Artificial Insemination

Semen has been collected from a large number of bulls over the years, by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and a number are available for sale from Genus at Towcester.  (0870 1622000).  

When placing an order with Genus, ask for ‘Gloucester Semen held in the name of the RBST’ and state the name and registration number of the bull required.

A cheque should accompany the order, sent direct to:

Genus Breeding Ltd, Alpha Building, Nantwich, CW5 7JW.

A maximum of 10 straws will be sold of each bull to each breeder per year.

Please note, there are problems within the industry regarding the transfer of semen between centres. It is important before ordering semen to ensure that your local centre operates in the same network as Genus at Towcester (which is the central store for semen owned by the Trust). Alternatively check that your chosen AI centre has a working transfer system from Towcester in place.

Bishton Herd Dispersal

The Bishton Herd of Gloucesters is for sale, 8 cows, plus a total of 8 calves at foot, 3 maiden heifers & 1 bull. Please consult the online Herd Book for full pedigrees.

All female calves are registered & all male calves (bar 1 very recent) are castrated. All cows have been running with bull Old Ley Abacus. Most cows are dehorned (apart from Nibsheath Sarah-Jane) & most calves born in the Spring have been dehorned (although those from later in the year have not). 

The Carneys dehorn their cattle for safety & handling reasons, as they use them for their care farm where they have vulnerable people visiting. The cattle are exceptionally quiet & easy to handle (but not halter trained, apart from some older ones bought into the herd).

TB free herd in a one year testing area, cattle will be tested once sale arranged. 

Please contact Carol Carney for further details 07814 237211 (Wolseley Bridge Stafford)
