Spout Bank Blue Greys

Spout Bank lies 15 miles North east of Carlisle in Cumbria, rising to approximately 400 feet above sea level and extending to over 800 acres.

Our herd of Galloway cows run with Whitebred Shorthorn bulls to produce Blue Greys. We calve half the herd in the Spring with the remainder in the Autumn.

The Blue Grey heifer calves are sold annually at Newcastleton Auction Mart.

Blue-grey steers are finished on the farm and sold to local butchers, or to a marketing scheme where we receive a premium. Galloway and Blue Grey steers are also purchased to finish on the farm.

Galloway heifers with Blue-grey calves at foot are sold at the Spring and Autumn Sales at Carlisle.

The farm also carries a herd of Angus and Limousin cross cows which are put to the Charolais bull, and a flock of 1450 Swaledale ewes which are crossed with the Bluefaced Leicester to produce the Greyfaced (Mule) lamb. The ewe lambs are sold at Carlisle in September.
