Podehole Beefeater with Aylward Broadhooks
Embryos from this breeding pair are currently available
Sire - Podehole Beefeater
Registration (UK) HB553801946
Podehole Beefeater was purchased in partnership with the late and great Jack Ramsey of Milerston at the spring Stirling Bull sales in 2010. His dam was bred at Wenmar when we were based on the Isle of Man. The Madeline female line has proved to be very successful for the Horrell's at Podehole during the development of their renowned herd. Beefeater's sire Trojan of Craigeassie was breed and interbreed champion at the Royal Highland, Great Yorkshire and East of England shows in 2011. We used and are still using Beefeater's genetics to develop our herd, most recently using him on the great Red Nan female line from Waukaru in the US, we have a lovely heifer coming through the heifers. Beefeater’s sons have proved to be excellent herd builders, following in their father and grandfathers footsteps. His daughters are very feminine and exceptional mothers, carrying on the Madeline traditions.
Dam - Aylward Broadhooks 5th
Registration (UK) HB553802007
Broadhooks goes back to the Wenmar Broadhooks female line when we were based on the Isle of Man, dating back to some of our original foundation cows purchased privately from the late James and Donald Biggar at Chapleton. This strong female line produced large framed cows with great mothering ability and lots of milk. Broadhooks produced a tremendous bull Wenmar Harkin for us in 2014, and a fantastic heifer in 2015 before she herself unfortunately met with an accident late in the summer. Wenmar Harkin was used as one of our stock bulls during 2015, 2016 and 2017 and was a chip off the old block, he is still working in a pedigree herd.
This breeding was focussed as being an insurance for us in the event of us loosing Beefeater’s genetics from our herd, we believe that is now very unlikely as his genetics are throughout our herd. Only a select few embryos are available to be offered for sale from this very rare breeding.
