Laura’s Pedigree Herd
Laura’s own pedigree Simmental herd runs under the Garmouth prefix and was founded in October 2010 when she was given a 9 month old heifer called Corskie Clover for her 15th birthday.
Clover had a very successful showing career over 2011, 2013 and 2014 picking up many prizes and championships. In October 2013 she had her first calf, Garmouth Clover’s Elderflower. The two of them were shown together the following year and was placed 1st at the Royal Highland Show and was also declared as the Best Cow with Calf at foot within the breed. Elderflower herself has also had a very successful showing career including winning an Interbreed Continental Championship at a local show at only 9 months old!
And most recently in 2015 she was Reserve Junior Female Champion at the Royal Highland Show.
For Christmas in 2014 Laura was given another heifer, Corskie Fame, she went onto win red rosettes at the local shows in 2015. In April 2015 Laura made her first purchase for the herd and at the Leading Ladies Sale which is held at Carlisle bought Sterling Verity’s Dumandy who had Stirling Dumandy’s Glory at foot for 4,200gns. They were also shown locally during the summer and were both placed first on several occasions.
At the start 2016, Clover had another heifer calf, Garmouth Clover’s Honeysuckle who is by the 45,000gns Bel Dhu Capercaillie so it is hoped she has a bright future ahead of her.
