Bridget Borlase made the final three in this year’s Farmers Weekly Beef Farmer of the Year and after a grilling judging experience in the summer she was named runner up at a glittering ceremony held at the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, London in October.

August 2008

For the first time the South East Area Simmental Group calf show was held at Edenbridge and Oxted show and Sacombe took a team of calves. We were fortunate to have great success with one in particular, Perrywood Wispa (Perrywood being Bridget’s own prefix) taking the overall championship under judge Roy McDonald, stockman at Charles and Sally Horrell’s Pode Hole herd in Peterborough.

Wispa is by Skerrington Rajah and out of Ranfurly Mame 3rd and will be a feature of our 2009 show team.


A party of 40 Romanian Simmental breeders drove the crazy journey over from Holland especially to visit the Sacombe herd. As a tag on to a visit made to one of the agricultural shows in Holland, they decided to travel to the UK just to see our herd, a visit we were incredibly honoured to host. We hope you had an enjoyable day!

Sacombe Simmentals were very fortunate to be one of the host farmers for this year’s World Congress. Some 260 delegates from across the world visited our farm along with a few others in the south east after touring round farms in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Yorkshire, East Anglia and the Midlands. The day was an overwhelming success and we were able to take some export orders for semen.   Click here for pictures from the Sacombe visit

Sacombe are pleased to announce the arrival of calves born to the 2005 Royal Highland Junior Champion Skerrington Rajah. With such high EBv figures such as a terminal index of +38 and self replacing index of +43, we’ve followed Rajah closely and after he was purchased in Perth by the Kinnard family, we have been fortunate to use him. We’re incredibly pleased with the 10 calves we have on the ground to him and hope to have one or two for sale soon.  View EBI details >>>
