BLACKBROOK LONGHORNS HERD HISTORY
We have always been very selective in our purchases and very ruthless in our culling. Our cattle now conform to the type we desire leaving us with consistently good offspring and solid foundations for the next few decades.
The meat from the Longhorn has won accolades by all of the top Chef’s including Heston Blumethal, Jock Zonfrillo, and Gregg Wallace. The Blackbrook Herd itself won the title of ‘Best Meat in Britain’ (Country Life) in 2012.
Blackbrook Longhorns were a familiar sight up and down the Country in the Showring for a period of 26 years. During that time they took 6 National Championships as well as prestigious Interbreed Championships.The herd has won the Midland Herd Competion for an outstanding total of 18 times.
Over the last few years we have been concentrating of the export of our genetics to Countries across the World - America, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France etc.
During this period to ensure our biosecurity our cattle have not been shown, but it gives us enormous pleasure to see our genetics out in the showring with other herds taking top honours. Our ambition is to continue to produce top quality Blackbrook Longhorns that are adding to, improving and founding new herds throughout the UK & the World.
Blackbrook Longhorns “the Herd for all reasons”.
