Scottish echard Fullblood bull
« on: August 22, 2012, 10:01:04 AM »
Anyone know anything about Scottish echard?

He was imported from England to the US and then entered into the Canadian herd book in early 70's. 

Potentially there could be some semen somewhere.

I remember the bulls name but not much else. There was quite a few Scottish imports in that era, but only a few of them got used much

This is our 4.5 month old heifer calf sired by Scottish Echard, we have used him for many years. We have found he is an excellent bull improving weight for age.

This is a photograph of her dam she is 7 years old and the heifer in the previous photo is her 5th calf, she is in paddock condition. She is not the prettiest cow, however she is structurally very sound and always given us good calves.

The way that cow is put together makes her a very nice cow. Looks to have a good foundation and a nice udder. North Americans are probably more obsessed in having a squarer hip and tail setting.

she reminds me of inox when i saw him. smooth and correct but could be better rumped and thicker.

Absolutely!

How is the fertility of this type of cow in that environment?

Good to see some great Aussie Maines, calves like that are the future of the breed down under.

We have never had any problems getting her in calf, we have A.I her the last five years with no issues.
