To keep up with the demand for the Parthenais James Duerden from Ulverston, Cumbria (Killerwick herd) went to France earlier in the year and selected nine maiden heifers for customers.  Of the nine heifers six have gone to form two new herds at Stoke-on-Trent and Oswestry.

Member Paul Webber from Somerset (Portmead herd) and a fellow farmer have recently returned from Northern     Ireland having purchased 14 heifers and a bull between them.

This is all great news for the breed, the members and the society, with Parthenais herds opening up in new counties, and the society looks forward to welcoming the new breeders.
