s. URANUS RJ d. VEINARDE (gs. PALADIN RRE VS)
Breeder: EARL Domaine Saint-Elevert (54)
|IFNAIS/Ease of calving:
- Bred by the renowned EARL Domaine St-Elevert, she was purchased as a yearling heifer at the National Limousin Show held in Nantes in September 2009. She is an exceptional female in terms of body length, pelvis and top line and combines power with femininity.
- She combines four outstanding bloodlines found within the French Herd Book over the last 10 years, a truly remarkable feat of breeding. Her pedigree includes Paladin (qualified RRE) who has one of the highest indices for milking abilities and maternal characteristics within the French Herd Book.
- Grange Gilles – her first calf, sired by Dolmen, is an exceptional bull – long, tall, powerful, excellent breed characteristics. He was sold privately to the newly formed Firtree herd where he is now senior service sire. A number of international visitors have remarked that he is amongst the best British bred bulls that they have seen.
- Grange Honneuse – retained within the Grange herd and full sister to Grange Gilles. She has all the physical characteristics of her mother and has recently been served by Gaspacho.
- Grange Inconnu – a Chabal son who is showing growth and stretch, but the combination of Chabal’s bloodline has brought increased thickness to pair with his mother’s stretch. Inconnu was twin to a heifer, both of which were reared by Dorade demonstrating her ability to produce milk.
