Balthayock Farm

Balthayock is a family run stock farm situated four miles east of Perth
in the beautiful heart of Scotland.

At present the farm is stocked with over 100 pedigree Charolais and in calf heifers and 150 commercial cross bred suckler cows.

Both pedigree and commercial herds are closed and all replacements are home bred.

The farm is a member of the High Health Scheme and both herds are BVD accredited. They are tested annually for Johnes and all bulls are tested for BVD, Lepto, and IBR and their dams confirmed free of Johnes before they are offered for sale.

We now run about seven hundred pure bred Lleyn ewes replacing the last of the old flock of Suffolk and Texel cross ewes.
