PRESTONE BOXER b. 01/09/04
Prestone Boxer was Supreme Champion Tenbury. He was a 93J son who was exported to Denmark. He typed his females at the Mara producing beautiful milky females and good strong bulls such as Mara Chancellor and Mara Democrat. Boxer semen can still be purchased from the Hereford Cattle Society.
BROOK FINALIST b. 08/11/88
Brook Finalist was one of the great sires to be used in the breed in the last 15 years. He achieved Champion Male at Tenbury and left a wealth of wonderful females in the Mara herd of which only 2 now remian, and he then went on to make an even bigger name for himself at Badlingham with the likes of Badlingham Beresford and Badlingham Bennett. Had Finalist had more time in service at Badlingham I am sure we would have all been relegated to lower placings in the show ring as a result, but would probably have gained from the legacy of having more great sons of Finalist used in the breed.
