The first limousins to hit the ground at Meadowrig were two embryo heifers by Broadmeadows Luigi out of Woodhouse Sara, herself an embryo from the very successful breeding line of Uplands Carmine. Following that, important additions were made to the herd during 2011 in the form of Brockhurst Fuzzy, a daughter of Ronick Mcainsi purchased for 7000 gns as a 6 month old calf and Brockhurst Freestyle purchased as a 4 month old calf out of Reseda for 5 600 gns. Haltcliffe Epson was then purchased at the on-farm Haltcliffe production sale for 15 000 gns. She was purchased for her shape, style and the depth of her pedigree. Further exiciting additions to our herd were made in the form of three imported heifers from top herds in France. Fatima, Facetie and Fée were bought for their exceptional growth, style and breeding and we are very hopeful that these heifers will make important contributions to our herd in the future. in 2012, Miscombe Eider joined the line up at Meadowrig bringing with her an outstanding pedigree filled with some of the breed's greats including Jersey, Jockey, Titan, Oxygene combined with the outstanding breeding line of Broadmeadows Jay.
Epson was purchased for 15 000gns at the on-farm Haltcliffe sale in the Summer of 2011. She has great shape and has that extremely successful combination of Sympa x Cloughhead Umpire in her pedigree. Epson had a lovely heifer by Co-Pilot which we have retained for breeding. Her next calf is the pick of the Spring born 2014 calves, a bull calf by Festival. We think a lot of this young cow.
