Breeding Duty 2016
After 30 days the cleanup breeding will belong to Hercules #291. His dam is another of our cows that transferred to Aaron Seeger who manages the herd in Delta. Hercules's dam was artificially inseminated from semen collected from the late registered Glenfiddich Pericles # 21137 from the Blegen Galloway herd in Canada. Pericles was a champion at beef exhibitions in Canada and the US. His mature weight was 2566 pounds. Hercules is really developing well and is not yet a year old. He will be the lead bull next year.
I go into some of this detail so you know that a lot of intentionality goes into managing a quality beef herd and producing dependable, good natured breed stock that is still good eating.
