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.
