After our two recent trips to the USA, we were thrilled to be visited at the site by an American farmer from Minnesota, who was visiting the area and staying with a Jersey breeder. The American farmer told us he turns over 1600 cattle a year.
He was so intrigued with our cattle that he returned to our site 3 times in the one day and has told us he intends to contact our friends/ clients in the U.S to discover Lowline cattles' place in the U.S. beef market.
We hope to hear back favourable from him soon.
Requests for the Lease of our Lowline bulls to go over small mobs of cattle were also received at Sungold.
A lot of small mob cattle farmers are quite relieved to know they can lease a bull instead of purchasing one, which only gets used for 6 weeks of the year and then is a nuisance for the rest of the year, requiring a separate paddock for its exclusive use.
