Knowlesmere Cousteau Papoose

Well grown and ready for the limelight, this silky skinned showcalf is in great condition and leads like a dream. Consigned by A & J Whittaker who farm in Shropshire, the Papoose family is one of their flagship cow families – where their great fertility, longevity and ability to prosper has enabled the bloodline to make up almost 15% of the herd.

Her dam, Knowlesmere Garrison Papoose, is a VG88 2nd calver who herself is no stranger to the showring. As a youngster she took county shows by storm, taking titles at the Cheshire Show and Shropshire Show, which was followed by 4th in the Spring Calf Class at the National Holstein Show 2007. Impressively, she also made the transition from showcalf to showcow by finishing 5th as an Intermediate In-Milk Heifer at the National Holstein Show 2009.

Descending from the Marq-I EX91 foundation cow, the Papooses' are an extremely strong family – whose characteristics are passed from generation to generation – making it easy to see why breeders are more than impressed with how this family easily thrives within many environments and systems.

Breeder Andy Whittaker said, 'Knowlesmere Papoose's are robust, consistently milk well and quite often gain time with each lactation. They are aggressive feeders and have always classified very well.'

With strong breeding on both sides – this flashy Regancrest-Mr Samuelo daughter is manufactured to deliver.

Make sure you don't miss this unique opportunity to invest in the best this year.
