The herd’s oldest cow, Bloksdal Bailey, 15 years old, has been sent to slaughter to day.
She was on the father side after our former stockbull Vainqueur (Emir x Pascaline), which was a French imported bull we bought as a bullcalf by Elevage Clame Aubouard. On the mother side, she was after Bloksdal Unak -ET (Major x Pekoline Hedevang), which was an embryo we bought from Hans Topholt. Bailey had an amazing temperament and incredible breed character, she managed to get 12 live calves. In addition, she is mother of 3 ET calves.
In 2018, she was honored by Jean-Louis Riotte as breeding queen at the local show in Hjørring, just as she also previously has received an honorary award at the National Show in Herning.
Bailey was ultimately a large strong cow, as her carcass weight and classification of 511 kg and class 9 also testifies.
