The Beeches Limousin herd was founded by David and Sheila Thomlinson in 1978 at Park View, Scaleby, near Carlisle in an area of the North West of England that has become a heartland for the breed.
The Beeches herd of 47 breeding cows is run on commercial lines on 200 acres at Park View, with the aim of breeding quality bulls and females for sale both through the ring and privately.
The herd has participated in North West Limousin events
and in 1998 won both champion and reserve in the annual heifer Derby with Beeches
Marble and Beeches Myrrh respectively. The Beeches herd has also been placed
on numerous occasions in the annual herd competition.
The Beeches herd has enjoyed success in the ring at shows in the region, with notable champions Beeches French and Georgette among them. Both David and Sheila are official judges for the British Limousin Cattle Society.
A selection of bulls and incalf and maiden heifers are always available for sale privately.
Visitors to Park View are always welcome to see the Beeches herd in its natural environment.
The Beeches Limousin herd is only 10 minutes’ drive from junction 44 of the M6 motorway and 15 minutes from the A69 trunk road.
