The Sacombe herd was founded in 1970, by Paull and his parents, and is the oldest herd within the UK herd book. Between 1970 and 1995, 23 females were imported from Switzerland, Austria, Germany and France.
Now totaling 150 breeding females and 200 followers, stock are reared commercially from a breeding policy designed to suit our farm. With limited rainfall we breed flesh rather than feed flesh, so our cows are medium in size with high fertility, longevity, docility and natural fleshing ability – a must for today’s market.
With 18 cow families in the herd we have a wealth of genetics at our fingertips and are fortunate to have used the very best stock sires the breed has to offer.
