TOISEACH BAN OF ENNERDALE.
Australian Champion Highland Bull.
The day Toiseach was born an older cattle farmer with a wealth of knowledge visited the farm. He commented on the new calf and his comments were admirable! As Toiseach was growing up we could see potential, so he was kept as a breeding bull.
When shown in two states he won Champion Highland Bull at both.
His Sire Rushmore Bracken sold for 18000 Guineas at the Oban sale in 1992. A Royal Highland Show Champion Highland Bull whose genetics were imported to Australia.
We visited Cim Fold near Oswestry in Shropshire to assess the progeny of Rushmore Bracken for ourselves. We were very pleased with their temperament, feet and conformation, so we assessed they were of a quality suitable for using Rushmore Bracken genetics in our own highland fold. We carefully selected the right Dam, a very solid , well framed, structurally sound cow who had very similar bloodlines to Susan Elders Australian Champion Cow Woodgee of Durness. The resulting offspring was Toiseach Ban – our asessments were correct and he was an ideal type of bull to carry the Ennerdale Highlands name forward.
Toiseach Ban has been a valued asset to our breeding programme. His body is solid muscle from neck to tail and he throws this in his progeny who develop magnificent carcases. Toiseach Ban is a bull with:
-All progeny Royal Show Champions
-Progeny available for viewing – photos of bull and mother available
-His progeny have all been broad ribbon champions at any Royal show they have attended. Good feet and structure from this bull are assured.
You won’t be disappointed! This Bull is all Beef.
Available in Australia Only.
