Highland Heifer for sale

Pedigree Highland Heifer for sale

Annabelle of Doodale  UK137283 400036

born 20th May 2020

Annabelle is a fit and healthy young Highland heifer. She is a good size for her age, with a pretty, small face, born and raised on our farm in Malton. She is red in colour with a dark muzzle like her mother.

Annabelle has lived her entire life outside and her diet has been 100% forage (plus milk). We do not use artificial fertiliser, pesticide or herbicide on our forage, and we have a broad blend of grass, herbs and legumes in our fields.

Although her mother, Andrea, has naturally weaned Annabelle we will not separate Andrea and Annabelle until March. We plan to socialise and halter train Annabelle in the spring. We will also ensure she is comfortable walking into a cattle truck and through a crush.

Dam

We purchased Andrea as a yearling heifer from Ruston Fold. She is a deep red colour with a dark muzzle and some dark red markings. Andrea is a larger than average sized cow with a long body and has produced larger than average, mainly red, calves. Her feet are good and she produces a plentiful supply of milk from a balanced udder. She is very aware of her surroundings and is the herd lookout.

Reason for Sale

Much as we would like to keep every quality breeding heifer that our lovely cows produce, we are approaching our maximum capacity and would prefer to sell good heifers for breeding rather than selling them for beef.

Annabelle and her best friend Raelie (also for sale) will make a lovely breeding duo or pair of pets for someone looking to add two stunning heifers to their established fold or just starting out with a new fold.
