Summer suckler calves

Duncraggan Uxbridge 218, sired by Duncraggan Rubicon 089

libraryflower view Duncraggan Uxbridge 218, sired by Duncraggan Rubicon 089 needgoat The Spring 2013 calves are dominated by Duncraggan Rubicon 089 and JSF Gauge 137W progeny. After too many white calves in the previous years, this year we have a number of outstanding solid red calves in the line-up. In fact, we only have three whites amongst them. Colour aside, it is a real even bunch, right up there to challenge the drop of 2011. We have completed the 100-day performance testing, and there is a good spread of calves that have performed very well. They continue to perform well on their mothers and still have a good three months to go until weaning in March. All-in-all we should have an outstanding line-up for our 2015 sale! pianomost  

Summer Joinings

crosssimple It’s breeding time again, and we have recently completed our timed AI programme for summer. We put down Shadybrook Powerplay 802U thickly on all the mature cows, Spry’s All Gold D052 was used across all the heifers, including a handful of daughters. We are excited to see what this combination will give us. As clean-up bulls, we are using a Spry’s All Gold D052 son, Duncraggan Smashing Stuff 103 heavily, and picking up the balance of the cows with Duncraggan Scotsman 125, a Duncraggan Oshkosh 0813 son.
