Breeding Stock

In 2003, the embryonic days of Solway View, we introduced Broomfield Vivien. Since then we have grown the herd with selective purchases and a programme of embryo transfer work. We constantly seek to find impressive female lines to develop our breeding stock further, and will update this list.

Breeding stock from Annanwater

When I first started looking at the breed, I was impressed by the stock of BK Ryder at Annanwater, so it is no surprise that Annanwater progeny now form the nucleus of our herd.

Featured here are some of our best British Blue breeding animals:
