The Hackney herd of pedigree Limousin cattle was established by Paul in 2000 with the purchase of a maiden heifer Bradwell Marchoness for just £450 at Banbury Market. Marchoness is by Bradwell Hijack and is out of Bradwell Happy and now has 18 descendents of hers in the herd to date including 10 daughters and granddaughters.
Her first daughter Hackney Princess by Daim was breed calf champion at the Devon county Show in 2000 as well as breed champion at Honiton.
All females are breeding well in the herd and are bred to AI sires including Daim, Malibu, Ronick Hawk, Ocean, Ionesco, Neuf and Grange Valparaiso.
