Glenisla-Petunia

Having originally purchased Petunia privately, she has bred well for us and has produced the exceptional Alsnow Abigail, a Blelack Percy daughter. She is a huge cow with a great nature and to date she has produced the 12,000gns Alsnow Euro, sold to Peter Donger and a calf at 5000gns which was sold in Carlisle in November 2012. She is also half sister to the dam of the current herd stock bull Puntabrava Federico. Abigail was also the mother of the 4500gns Alsnow Hussle, sold to Terry Coghill, Orkney, at the October Stirling 2013 sale.

 Alsnow-Velvet

Pre F&M a few cows were purchased privately from the Suddes family, Northumberland, and one of those was Wellhouse Flora, a Fleets Rascal daughter out of Thrunton Thomasina. Fortunately she was flushed and six embryos were held in the tank and as a result one of those is Alsnow Velvet.

By Mowbraypark Orlando she has bred well for us. She has an impressive daughter in the form of Alsnow Frances who has been flushed to the stock sire Federico.

Alsnow-Victoria

By Thrunton Socrates, Victoria is out of Blelack Joliicoer, a cow we tried hard to purchase privately from the Massie family. We wsucceeded in buying a heifer calf by her and later followed up with her eventual purchase.

Victoria is a consistent breeder of both males and females and embryos off her have been sold to Australia and sons selling to a top of 7000gns. She is also dam of Alsnow Freesia, our first prize winning heifer from the 2012 Royal Highland Show.

The homebred Eddie is by Blelack Roger and is out of the Mowbraypark Orlando daughter Alsnow Utopia. Unfortunately we only had a few calves by him before he suffered a fatal injury. His first son, Alsnow Genereux, sold for 11,000gns.

Clyth-Diplomat

Diplomat has been used via AI in the herd and is by the proven Oldstone Egbert out of the Beauchamp Foreman daughter Clyth Vanilla. We have a handful of impressive 2012 and 2013 born males and females by him which are already shaping up to be exciting prospects for the future.

Puntabrava-Federico

The latest addition to the Alsnow herd, Federico was purchased in partnership with Chris Curry of the Burradon herd in February 2012 when he sold for 10,000gns as an aged bull. He is by the noted Dingle Hofmesiter and is out of the Mowbraypark Orlando daughter Alsnow Unity, a female we originally sold at the Christmas Cracker event in Carlisle for 5000gns. He is a big, powerful bull, but is easily calved and his progeny are showing great promise for the future.
