We feel fortunate to meet Bruce and Linda Goldie, the owners of the farm in Scotland where Solwaybank Extra Special was raised. We first noticed Bruce and Linda while they interacted with their two children showing at the Valais Blacknose Beauties show in Carlisle, England. We struck up a conversation and immediately felt comfortable asking them all kinds of questions.
A few days later we visited the Goldies on their farm. They were so welcoming and took the time to drive us around the farm, showing us their Valais as well as the other livestock they raise. Later, sitting around the kitchen table drinking coffee, we had a great conversation about the industry, our vision for the future of the Valais and the breed up program.
In the end we came to the conclusion the Goldies have the same work ethic and values as us and they are a family we would love to work with. After returning to Ohio we knew the best route would be to get our semen from the Goldies.
All of our ewes are bred with Solwaybank Extra Special semen. Beginning the Breed-up program we are confident we made the right breeding choice. We would like to provide the same opportunity to you. If you're interested in starting the breed-up program and have questions, we are more than happy to share our experience with you.
