Pedigree Highland Bull for sale
Alexander of Doodale UK137283 100012 – SOLD
Our pedigree highland bull is for sale. Alexander is a fit and healthy young Highland bull. He has a large frame with good length, born and raised on our farm in Malton.
We estimate that he weighs between 750 and 800kg (aged 3 in summer 2020) based on tape measurement. He is still growing and is gradually filling out his frame (pasture diet only).
He has a large head with good strong horns and plenty of hair in the winter. In the summer he loses the hair on his body and develops a smooth fine coat.
Alexander has lived his entire life outside and his diet has been 99% forage based except for a few cattle nuts as treats when handling him. 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.
He will stand well on a halter and will walk confidently with a lead rope on his nose ring. He has not been to any shows and in our opinion, he would not be comfortable in a show environment. Although we obviously feel he would win many prizes!!
Alexander will stand in the field and enjoy a brush like all our cattle.
Although registered as red, we believe that he is yellow as he sired both a white and a dun calf in 2020.
