Pedigree Limousin Herd Sire

 

Jac

Jac is our semen sire and was spotted in France before eventually being purchased and imported. First calves are born easily, small with fine bones and begin showing his incredible natural plate at around 3 to 4 weeks of age. Very excited to see how these calves grow on!!! Double F94L.

Intrepide photographed 12/07/17 in working clothes after running out at grass with cows.

A very limited amount of semen priced at £80/straw plus VAT and shipping and has no royaty fee. Stamps his length onto his stock, easy calver, double F94L and near complete outcross. 

First sons coming this summer, very pleasing so far!

 

Our current junior herd sire is ...

 

Jupiter - .

Jupiter comes from quality bloodlines at Champeval. The sire is the great Celestin who is an objat son from show cow Voyelle who is a super female at Delage herd and is full of muscle and power. Celestin breeds quality bulls and heifers alike. The dam of Jupiter is a real eye catcher of a cow. A true quality pedigree cow, full of breed charachter, power, width, style, muscle and milk. Jupiter was suckling his mother when we bought him. He is growing into his breeding and is full of breed charachter and thick beefy shape with strong correct legs. We feel he is the bull to breed quality stock of both sexes and is surely doing so. He carries two copies of the F94L gene. First calves have been exceptionally easy calving without exception on cows and heifers and he will be put across all of our heifers from now on.

Former senior Sire - Engy

Engy was purchased at the Grand Cru sale at the French National Show 2012. Carries excellent figures for milk, calving ease and beef value. He is very long and has great width throughout and has an incedible pelvis. 

His first progeny in France are showing great promise. Picture of one of his heifer calves in the herd of his breeder is below.
