In the last 4 years the 2 top bulls in the breed for growth, carcase milk and indexes are Pirelli and a son of Peter Pershore -who is full brother to Nightingale Poundman, Pirelli’s sire. We compared 600dw. Weight, eyemuscle, retail beef yield, sire and maternal indexes which are most important traits to us.

Pirelli is running with heifers and 2nd calver. He is 8th generation direct descendant from the great GV Pride 30M we important in 1983 and through the generations many stocks bulls have graced pedigree herds. Wedderlie, Skill, Ballamanaugh, Bosullow, Moss, Newcarnie. His dam’s two maternal sisters are also retained, by Lancer and Dudley.
