Welcome to Tanat Herd of British Blue Cattle
Tanat Ebony Champion Chelford Calf Show 2010
Henfache Farm home to 'Tanat Blues' nestles in the Tanat Valley on the Powys/Shropshire border sitting at 700 feet rising to 2200 in approximately 640 acres. We are currently farming a commercial beef herd of seventy head of cattle plus stores and calves by a Limousin bull and previously a Charolais bull. We also run a flock of a thousand ewes comprising of Welsh Mountain and Welsh Mules.
On the loss of our Charolais bull Max we decided to hire a British Blue bull which fanned the flames leading to the purchasing of our own bull in 2007 by the name of Richphill Windsor Lad who we now use on our commercial herd. This was not quite fulfilling my passion so in May 2008 a trip to Carlisle was planned and we returned home with Lukeroyal Wannita who was in calf to Twyning Ash Vaughan and a heifer called Greystone Bertha. Since then we have purchased heifers, recipients and embryos from some of the top herds in the country which include Bringlee, Ridge Dean, Faughanvale and Tamhorn. These breeding lines are now the solid foundations for Tanat Blues.
So far we have gone from strength to strength and are producing some excellent calves some of which have been doing well in the show ring. We would like to thank everyone who has given their help and good advice and especially family members as without them this venture would not have been possible.
We hope you enjoy browsing around our website and feel free to contact us if you have an enquiry.
