After many years of owning an Aberdeen Angus X suckle herd here in Beaulieu, Hampshire. We decided to branch out into the world of pedigree Angus.
In 2014 we founded Lightning Park Angus. Three years into our pedigree journey we had a fabulous opportunity to buy a small foundation herd of black heifers from Robert and Vanessa Lane at Penguin Angus. Since 2016 we have been expanding on these family lines, focusing on breeding very correct but easy calving bulls, not only for our dairy herd heifers but also for the pedigree and commercial market.
We now have seven Black Angus family lines: Blackbird, Evening Tinge, Jestress, Miss Essence, Tidy Bee, Tibbie and Rosa Erica. We will hopefully be expanding our family lines in the near future, with maybe some embryo work also… but I won’t say anymore… just watch this space!
