|Breeder||James and Elizabeth Lynch|
|Breed(s)||Charolais and Simmental|
|Number of pedigrees||60|
|History||The Charolais herd was set up in 1992. 20 females were imported from Germany with good bloodlines (Baron, Stract,Olaf, Till2000). Top quality AI straws were then used on these females and their progeny(Gin Tonic, Diego, Jupiter,Excellent, Meillard,Invincible,Erudite,LUI,Mogodor,Aboukir,HWN,NEX,URO). We now use straws from Blaelack Digger,Hitman, Hamish, Goldbar, First, Castor,Vittoz. We have never used a stock bull.We cull selectively so that we have a high index herd.We have 2 Simmental females and again use top quality genetics on them.|
