Pedigree Cattle for Sale
We will have Luing heifers for sale at the Breed Society Sale at Castle Douglas in 2013.
We have Luing bulls and Luing, Sim-Luing and Aberdeen Angus cross bulling heifers for sale privately.
We diversified into beef in 2005 when we established a herd of pedigree Luings. The Luing is a composite breed based on the Shorthorn and the Highland breeds developed on the Island of Luing in the latter half of the 20th Century.

From our point of view they tick all the boxes being:
We currently have around 150 suckler cows. They are either bred pure to Luing bulls (visit the Luing Cattle Society website ) and we also cross them with Simmental and Aberdeen Angus bulls.
The bulls we are using currently are Luings Drinkstone Hamilton and College Valley Kasper, Aberdeen Angus Longbank Emperor and Simmental bull, Courance Bullet. We aim to breed for length and fleshing ability as well as the key maternal traits such as udder and teat conformation and genetic traits such as tenderness.
