The summer at Rawburn has been exceptional. The temperature has
been good and the moisture levels have just been enough to keep
the grass growing in front of the cattle. Harvest was the easiest
we have ever known and crops of grain and straw are in plentiful
sales have been brisk with the addition of many new customers along
with highly valued, repeat customers returning for their new sires.
A special mention should be made to Angus & Neil Jeffrey, Bielgrange,
East Lothian who returned to buy their 22nd bull from the Rawburn
sales have been strong with buyers from the UK and Europe looking
for high performance females with high health status. We are always
impressed at the research done on the UK Angus website by buyers
prior to coming to the herd.
we did not show, the 2014 show season will be very memorable with
our customers having great success at many of the major shows. Congratulations
to the Clark Family on winning the Aberdeen Angus and Interbreed
Championship at the Royal Highland Show with Rawburn Jester Eric
and Glympton Farms on securing the Royal Welsh Championship with
Glympton Glespin (Rawburn Rock Solid son).
2013 embryo programme was our most successful to date and from it
we have produced three excellent junior herd sires that we have
used in the herd in 2014.
Firebrand – Very similar to his sire Rawburn Elysium. His
Dam, Monline Felicia, was a repeat Danish National Champion.
Rainy - A son of Roth Regulator and a maternal brother to Rommel,
Randolph, Rock Solid and Rochester. He is young bull with exceptional
structural correctness and locomotion.
Boss Hogg –We have very high hopes for this son of TC Freedom.
His Dam, Hoff Blackbird, has already produced a herdsire for the
programme His quality and fantastic pedigree make him a very exciting
some previous years the 2014 born calves have had very little bad
weather to contend with. Although all of the sires have good calves,
the two sire groups that currently impress us the most are Rawburn
Black Hawk and Rawburn Boss.
