Bred by the Pennie family, Montgomery, Powys, Bellola was bought in July 2007 at the Sarkley Production Sale for the second highest price of the day 24,000gns as a maiden heifer. Her sire is the Heros sired Cloghhead Lord, a proven breeder of both bulls and females, while her dam is by the Broadmeadows Cannon-sired Ronick Luke and goes back to Galuois on the dam side. Bellola is a well muscled female but retains great feminine characteristics.
She has already made a great impact at Wilodge, producing Wilodge Dallaglio, a son of Wilodge Vantastic who topped Carlisle in October 2009 selling for 30,00gns to Messrs Harryman and Richardson for their commercial and pedigree herds.
A July 2008-born daughter and full sister to Dallaglio, Wilodge Dellola, is showing great promise as is the October 2008 born bull calf Wilodge Doubletop, who is by our stock bull, the 24,000gns Clydevalley Arty.
