Idvies sell in private deal to Shadwell Estate
Just prior to the Stirling Bull Sales, the Fraser family sold Idvies Eland N596 to Shadwell Estate Co Ltd. By the current senior herd sire Shadwell Black Broughton K485, he's out of Idvies Eliza J410, an Aynho Rossiter Eric daughter.
Shadwell Herd Manager Robert Clarke said "Eland was the perfect choice for Shadwell, he has total balance and correctness, a great top and back end and re-introduces the blood lines of Black Broughton and the Rosa Erica family back into the herd."
