|Nestor x Broadmeadows Jiji
Umax was born in the first flush from Jiji. He was Black Isle Show 2004 Champion and Perth Bull Sales Champion October 2004 selling for 9000gns to Malcolm Allan.
Umax was always a smart, showy bull and was correct in every way and was easy fleshing with good plates. He has proved to be an exceptional female breeder in both the pedigree and commercial herds and is currently being used sparingly on the pedigree herd as he is closely related to a lot of the females. We intend to use him again in years to come to give us good framed milky cows.
Millgate Caesar x Alagils Ainsi Grammaticas is the senior stock sire in the Alagils herd. He was kept for pedigree and commercial use because he is easy calving, his females will milk, he has growth, easy fleshing, muscle, length and style, exceptional temperament and performance figures.
His back pedigree boasts a long line of championship winning cattle. His full ET brother Alagils Gershwin sold at Carlisle for 12,000gns at 15 months old.

|Loosebeare Bigboy – Tomschoice Usurper x Loosebeare Pussy
Affectionately known as ‘Boysey,’ he was bought primarily for commercial use and as a chaser for the pedigree herd because of his pedigree and figures. He has left some good females in both the pedigree and commercial herds. We have also sold sons of his privately up to £5500.
|Scorboro Regius - Scorboro Olympian x Scorboro Lace
Regius was an exceptionally big, natural bull with high growth (2.2kg/day at Lim test) and has an outstanding pedigree. He was also a winner of the M&S Beefbreeder competition.
We crossed him with Broadmeadows Jiji to produce Alagils Ainsi, Arise, Anastasia and Alta Rica. All these females are breeding very well in the herd today.
|Bapton Javelin – Haltcliffe Gladiator x Bapton Greta
Javelin was widely used in the commercial herd with great success over the last 15 years, leaving some exceptional breeding females.
|Ronick Hawk – Broadmeadows Cannon x Ronick Esther
Hawk was used principally as an easy calving bull for heifers. He has left some good breeding females in both the pedigree and commercial herd.
|Bedell Maurice – Hamecon x Gertrude
Maurice was used great success in the commercials and proved himself as a correct, long bull, who has left exceptional, breeding females with plenty of milk.
|Carthorpe Bruno – Bedell Maurice x Rokeby Rebecca
Bruno was the principal bull in the commercial herd. His progeny have good production figures, which have reflected in strong trade for store cattle achieved over the years.
|Tehix – Mas du Clos x Lilas
Used sparingly on the pedigree herd producing bulls:
Alagils Flockhart (Tehix x Alagils Arise) sold for 5000gns May 2011 Carlisle at 15 months old.
Alagils GT (Tehix x Alagils Ainsi) sold for 7000gns May Carlisle 2012 at 14 months old to Messrs Logan Homebyres.
|Millgate Caesar – Ballyline Udolf x Hollybank Angel
Millgate Caesar is one of our favourites. He has a superb pedigree and show history being overall champion at the All Ireland Bull Derby in 2008 and following through with champion at Carlisle February 2009 selling for 18,000gns.
His pedigree and figures matched our breeding objectives.
He is the sire of Alagils Gershwin (sold for 12,000gns), Grammaticas (stock bull), Gatsby (sold privately), Gillie and Gemma, both of which have been retained.
|Vagabond – Neuf x Niche
Selected for impressive conformation, mobility, carcase quality and figures, his pedigree goes without saying.
Despite widespread use we have yet to get a pedigree female, but we have retained a bull (Alagils Humberston x Alagils Bella) as our junior stock bull.
|Wilodge Enrico – Sympa x Wilodge Vavanelle
A bull with a modern pedigree and excellent figures. Females retained in the herd include Alagils Hayley and Alagils Halfpenny, while bulls have sold to 5,000gns Alagils Hankybannister May Carlisle 2014. The herd has now been joined by Alagils Jinny.
|Ampertaine Domino - Ampertaine Abracadabra x Kype Tiffany
This is a bull with style and character, bringing old and new bloodlines together with excellent performance figures. Two females, Alagils Indi and Alagils Insi (both out of Alagils Ainsi) are looking very promising.
A blast from the past, bringing scale, length and correctness to the fore. He is very easy calving. We are very pleased with his daughter Alagils Hortensia (Alagils Fantasia). We also have two young bulls out of the Millgate Caesar daughters Alagils Gillie (Alagils Isonomy) and Alagils Gemma (Alagils I-guy).
|Neuf – Jungle x Cassis and Ionesco - Bambino x Coquette
Both being used to produce fleshy females.
