Fordel Angus

Fordel Angus

Established in 1983, originally on a J. Erica from Classlochie, and Esmercia of the Moss, a descendant of Eyra of Derculich, we focused on producing easy calving moderate sized cattle. Since 1996 we stopped creep feeding in order to rank cows by their maternal performance, thereby improving weaning weight percentages and milking ability. The bloodlines used originally were QAS Traveler 23-4, Scotch Cap, Bronco of the Moss, GDAR Rainmaker 340, followed by Ankonian Elixir 100 and his sons including Fordel Elixir A238 and Fordel Edison F061. Current sires include Fordel Loch Rannoch, Fordel Loch Torridon and Fordel Loch Earn, three full ET brothers by Sitz Upward 307R out of Champion Hill Lucy 6863, and Fordel Beartooth and Fordel Lumberjack, two TC Stockman 365 sons. The herd currently numbers 400 pedigree cows with over 75% descending from just 5 cow families.
