The Killiworgie Herd Story So Far
The herd was founded in 1998. We began with the purchase of 6 cows from the Pencarrow Herd dispersal including Hunsland Kleie by Hockenhull Sikorsky who has gone on to establish the most influential female line.
Daughters Katy and Natasha have produced 8 Grand-daughters which have provided 5 Great Grand-Daughters & 1 Great Great Grand-Daughter!
The remaining 5 were Huntsland Fauna 3rd, Ordgar Verity and her daughter Bradbridge Verity, Tatham Petra 4th and St Lawrence Miss Elley and their progeny are still represented in the herd.
As our passion for the breed has grown, we have acquired several diverse bloodlines which have proved a great asset to the improvement of our herd.
Stock bulls purchased : Roadhill Joshua, Starline Lochinvar, Corskie Reward and our current bull Lakeside Warrior have all made their contribution to make our award winning herd the success is it today.
We farm 100 acres of good grassland, making our own silage and buying in all our feedstuffs and straw.
We are situated in the middle of cornwall approximately 1.5 miles from the main A30.
We have six children and 6 grandchildren.
We also run to Fish & Chip shops which three of our children help to run.
One son also works part-time on the farm.
Daniel also enjoys showing the cattle at local shows although this year 2012 we raided across the border to the Devon County show!
