Out of the outstanding Duchess 611 female, he is a maternal sister to our world Forum yearling heifer. This sire has more bulls in the 2016 sale than any other sire. They are easy doing and sound cattle.

Merchiston Cointreau 128

Cointreau was retained as a 2 year old bull after being used as a yearling up at Glencorran. We love the phenotype and performance that these cattle offer. Maternally he combines both arms of the Maria family going back to the same cow Merchiston Lady Maria 812 and Kaharau Sky Driver daughter. Maria 313 and Maria 614 are both outstanding females so it will be interesting to see how this line-bred female breeds herself.
