Some of our 2013 show team
What makes us tick….
James Alexander and his father Nelson have created the “Jalex” brand at their holding situated on the outskirts of Randalstown (30 mins from Belfast). Stock numbers run at approximately 1200 throughout the year with the majority all being home bred on the farm.
The Jalex livestock business is run along side the highly successful Alexander Tractors which see huge demand from both local and export markets (www.alexandertractors.co.uk).
In 2014 we took the decision to sell a large proportion of our cows, this was due to a lack of time and spread of resources across the afrming business and the farm business.
We are now going to focus on bringing forward breeding heifers for selling on and our pedigree herds.
We currently have several batches of heifers coming forward and will have more ongoing, please call me if you are on the market for heifers whether bulling heifers, in calf or springers. We have heifers of most breeds on farm, Simmentals, Simmental crosses, Limousin cross, BB crosses, AA crosses, some muscled some not.
Heifers can be batched and sorted for export.
Member of the ChecS health scheme, heifers can be BVD tested.
While we are not trying to reinvent the wheel at Jalex, we feel that it always important to monitor and review what we are doing in order to keep improving.
