NATIONAL HERD COMPETITION WINNER 2005, 2011 & 2014
Located in East Cornwall, Trewint is a 200 acre farm specializing in the breeding of pedigree South Devon cattle. Our breeding programme has resulted in Trewint cattle being present throughout the UK. We also have progeny in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, Poland, Ireland and the Isle of Man.
"Our cows must be good doers. If they can't maintain their appropriate body condition throughout the year, they are culled. This gives us greater herd uniformity, as does the breeding policy we use. When I choose a new herd sire from outside, I aim to retain his best son from one of our best breeding cows for use within the herd." Peter is proud that the quality and uniformity of the herd has been regularly rewarded by success in the regional and national herd competitions. As he no longer grows his own corn Peter now sells most of his steers to Philip Warren of Launceston. With increasing demand for his breeding bulls he prefers to devote the farm's resources to increasing the cow herd numbers. Peter's son Ashley is showing every sign of becoming an expert stockman in the family tradition.
