Aberdeen Angus

Donald established the Chapelton herd of Aberdeen Angus in 2001 using the finest North American genetics blended with the best of U.K. bloodlines.  We have used well-known North American sires including Ankonian Elixir, Vermilion Dateline, DMM Essoteric and Champion Hill Edition, and have built the herd upon a foundation of British-bred females following our purchase of Retanach Exceptance in 2002.

We cannot overstate the importance of female lines in our selection.  Three of the bulls used recently are sons or grandsons of DMM Diamond Mist 8F; in our opinion, one of the best females in the breed.  Current Herdsire Chapelton Watchword by Vermilion Dateline is an ET son of Reata Witchy Woman 11L a very successful daughter of Whitesone Widespread.  The herd presently consists of around 75 cows which we hope to increase in the future.

Early successes for the Chapelton Herd included Eventer sold at Perth to Rosemount and Glenbervie herds for 23,000 gns.  Tofts and Tree Bridge are also home to Chapelton sires.  In recent years, many of our heifer calves have been exported to France and eastern Europe.

We performance record all of our Chapelton Aberdeen Angus’ on the Breedplan system.  Performance figures can be accessed through the society website database or through links on the sales pages of this website.

Bulls ready to work are also available for sale privately and we welcome inquiries at any time.  We post details of our sales entries online as soon as we have them finalised.  Please Contact Us for more information.
