Breed Leading Hereford Bull Broadens Cogent Beef Portfolio
2011-02-09

Cogent Breeding Ltd has strengthened their beef portfolio with the top Hereford sire Romany 1 Frisky.

The show-winning bull is in the top 2% of the breed for retail beef yield and in the top 5% for performance figures and milk.

With a breed leading pedigree, he is sired by Baybridge 1 Atlas, the Hereford 2010 ‘Sire of the Year’. In addition, his high performance dam, Romany 1 Dawn, was ‘Female Champion’ at the Royal Highland Show 2004 and the UK’s ‘Top Poll Female’ in 2005.

Frisky transmits the characteristics required for profitable breeding; tremendous muscling combined with outstanding performance figures, easy fleshing, good locomotion and quiet temperaments.

With an extensive pedigree and exceptional performance figures, Cogent’s Beef Specialist Boomer Birch explains that he is a unique bull that will suit all markets. “Frisky has great strength and cleanness through the shoulder, which supports his powerful loin that is full of width and stretch. His overall conformation is outstanding and he is square over the plates with a superior second thigh,” says Boomer.

Frisky’s breeder, Rob Wilson, says that the high performance bull was, “greatly admired on the show circuit and his winning highlight was Junior Male Champion at the 2010 Royal Highland Show.”

To make elite genetics available to pedigree and commercial breeders, Frisky is commercially priced at £7 RRP and sexed semen will be available in the spring.
