The Herd

The herd at Logierait compromises of 160 Limousin x and British Blue x cows, 90 of which calf in the Spring with 70 calving in the Autumn. A percentage of the heifers are kept as replacements annually with only a select few being bought each year to compliment the quality of the herd. The Robertsons favoured type of cow is a 3/4 Limousin x 1/4 British Blue, they maintain this is the ideal cross for breeding top quality calves. The most important qualities in the breeding stock are: shape, correctness, great character and good maternal traits.

The resulting calves are usually sold as yearling stores at United Auctions, Stirling. The pick of the show calves are sold at either the Royal Northern Spring Show, Thainstone and Caledonian Marts Premier Show and Sale in September. Details of livestock for sale will be uploaded onto the For Sale page.
