20170311_092449

Born end of April '16, this young bull is showing good width and style and is a son of a french stockbull Impair who was injured on the lorry over to the UK and subsequently only got a handful of cows in calf.  Impair is bred by Queyrol-Biterrelle and is a son of Eclair - a new bloodline. Impair showed in the small number of calvings to be very easy calving. The dam is a Sympa daughter of Usse daughter Eline who is wide and powerful and has plenty of milk as does her daughter. We hope to keep this bull breeds fine show type progeny for his purchaser Richard Stevenson..

Elderberry Magnum SOLD PRIVATELY

 

 20170311_092124

The best bull of the pen, stylish and refined and full of breed charachter. He is one of only two sons of Hamac in UK (other is also at Elderberry). Hamac is an AI sire who sold to Italy for 17,000EUR in 2014 at the French National Show in Limoges. He was a bull with extreme length and balance and breed charachter with perfect legs and feet and walked out just as you would want with free movement. We didn't hesitate to try a small quantity of his semen and he has left us with the best bull of his crop and the likewise with the female calf. The third calf from him was a bull calf born in September 2016 and coming along nicely. Hamac has been gene tested to carry calving ease, muscle and milk. Magnums dam is Elderberry Evette - the best daughter we ever bred from super easy calver Milbrook Alistair. She is from a quality dam line, her dam was Elderberry Antoinette by Goldies Terence and her sister was Reserve Overall Champion at the Red Ladies Derby at Carlisle some years ago. Evette has so far bred Elderberry Gump (below) and Elderberry Halogen (below) as well as Elderberry Jeanette who's photo is used to promote french AI sire Engy in France. Magnum in our opinion is a bull of pedigree quality. Good luck to Messrs Bourn in Lincolnshire with him.

This young bull is very long and well grown with an excellent pelvis. He would be very suitable for replacement female production.
