Donaldson is now 4 years old and is a proven boar. He has sired at least 10 litters that we know about! Although what he gets up to when we go home – we will never know!
Again, he is a gentle soul and loves nothing more than a back scratch. He is now regularly out on hire so book early to avoid disappointment.
We are in fact looking to dispose of our Berkshire Herd in order to concentrate on the Middle Whites and Oxford Sandy & Blacks. So if you’re interested in buying Donald, then please get in touch.
Oxford Sandy and Black
Well after Othello’s sad and untimely death we have at last found someone to fill the gap that he left … well not quite, because as those of you who met him will know, it was a rather large gap!!
Albert has the unenviable task of walking in Othello’s shoes and he’s doing a pretty good job of it I have to say. There are some things that are much easier with Albert (eg he loads on to the trailer without me having to crawl in with him!) and there are other things he’s not quite as good at (eg collecting the feed bowls and putting them in the ark ready for washing up!)
The ladies however, don’t seem to mind and we’ve had some cracking litters from him so far; and because he’s not quite the size of Othello, he’s suitable for covering all gilts and sows without any concern.
To see Albert’s pedigree or to check his availability please call Graham on 01483 811199
