Sire: Kilbride Farm Newry
Dam: Drumsleed Bubbles
Explosion was purchased privately from Gerlad and Morag Smith in late autumn 2014. By the noted Newry and a descendent of the Hockenhull Girlie line, his colour, ease of fleshing, correctness, locomotion and breed character are all attributes which will hopefully compliment our female base of Prince Charming daughters. He’s been shown successfully in Scotland and we’re pleased with how he has grown on since arriving in the herd. He also carries a positive calving ease, milk figure of +11, TPI of +99 and SRI of +101.
