Cubbyhill Angus Herd
(Est. 1966)

Welcome to a brief history of the Cubbyhill herd including influential sires used and female lines

 

Stock Bull Unigarth Pedro
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. The heifers off the best will then be retained just as has been done by the breeders of the past for a century.

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



Junior Stock Bull is the homebred Cubbyhill Eledro D123(below) who after settling all the heifers has been sold to Lord Camden, Exton Park Estate,Leicestershire.  Photo taken at 18 months.
