Batavia is a unique blend of National Champions from two hemispheres and no less than five countries. UK, Australia, USA, Canada and Ireland. A big smooth bull with great power and muscle content we believe he has all the attributes the cattle industry in Great Britain requires as it struggles to become more efficient and competitive on the world stage. Batavia displays excellent locomotion on great feet and legs, has that wonderful Hereford temperament and maintains himself in top condition at all times, even after being out working. We are very excited about his calves coming forward for next year.

Whether you’re a pedigree breeder or a commercial suckler man this is the type of sire you need. Lots of red meat but structurally sound, docile and easy to handle, from a great female line renowned for their fertility and maternal traits. Semen available from UK Sire Services or direct from Churchlands.

Churchlands Estate 1 Granite


CE1 Granite is a lovely young bull with very dark colouring on his body and two eye patches.

He is favoured by the Australian visitors we had as he is light on his feet, and his eye colouring helps prevent cancer of the eye. This trait has been passed down to all of his offspring born so far. Granite is a very docile bull when being handled, and perks up again when he is turned out in the field.

Granite was one of our most successful embryo transplants, by Panmure 1 Plum T9, (2004 UK Female of the Year, 2004 Polled Female of the Year, Grand Champion and Reserve Supreme at the 2004 Royal Show) and Hallwood 1 Nibbs.

Granite has proven himself already both in the field and on the show circuit, placing second in the National Poll Show Junior Bull Class.

Of Granite, Ian Harvie (Owner, Harvie Ranching, Canada) said, “I thought [Granite] had one of the most promising heifer calves of my visit to England. He is an athletic bull with balance and structured to provide easy calving”.


  • Weight at 22 Months: 792kg
  • Sire: Hallwood 1 Nibbs
  • Dam: Panmure 1 Plum T9

Ford Abbey 1 Felippe


Felippe has been a great addition to our herd, bringing in some new blood and hopefully producing some great offspring in the spring. Unfortunately, he just isn’t the bull for us at the moment, however we are confident he will bring someone some very good calves next year!

He is by Ford Abbey 1 Albert and Ford Abbey 1 Emma Jane, and is a close resemblance to his father. In the 2011 year, he has done very well on the show circuit, being placed at every event he has travelled to, including Royal Norfolk, Three Counties Show, Nottingham and Newark Show, and Kenilworth, as well as many more.
