We have successfully served two markets.
1. Pedigree breeders looking for top quality female genetics from which to breed show stock.
2. Farmers looking for herd sires for both dairy and beef enterprises.
Our breeding aim is to produce pedigree stock which obey this equation for our customers :
Value = Volume = Length x Breadth x Height
Whilst maintaining the Angus traits of hardiness, easy calving and suitability to low labour systems.
Small, tight and stubby cattle are culled

4. He displays lots of style and muscle.
3. Lannigan Deep Canyon ( Red Angus )

2. Calving ease and temperment good enough for Dairy.
3. Growth rates and confirmation to acheive ICBF 5 Star ratings.
4. World class pedigree. This is one of the few Leachman Grand Canyon sons available.
