Chapleton Brogie (P)
Blackford Farms bought Brogie in February 2010 at the Perth bull sales, from Mr. Donald Biggar of Chapelton Farms. A stylish Typhoon son with a terminal index +22, self-replacing index +22. We purchased this bull for his fleshing abilities and his good temperament. Both his sire and dam are polled which is always an advantage for us.
His sire Chapelton Typhoon (ET) has sired many champions. Typhoon is out of C.F.Varsity (USA) and Blue Ridge Cheerleader (Canada). Brogie has definitely received his easy calving and great temperament genes.
We visited Chapelton Farm and had the pleasure of seeing Typhoon looking great and still working well. Another highlight of our day was seeing Brogie’s dam Chapelton Heathermaid who for her age is looking amazing, which is great news for the future of the Brogie’s heifers.
Since we brought Brogie home he has produced some fantastic calves, some of which have been doing extremely well on the 'show circuit' (please see our news page for details of shows). We have now kept one of these Champion show bulls as our future stockbull and look forwards to the future.
