In today’s climate the Blue Grey is a very competitive cow

J & C Wood, Potholm, Langholm, Dumfriesshire run a 1400 acre LFA unit ranging from 280’ to 1400’ with 1,000 acres of hill grazing. 170 Blue Grey cows are kept on the hill and rough grazing. 100 calving in the autumn with the remainder in March.

Potholm Blue Greys

Brought onto the farm annually as 12—20 month old heifers, selected for length and conformation at the Newcastleton autumn sale. The cows calve to the Charolais with the heifers put to the Aberdeen Angus bull.

The Blue Grey is the ideal cow for the poorer forage areas, kept for their long productive life span with 12-13 calves being quite normal, they calve relatively trouble free and are very reliable milkers, and the ability to out-winter reduces the unit cost considerably.
