Alistair produces well balanced, technically sound stock that are fast growing and easy fleshing with good breed characteristics. His daughters are particularly nice and breed extemely well.

There is a pedigree royalty of £40/registered calf.

Conventional semen is £20/straw (plus VAT and distribution) on semenstore.co.uk or if ordered direct we offer 7 staws for the price of 5!

 

Commercial quantities:

Alistair has excellent qualities for commercial and dairy usage providing suberb calving traits, having super short gestation and easy calving which means lower labour and veterinary costs, lower mortality and improved fertility. For commercial beef farming Alistair provides good quality docile stock that are easy fleshing with excellent DLWG.

For dairy herds the calving qualities and short gestation means fewer cases of required intervention and means less milk days are lost per cow and easier calvings means cows get back in calf quicker. This will save you effort, money and reducelosses.

Can you afford to use a long gestation, hard calving bull?

 

We offer conventional semen in larger quanitites at signicant discount  to DIY AI’ers , suitable for dairy or commercial use.

 Milbrook Alistair was purchased for €16,000 at Roscrea Premier Sale March 2007 making him the highest priced Limousin bull through auction in Eire in 2007. He is a son of the famous Domino and out of the hugely successful ‘Tulipe’ dam line at Milbrook that has produced several All Ireland Heifer champions. He is a long, docile and well balanced bull and was bought for his combination of looks, figures and deep pedigree.
 
His progeny have good conformation and high growth rates post weaning. His first daughters are showing all the characteristics you would be looking for in a quality female. Alistair’s Irish figures for muscle are top 1% and he is also rated five stars for docility. His English figures for Calving Value and Gestation Length are both top 1%. Indeed his calving ease is superb on both cows and heifers with calves born with low weights, unassisted and are on their feet and drinking remarkably quickly.
