DCBS Show and Sale on March 22nd 2007. Ashott Barton Merlin was sold to Brian Drake owner of the well known and established Essington herd

Merlin is the son of Cutcombe Millennium, Stock Bull of the year 2006. Millennium is an outstanding bull of tremendous length, depth and size who moves superbly and produces stock which have uniformly excellent growth rates. Millennium has been awarded Stock Bull of the year on two occasions (2004 & 2006). His progeny, Merlin’s siblings, have won praise from herd competition judges who in 2006 inspected 37 herds and placed us third in the medium herd section.

Merlin has his sire’s qualities and his steady laid back temperament. His dam, Champson Tulip the 48th is now 13 years old and is a long, deep cow of rich red colour that still has a well hung udder and produces a plentiful supply of milk. Merlin was weaned at 300 days and he was 400 kg. He was 750 kg on 7th February.

Merlin brings together breed qualities and a genetic inheritance from two well known and exceptional herds.
