PEDIGREE CHAROLAIS CATTLE

The facilities at Saxtead include keep for a small herd of cattle, plus a thoroughbred stud, and a purpose built soap kitchen.The Showsoap range has been expanded to include white, cream, yellow, black and a range of brown shades suitable for Simmental and limousin cattle. Semen is on offer from 5 breds: Charolais, Limousin, Simmental, Blue and Blonde. This list is ever expanding with straws from quality beef bulls which we feel offer value to the British breeder.

Our Charolais Mission Statement remains:
