LINCOLN RED CATTLE SOCIETY FARM VISIT – SUNDAY 14TH JULY
A gloriously warm sunny summers day, saw almost eighty Lincoln Red Cattle Society members, and friends descend on Sir Richard Sutton’s Settled Estates at Stainton Le Vale.
Situated in one of the most splendidly beautiful parts of Lincolnshire, just a few miles east of Market Rasen, the estate covers over 8,400 acres.
Our tour was led by Chris Baylis, Malcolm Vaughan, David Wilkie and Reg Arch.
The Sutton Herd of Lincoln Red cattle was established in 2001. The herd now consists of 120 cows with progeny . Currently three Lincoln Red Bulls are on site. We walked through one herd with some particularly smart bull calves at foot, and inevitably members were pointing out some first class calves with breeding potential. At the end of the next field we walked up to a superb bunch of heifers, who calmly looked us over, as we did them.
