Photo taken July 2017. We have 14 heifer calves from our spring calving cows, and have therefore decided to offer 5 for general sale. Full photographs and detail pages will be added to the site soon.

Photo taken September 2019. Jilt 105 is sired by Milerston Dolomite, I had hoped he would encourage her dam to produce me a light roan heifer, but she had the last say. Jilt J105 has however produced me two roan heifer calves so far and done a great job on both of them. Watch out for Jilt N10 who is a bit special, she was sired by Wenmar Lootah who has developed into a great young stock bull working on a pedigree herd in the north.

Photo taken September 2019. Jilt L138 will be retained to strengthen our Jilt female line. We unfortunately lost her mother in early 2018 so L138 is going nowhere! Jilt L138 has grown on well this year and looks as though she will follow in her mothers footprints. I just love my Jilt cow family with their strength, size and spirit.

Photo taken July 2016. Melody F038 is bred from a home bred cow 006 from this exceptional female line. She has already proven her mothering abilitiy and achieved a classiication of EX90. F038 is not the biggest of our cows, but she does a great job on her calves, has a quiet tempernment and follows her mother's and grandmother's traits.

Photo taken early September 2019. Nonpariel F044 is from an exceptional female line, they just produces great heifer calves. Her grandmother was sold rising 8 years to establish a new herd in Ireland. F044's mother was one of my favourites, but she was also sold in 2016 to establish another new herd. F044's calf from 2019 was our best bull calf until an accident in the shed prior to turnout. We almost parted with F044 this summer but decided to squeeze her into our longer term plans. She is likely to be with us now for some time.

Photo taken September 2019. Godiva L141 will be retained to develop a new Godiva female line; her sire Meatpaker is a tremendous deep easy fleshing bull. Godiva L141 has a full brother in our herd Wenmar Leandro, look up his profile page. He has been working with a large group of our cows this year and we are trying to decide which of the two of them to retain. Godiva L141 is expected to calve in the spring. Hopefully we will get a calf as good as her and her brother.

Photo taken September 2019. Jilt K119 is another tremendous addition to this very strong female line. She looks every bit as strong as her mother at her age, who we lost in the spring of 2018. Jilt K119 has reared us a lovelly roan bull calf and we only wish that we had the space to run him on as a bull. Fingers crossed next year for a heifer from her!

Photo taken October 2018. Wenmar Melita Rose M164 is certainlty one we would like to keep, unless someone decides to make us an offer we cannot refuse. Her breeding from Crooked Post Stockman and Patents mother Waukaru Melita Rose could not be better (see her full ET brother's details Wenmar Major).

Photo taken September 2019. Melody L140 will be retained with her mother and her full sister Melody N002 to strengthen our Melody female line as we rebuild the herd size following our recent move. We have a lot of faith in this strong milky female line, they are a pleasure to work with.

Photo taken early September 2019. Nonpariel G054's sire was Wenmar Everest who is bred from the great Jilt female line. She has developed into a great cow. G054 has proved herself as a great mother and rears us a good calf each year. I just wish she would balance the book with another heifer calf. We are delighted to retain her in this strong cow family.
