    British Blonde Heifers Exported to Poland

During the past few weeks an exiting development has come to British Blonde breeders who’ve just seen some of the breeds best bloodlines get exported into Poland.

This is a landmark achievement for the breed and comprised of 15 maiden heifers from two of the countries leading herds, twelve from David Knight’s Doncombe herd at Bristol and three from Messrs C & R Kinnish’s Kinaston herd at Bridgnorth. The heifers have now arrived at Robat Biuro’s farm at Handlu, Zagranicznego.

David Knight’s heifers were sired by their two senior stock bulls - Druk Lance and Druk Thor. The Kinaston heifers were sired by the homebred sire Kinaston Utan. There have been many positive enquiries from throughout the world on the availability of British Blonde genetics be it embryos or semen and live animals.

“I am thrilled to be part of this exiting development for the breed and am absolutely confident that the quality of heifers exported will secure further orders for British Blondes,” said David Knight.

The export opportunity was facilitated by Phil Halhead of Norbreck Exports who’ve been at the forefront of exporting cattle genetics to Europe over the past 18 months. There seems to be an almost insatiable demand for heifers from the newly joined EU countries keen to improve on the genetic base that they have in their country.

Phil Halhead added “The export of heifers has been based on the back of extended negotiations between ourselves and the extended contacts that we have in Poland. Norbreck Exports is now the UK’s largest export facilitator and we deal with the top Polish cattlemen. The cattlemen in Poland are keen to get their hands on the best genetics possible and the British Blondes fit the bill nicely,”
