THE STONEHOUSE SUCKLER HERD
The organic herd of suckler cows has evolved from a traditional type of dairy and continental cross cow to a progressive, performance recorded herd grading up to pure-bred Stabilisers.
THE STABILISER BREED
The Stabiliser is an American composite breed which has been bred to live in range conditions and produce quality calves for the beef industry. This improved genetics has now been imported back into the UK and Stonehouse Farm has been asked to become a multiplier herd. This means we have a market for Stabiliser and cross-bred heifers. We have recently been asked to increase our male finished beef production by Waitrose, who are facing a decline in their sources of organic beef.
