The LRCS Young Bull Performance Testing program, in conjunction with Nottingham Trent University, at their Brackenhurst Campus, began in November 2012.

An Animal Science Student is doing her final Dissertation using data collected on the Bulls’ feed conversion.

In the early 60’s; the Lincoln Red Cattle Society, through the suggestion of the late Mr L Bembridge, formed the Beef Recording Association. In the mid 60's they joined with the North Devon and Sussex Cattle Societies to start the very first Young Bull Performance Tests which were held in purpose-built buildings at the Royal Showgrounds, Stoneleigh.

Following a rigorous selection process the following bulls entered the 2012/2013 Scheme:

On 17th October 2012, a Lincoln Red sired steer topped Newark Livestock Market, grossing £1768. The steer's dam, a Limousin x Lincoln Red cow, had been sold in calf to Beverley Kudos and calved in February 2011. He was put on ad lib barley later that winter and was being aimed towards a Christmas Show in 2012, but had grown and done so well that his owner, Clive Goulsbra, decided he would be too big to keep another 6 weeks. He weighed 754kgs and made 235p/kg to gross £1768, easily the highest priced steer of the day. He was bred by Dick Read, at West Ashby near Horncastle, Lincolnshire; a great supporter of the Breed.

SUN SHINES ON FARM VISIT

Lirecs

The 2012 Lincoln Red farm visit took place on Sunday 15th July at the Padworth Park Herd in Berkshire kindly hosted by Mick Shaw and Ruth Miller.  The rare site of blue skies greeted around 40 members & visitors, many of whom had travelled a considerable distance to see how Lincoln Reds were performing outside of their native county.

They were not to be disappointed as the cattle looked resplendent in their super park setting.

The Herd currently consists of 90 registered females with 3 Lincoln Red stock bulls, the overall aim being to reach 120 suckler cows.  The farm operates a low input forage system with cows being out wintered and fed on ad-lib haylage and mineral licks - a role ideally suited to the Lincoln Red.  Females are selected in the summer into 4 bulling groups and are put to either a Lincoln Red; Black Angus; Red Angus or British...
