RUMSDEN HERD OF PEDIGREE CHAROLAIS CATTLE
The Pedigree Herd
Our Pedigree Charolais Herd at Rumsden
was dispersed in May 2012. At its peak it sonsisted of around 35 cows plus followers. Total head of cattle at
Rumsden including commercials was around 100 to 110 head, running
on a forage area of 160 acres. Cattle bred at Rumsden have excelled in
all spheres. We have produced a number of champions in the show ring
and at fatstock shows, and many pedigree herd sires as well as a large
selection of commercial bulls.
