Blizzard has bred two heifers (Rosedean Santa Ana (2012) and Rosedean Windward (2016)) and three steers. She is in calf to Wharncliffe Kingmaker, due early June 2017

Blizzard is our matriarch and “Boss” cow. She has proved to be a great mother and although a fourth calver in 2015, she took to being hand milked like a veteran.

Annie has a wonderful temperament, is a great mother and is happy to be hand milked. She was a big hit when she attended the Royal Highland Show in 2013 as part of the display of livestock on the Rare Breed Survival Trust stand. She has been shown at our local show at Kirriemuir, where she won Best Other Native Breed in 2014.

Rosedean Umber HB No. 14-6848

Born 24th May 2014 By Hollins Storm, out of Rosedean Santa Ana Red and white COI 7.09%

Rosie is proving to have inherited her mother’s great temperament. She is well handled and was machine milked in summer 2016, after calving for the first time in June. Unfortunately, she broke a horn when she was a calf and had to have it removed, but it doesn’t detract from this lovely heifer.
