for British Limousin breed


We are pleased to hear that our herd has won the Limousin category for the most improved herd.  The award is presented by the EBLEX Beef Better Returns Programme (Beef BRP) to the recorded herd that shows the greatest genetic gain for commercial traits over a 12-month period.

Equally pleasing is to get the following feedback from EBLEX:
 
“The British Limousin winner this year is a belting good herd!” says EBLEX breeding specialist Samuel Boon.  “The Green’s are experienced and innovative breeders, striving to provide top quality breeding stock that will produce commercially desirable progeny. Their use of records and information to attain top end results is reaping dividends.
 
In fact they are not only Improved Herd Award winners - they have the highest average Beef Value of any Limousin herd in the UK (with more than five calves), out of 850!”

Another great health test
for Greensons


Jan '12

The annual HiHealth Herdcare (Biobest) test has come back with a clean sweep of negative results.  The herd retains its status as Accredited Free of IBR and BVD but is now also Accredited Free of Lepto.  Another clear Johne’s test means we are one test away from accredited free status there too.  It has been hard work and there have been a couple of hard decisions along the way but we view achieving and maintaining a high health status as a vital part of our plans.

DIY AI Success
