Herd News

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 supply.

Bull 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 programme.

Female 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.

Although 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).

Our 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.

Rawburn Firebrand – Very similar to his sire Rawburn Elysium. His Dam, Monline Felicia, was a repeat Danish National Champion.

Rawburn 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.

Rawburn 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 prospect.

Unlike 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.
