The Manby Grange farm is situated in Lincolnshire on the outskirts of Louth. Our pedigree herd is a closed herd which has been generated over the last 25 years by the late Graham Lowry. He and Barbara took over the farm and developed there passion of limousins.
The Manby Grange herd was very proud in July 2016 to be accredited on EBV's from the Limousin Society. After this we were placed into the 10 breeders in the country, based on the genetics of the young bulls. The stock bull at the moment is a Milbrook Dartaganan which relates back to Wilodge Vantastic. The majority of the herd is a background of the Mas Du Clo breeding among others. The farm has been a closed herd, and we currently have 30 suckler cows and wish to grow this to 50 in time. We are small but are sensible on prices. The ultimate aim is to sell at Carlisle and hit a magical figure with a homegrown bull. It will happen one day! We calve in the autumn and spring and we keep to a tight calving pattern. We also use artificial insemination on some cows, to bring new bloodlines in, as we can't have Famous the bull going back on his daughters. Our new bulls this year are Lorenzo and Fenomen as well as Gold Card among others.
Location wise, we are in a TB area 4 and this is a huge asset when selling cattle. We are also in the premium cattle herd scheme which we started in 2015 as with selling breeding stock we want to only sell the best as been a closed herd we can monitor performance and both pedigree and commercial buyers will appreciate the fact we want to do the best. A good reputation with a quiet temperament and easy calving is what our aim is.
Manby Grange high health status is accredited for BVD, Johne's Disease risk 1 and Leptospirosis.
We have sold all over the country and are happy to deliver the bulls or heifers. We get repeat business, and joining the health scheme has meant we can check our performance, monitor this well and ensure that every beast can perform to its full potential. The high growth rates, plenty of shape and most importantly easy calving is paramount. This is why customers and breeders find success with the Manby Grange herd.Send Us A Message »
