The foundation Annie cow at Netherton originates from the great Northline donor cow Southland Awestruck 117R, who we believe to be one of the top daughters of TC Freedom, the great maternal bull form North America. Awestruck carries plenty of thickness and size for the UK market and is a proven breeder in Canada with show winning daughters just like herself.

The family also descends from the top performance bull TC Grid Topper 355 and is the easiest calving and fleshing family we have at Netherton, as well as ranking high among our top performance figured cattle in the herd. Annie H474 has been a great donor cow for us and embryo's and progeny can be found in many countries from her. A full brother, Netherton Archie, is stock sire in the Gear herd in Cornwall where he is breeding extremely well.

Fleur G413 title

This powerful but feminine three year old has been a stand out from birth, but with parents like Netherton Fleur D334, this year’s Royal Highland Supreme Champion, and The Moss Mr Eshton D409, this year’s Royal Highland Male Champion it is no wonder Fleur G413 has been greatly admired at this year’s shows.
