victor of earn arrives at roundoak
Our new bull Victor of Earn arrived at the farm in late Autumn. Norman and Ruth are regular visitors to Braemar in the Highlands of Scottland where they were introduced to Dochy Ormiston who is the farm manager at the Queens estate in Balmoral near Ballater, Scottland. He kindly showed us round his own stock which was most interesting and then introduced us to a farmer in Perth that was selling Victor of Earn. We took a cattle trailer with us on our trip and upon seeing the beast, we decided to purchase him and brought him back to Roundoak to complete the team. Sadly we lost our lond standing bull Kier earlier in the year to old age and ill health.
The new bull has settled in well and hopefully we will see the fruits of his labour in the forthcoming twelve months.
