The herd is run on strictly commercial lines in order to produce cattle for that market.
EBV; No testing is entertained as this leads to pushing stock which is detrimental to fertility and longevity in breeding stock.Calves are deliberately not creep fed while at grass with their dams so that on coming in for the winter an Actual Breeding Value can be obtained.

SALES; Most cattle are sold ex farm at reasonable rates. Young bulls usually for sale throughout the year.
