Dams

The average frame size of the cows is 5.5 to 6. With an average working weight of 650kg plus in spring whilst feeding autumn calves. The females are selected on a combination of visual assessment conducted annually by us together with the EBV’s to ensure functionality, conformation, temperament, muscularity and performance. This encompasses fertility, fat cover, calving ease and calf rearing ratio. Attention to minimise inbreeding is also important.
