The Wessex Lowline
In 2010 Wessex Lowlines imported 10 heifers from Big Island Lowlines in Edmonton, Canada – the first live beef imports into the UK in over a decade. They arrived by Air Canada at Heathrow none the worse for their travels. A second import of 3 in-calf heifers and 6 calves from the same farm took place at the beginning of February 2012. A third import of 2 in calf heifers and 8 heifers arrived in February 2014.This gave us the opportunity to extend our gene pool by using new sires.
