ITALIENNE:

Bred by Mme de Blomac, she was purchased in 1977 and within her pedigree, the famed sire Bartissol can be found. She was a prolific breeder of females, most notably:

Grange Racquel – consistently produced progeny with conformation and milking abilities. A number of daughters were exported to Ireland, as well as some being included in the first British export of animals ever made to The USA in 1985.

Grange Mionia – sold at the on-farm sale held in 1999, she was one of the first Tanholm Claus daughters to be born in the UK (her sire being the renowned Danish bull, who sired numerous show champions).  Mionia combined greater thickness due to her sire’s bloodlines, yet retained growth from her mother’s genetics.

Grange Atlantis – a Funambule daughter who was exported to the USA in the second and final ever export made from the UK in 1986. Sold as a maiden heifer, she was specifically selected by the purchasers in order to obtain her mother’s bloodline.

Grange Gibralter – an elegant, feminine cow with stretch, growth and great milking abilities. She produced a number of daughters sharing these characteristics which went on to be sold to a number of pedigree breeders in the UK and Ireland.

Grange Hovenia–combined the bloodlines of Italienne with Uplands Dai (who included Ami, Prince and the famous show cow Senorita in his pedigree).
