Monday 17th SeptemberMajor Reduction Sale of Beef Shorthorn Breeding Cattle from the Renowned Lowther Herd
An on-farm sale for Charles Lowther of 45 pedigree and grade-register Beef Shorthorn cows, calved & in-calf heifers & yearling heifers with 23 calves at foot
The Lowther herd needs no introduction with its tremendous record of show and sale successes based on an innovative breeding policy embracing the best of home and overseas genetics.
Animals from all the herd`s famous cow families are represented in the sale which is a major reduction due to a change of focus for Charles. In the sale is the mother of the senior bull being shown at this year`s Royal Highland and Great Yorkshire Shows as well as the sister of the 2015 Great Yorkshire Junior Champion.
The Lowther herd has, of course, enjoyed many successes at the national shows over the last decade with regular class wins at both the Royal Highland and Great Yorkshire. In 2015 Lowther Gervase was Overall Supreme Champion at the February Stirling Bull Sales following on Lowther Eclipse who was Senior Bull Champion at the February Stirling Bull Sales 2013. As well as this the herd has enjoyed many successes at the Stirling Autumn Sale and the Carlisle Spring Sale, taking eight female championships between these two premier events.
This sale is a wonderful opportunity for herds old and new to tap into the results of this policy. Bulls that the cows and heifers are in calf to include Lowther Konan, the highest muscle score Zetor bull on the index as well as the new herd purchase, Chapleton Kipling.
The fundamental breeding principals of the herd have always been to concentrate on good feet, udders, spring of rib and temperament whilst developing muscle mass, growth and ease of fleshing.
