergone a well overdue update....
We continue to have bulls approaching working age all the time for sale - so give us a call to discuss your needs - we can offer outcross pedigrees, British Friesians, genomics and great depth of pedigree from international families as well as tried and tested UK cow families, that will work in modern UK farming systems

The classifier came on 25th January and we currently have the highest scored daughter of Cogent BIll in the UK - Aintree Bill Daisychain VG87-2yrs

At the same visit we had 54 animals inspected andwe secured 8 VG -2yrs including Aintree Reward Sara VG85 who completes 11 gens VG or EX and Aintree Olympian Zandra VG86-2yrs who is a 9th gen VG or EX.

We had 35 heifers scored with 8VG, 25 GP and 2 G
