Sauvignon and Vigot Progeny doing their job in New Zealand

Tuesday, 16th March 2010

We have been very happy with the calves of Sauvignon and Vigot especially those of Sauvignon whose progeny are exactly the type of beef cattle we want to breed.

The pregnancy results from the sexed semen were good. Sexed Semen is an ideal tool for the stud master of smaller herds who may wish to have more control over male and female numbers each year. We have been very happy with the results and consider that sexed semen has many advantages for those who use it making it a worthwhile investment.

This year our show team consisted of Sauvignon and Vigot progeny. They were great examples of the Limousin Breed and won many Prizes in various classes. For us their greatest achievement for the season was the publicity they created for the Limousin Breed by their outstanding docility .Not only were they outstanding examples of beef animals but they were perfectly behaved and a pleasure to watch.

It has been an up hill battle for twenty years to fight the stigma of bad temperament that came to New Zealand with the Limousin Breed so every time we are "on show" the docility is very important. Snake Gully has a reputation for having quiet cattle and it is something we consider of the utmost importance.
