  Traditional Breed

The Traditional Breed herd is managed alongside the rest of the herd in exactly the same way. It currently comprises of three female lines namely Julia, Amorous and Silver.

In 2010 Heritage Benjamin, one of the best traditional bulls of recent times was purchased.

Benjamin was a grandson of Westood Postman, the last traditional bull to win the Royal Show. His dam was by Crown Robert II who has continually transmitted outstanding hind quarters.

Unfortunately, Benjamin was lost to a freak injury in the summer of 2011 but he has left two rears of very pleasing calves transmitting his excellent colour, fleshing, hind quarters and general quality.

His last traditional son Laxfield Ballad is a particularly exciting prospect.

It is hoped to take semen from him during 2013.
