Mara Archer

Archer was selected to take over the herd sire responsibility when his sire, Clipston Bowman moved to pastures new.  He was shown very successfully.  In 2006 he was Reserve Supreme Male Champion at the Royal Show and in 2007 was Breed Champion and Reserve Supreme Interbreed Champion at the Shropshire & West Midlands Show.


He was a female getter and left us a lot of lovely cows.


Senior stock bull - ex Mara Pansy S14 by Clipston Bowman


Semen tested - 98% good even as a nine year old.

Mara Garnet

Born 11.03.2010 - He has exceptional muscling and power and has passed these traits onto his progeny.   Impressive genetics - by FH Diamond, the final calf from the great late Mara Bonny T6.

Mara Kestrel

The best of the Archer sons out of a very graceful Pelokke daughter, Mara Diadem 17th.


He was the means of trying to bring some of the power of Lincoln into the herd.  It will be his grand daughters who will decide whether it is mission accomplished.  He is an easy calving bull, nice colour, a leg in every corner, and a lot of male character.  


Was never shown, but was selected as the best bull calf in the Regional Best Herds Competition
