Plumtree Limousins

Bankdale Amber

Bankdale Amber is by Sympa out of Princesse and was purchased in 2007 for 7000gns from the Red Ladies Day sale in Carlisle. Amber is definitely one of the herd’s best cows and has been greatly admired from the day she was purchased. She has great shape, length and depth and is a true representation of the breed. She has been shown twice in 2007 standing overall reserve junior champion at Rutland and second at the Royal Show.

Amber’s first calf, Plumtree Deus (Latin for God) was reserve senior champion in Carlisle, May 2008 and sold for 35,000gns to the Garyvaughan herd, Welshpool.

At the Bankdale dispersal in July, a full sister to Amber, Bankdale Erin, was sold for the world record price of 65,000gns.

Amber’s progeny is always outstanding. Her second bull calf, Plumtree Fantastic is by the renowned Wilodge Vantastic and was sold in 2011 in a private deal for 40,000 to Ian Handley’s Gunnerfleet herd.

Amber’s daughters, Plumtree Farah by Cloughhead Umpire and Plumtree Fortuna, by Wilodge Vantastic, are both sweet, long heifers oozing immense style and character. Farah was shown at the 40th Anniversary Show in 2011 and stood third in an incredibly strong heifer class. 

Her 2011-born heifer calves are equally as stylish. Plumtree Gabriella, by Wilodge Vantastic has been outstanding since she was born. She will definitely be retained and likely shown in the future. Plumree Glorien, by Mas Du Clo, has a tremendous body already and like her half sister is showing signs of being a great prospect for the future.

Atalie is by the French sire Milou out of the Broadmeadows Cannon daughter Sarkley Natalie and was purchased at the 2007 Sarkley production sale. Her first son was sold privately to local commercial farmer John Holmes and her second calf, Plumtree Erin has been retained and AI’d to Plumtree Deus. Atalie is a lovely cow and as yet hasn’t reached anywhere near her full potential, unfortunately she has been flushed a number of times but has only given one fertile embryo which is due in October and will be by Sympa of Haltcliffe Vermount. She has been flushed to Sympa, Mas Du Clo and Plumtree Deus.
