Netherton are pleased to announce  in partnership with John Lascelles of the Balmachie herd, the purchase of Netherton Mr Brazilian E377. This five year-old bull bought from Mr Acton of Housesteads Angus is a proven easy calver who is breeding consistently good calves with plenty of thickness and character. He is a high frame score 6 low 7 bull out of the record price female in the breed Netherton Missie A114 who sold for 31,500. Missie is sired by Netherton Fabulous Cruz, who like his father Dalrene Cruz, dominates the breed for muscle and his dam Netherton Frances O2 was maybe the best ever TLA Northern Samurai daughter ever bred at Netherton who was the undefeated show cow of 1995. Netherton Missie A114’s dam, Netherton Missie Y288, is a TC Stockman 365 daughter who sold for 16,800 who herself is a daughter of the twice Canadian show female of the year DMM Miss Essence 22B who is also the dam of The Moss Mr Eshton D409.

Netherton Missie A114 has been a real good breeder with her daughters producing many of our top animals of which two full sisters of Netherton Mr Brazilian, who were in our donor programme, have been sold this year to The Moss and Saville herds privately and another was overall Champion at the National Show a few years back for Balmachie.

Mr Brazilian’s sire is The Moss Florian who has bred two female National calf champions and his sons have sold to 11,000. He is an easy calving bull whose daughters have perfect udders and loads of milk. More details on The Moss Florian can be found on our sires page.

Mr Brazilain E377 is in Cogent now and world-wide semen is now available for sale.

We are also pleased to announce the sale of a half share of Nethertton Big Edition H460 to Balmachie for an undisclosed fee. Big Edition is a product of our embryo programme and is sired by the world-wide performance sire Hoff Limited Edition and is out of one of Canada's elite performance cows Big Sky Beauty 009. His first crop of calves at Netherton have been admired by many and a daughter of his was 1st prize at the Stars of the Future calf show at Forfar and another was calf champion at Perth Show.

Netherton take championship at Carlisle and sell at 4000gns twice

A solid day’s trade in Carlisle this month at the Angus sale saw us take the overall championship and sell both bulls for 4000gns each. Our first was Netherton Knightrider G480, who stood junior and overall champion under judge Wanda Hobbs. Knightrider is the highest performance son of the carcass bull Netherton Fabulous Cruz Y300. He was our show calf last year and was 1st prize at Braco and Perth Shows and 2nd at Grantown. His two grand dams were two of the most influential cows in the herd; Frances O2 who was regarded by many as the best cow that we have ever bred and was our undefeated show cow in 1995 and Kim of Fordafourie, who was sold for the breed record equalling price of 16,000gns in 2004. More than 250,000 of progeny has been sold from her and she was also the dam of last year’s Royal Highland Show Supreme Champion. Knightrider sold to HR Graham and Son, Gorebridge, Midlothian.
