240 BRITISH FRIESIANS


Comprising the dispersal of the first class RABY herd, the property of Messrs W.R Ford & Partners, who are relinquishing the tenancy. This is a remarkable herd of 100% pure British Friesians founded 72 years ago. There are 125 milking cattle (25 Excellent & 47 Very Good), 25 served heifers due Nov.>, 68 maiden heifers/calves & 15 bulls (1 – 19m old). CUBICLE housed and on a low input ration. 49 calve Aug – Nov, 24 Dec/Jan & 40 Feb/April. Latest test shows 4.75%F, 3.36%P, SCC 140. The standards in type and conformation are impressive throughout and these are cattle with real potential. Well proven families underwrite the pedigrees and the 67 daughters of Parbury Venue EX are a feature. Top Friesian bulls used include Blackisle Glen Albyn, Garve, Maverick & Benloyal, Holmland Edward, Marshside Discovery 2, Grove Invader, Darleymoor Banner, Culverness Sealion & Lakemead Jasper & Pinnacle. This is a rare opportunity for all Friesian fans.
