Simmental Herd

The Glenturk Herd of Simmentals was formed in 1970 as part of the original importation to the UK. After successfully breeding Simmentals for 30 years we lost the herd in a contiguous cull during the Foot and Mouth disease in April 2001. On re-stocking we were very fortunate to be able to purchase the majority of the spring calving portion of the Balmanno herd. This gave us a great basis to form our new herd. Since then we have had numerous successes at major shows and sales, winning the Supreme Simmental Championship and Reserve Interbreed with Balmanno Mermaid in 2003 at the Highland Show. In 2006 Glenturk Rita was placed overall Junior Champion and Female Champion at the Highland Show. We have also had success at the Perth Bull Sales, winning a Supreme Championship with Glenturk Nomad, and selling bulls to a top price of 17,000gns for Glenturk Rolex.
