The Heart of Our Breeding Program

The Heart of Our Breeding Program

Kobblevale Surprise, known for her tremendous prepotency and structure, is the heart of our breeding program. We’ve built our program around daughters and grand daughters of this line. They have proven themselves in the show ring, as breeding stock and on the grid. 

We imported Kobblevale Surprise in 2007 from Australia as part of a group of cattle. All were excellent cattle but Surprise really stood out. Her length of body and excellent overall structure really caught our attention. Then as she was bred to and flushed with different sires,  we saw that her strong genetic traits were passed onto her progeny. 

 Surprise is at the larger end of the size scale within the Aberdeen breed which makes her ideal for both the commercial and seed stock markets. 

SIRE: Kobblevale Chudleigh

DAM: Binnowee Starr

 

COMMERCIAL PROGENY

What’s truly remarkable about Surprise offspring is that they can excel both in the show ring and on the grid. Over 4000 commercial cattle have been produced by Surprise’s progeny.
