Podehole Beefeater with Waukaru Red Nan
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 - Waukaru Red Nan 1049
Registration (Canadian) 24229
Red Nan is a daughter of the great Waukaru Patent, and is a full sister to Waukaru Orion who has outstanding EPD's; ranked in the top 1% for weaning weights and the top 2% for yearling weights. Red Nan has outstanding style, depth and structure, all of these traits with her breeding will be passed onto her offspring with which ever sire used. I was able to purchase ownership rights at the Waukaru sale in 2016. She is a long deep bodied cow with a fantastic clean shoulder, top line, good feet and legs and has worked extremely well for us as a donor cow. We implanted two of her embryos from this breeding thinking we may produce a future herd sire, you guessed it, we got a lovely heifer calf, we will try again Red Nan has too much to offer to ignore.
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.
