The Moss Mr Eshton D409

Sire: Vermilion Dateline 7078

Dam: DMM Miss Essence 22B

Semen for sale £40 a straw UK and Ireland only


Daughter- Netherton Fleur G413

The Moss Mr Eshton was bought in partnership in February 2007 at Perth for 36,000gns with James Porter of Old Glenort. He has bred exceptionally well for Netherton and Old Glenort with his heifers looking like the best crop of heifers to be bred to date at Netherton. His female offspring are incredibly feminine and his sons have grown into big, fleshy bulls, smashing weight and scanning records at Netherton.

His show season has proved fruitful and he was Aberdeen-Angus champion in 2009 at Balmoral.

His sire, Dateline, is one of America’s top performance bulls and is out of a $100,000 Leachman Right Time daughter. Dateline daughters in the Vermilion herd are truly a sight to behold. His dam equally needs no introduction. Miss essence is one of Canada’s great cows having been Canadian Show female of the year on two occasions. She is the founder of the Missie family at Netherton and bred Netherton Missie A114 who sold for a new female breed record of 30,000gns in Perth in 2007. 

Mr Eshton also sired Balmachie Keystone the 2009 Royal Highland Champion and last year’s National Male champion at Turriff. Eshton’s first crop of calves have sold to a top of 13,000gns and averaged more than £7000. A daughter of his was also reserve female champion at the National Calf Show in 2008.

At six years old The Moss Mr Eshton D409 took the overall male championship at the 2010 Royal Highland Show and also teamed up with Netherton Fleur D334 to take the interbreed pairs competition

Daughter - Netherton Fleur Y298

Imported from Canada in 1997, Cruz 11F has proved to be an exceptional breeder for Netherton, leaving correct cattle with exceptional muscling ability, suiting the modern requirements for the beef industry. Breedplan figures show that Cruz and his sons dominate the breed for retail beef yield and back fat with Cruz being in the top 10% for both traits as well as the top 5% for growth.

Cruz progeny have won numerous shows and have dominated society sales. Netherton Eastern Cruz who so to Lockerley Hall Farms privately went on to sire the reserve supreme champion at the 2003 Perth sales before selling for 7500gns. His breeding knows no bounds and following his success Netherton have retained a son, Netherton Fabulous Cruz

His female lines are also proving successful. In 1999 Netherton Lady Jane X13(a granddaughter) was reserve female champion at the Royal Highland Show. A daughter from Cruz’s second calf crop, Netherton Flora Y284 was Royal Show supreme champion in 2002 and sold in 2004 for a then record female price of £21,000.

Away from Netherton he has sired an All Ireland champion for Leo McEnroe, a Perth female champion for Messrs Stebbings and a reserve supreme champion for the Jerusalem herd.

Cruz’s carcass qualities means progeny of his are still in great demand by both pedigree and commercial breeders. Sons of his sold to a top of 10,000gns in 2008.

Dam - Netherton Rachel A132

Ronaldo was used as a junior herd sire at Netherton due to him being one of the top performance sons of Cruz, boasting a 400 day weight of 730kg and scanning an incredible EMA of 124 (17.8%).

His dam is one of the herd’s greatest donor cows bred from our top donor cow in New Zealand Rauni W 139, a daughter of the $155,000 Atahua Legacy. Rachel’s line also speaks volumes for the herd, as Rachel A073 was junior female champion at The Royal Show in 2002, while Rachel A070 was dam of the 2006 Perth October reserve champion for Balmachie who later sold for 11,000gns.

Netherton Ronaldo has now been sold privately to Robert Dick, Hardlawbank after two successful seasons at Netherton. Look out for his calves in our winter show team at the calf shows – we really think they are something very special indeed.

Dam - Netherton Frances 02

Fabulous Cruz is the breed’s leading carcass bull for sires with more than 25 progeny, making him the number one bull for RBY, number 3 for EMA and no 4 for rib fat. It is no wonder his sons are highly sought after by our commercial customers for their thickness and natural muscling.

With the breed’s two most influential sires in his pedigree, Dalrene Cruz 11F (sire) and TLA Northern Samurai (grand sire), and his mother being the 1995 undefeated show cow Netherton Frances 02 it is not surprising this bull has excelled himself.   

Fabulous Cruz had a successful show season in 2000 winning several male championships as well as standing reserve champion to his half sister Netherton Lady Jane X13 on many occasions. He also sired the female record holder Netherton Missie A114 who sold in our matron sale for £31,500 to Balmachie. His daughters in our 80th anniversary sale were keenly sought after and sold to a top of 7000gns and averaged over £4500. Sons of Fabulous Cruz have sold to 11,500gns including Oakchurch Dynamite as well as Netherton Kiwi Fab who sold to Barwise for £10,500.

Daughters have sold regularly for more than £5000 including Netherton Lady Jane C240 who ws sold privately in 2008 to Dunira Estates.

But it will be his sons for which Sovereign is remembered for, as they averaged more than £13,000 including Netherton Figo C244 who was supreme champion in 2005 and sold for 30,000gns to Coul and Kincardine making him the highest priced Aberdeen-Angus bull for 40 years.

Samurai is quite simply one of the breed’s greatest sires over the last 30 years. He was imported from Canada in 1989 after winning the 1987 Edmonton Farmfairn Show, one of Canada’s biggest show for Angus cattle. Since his arrival in the UK, he has consistently sired champions and top price cattle including Royal Show champions in 1992, 1994, 1996 and 1998 as well as Royal Highland champions in 1996, 1997 and 1998 – no other sire has had such dominance in the show ring.

Samurai has also sired two Perth champions including Netherton Fandango in 1992 and Galcantry Predator in 1997, that year Samurai sired all three of the section champions. 

His daughters have also bred consistently well for Netherton and have in turn gone on to breed many more champions and top priced animals. Some of his daughters are still used in our embryo programme.
