Angus farma Pěčín
"I started breeding Aberdeen Angus in 2002 with six pieces, since then the number of cattle has risen to less than 300."
I originally bought 6 Aberdeen Angus cows (originally from Canada) in 2002 only as a hobby. At that time I owned only 6 hectares of pastures. Over time, hobby has become a major source of living for the whole family. The number of cattle increased from the original six to 243 of which 110 mothers, 4 breeding bulls, 80 calves, 15 bulls and 34 heifers (2014). The number of hectares increased to 180 own and 90 leased mainly from Trhové Sviny or private individuals.
Along with that, it was necessary to purchase many agricultural machinery for soil cultivation and hay drying and hay making. It was also necessary to create facilities for wintering animals.
Thanks to my own ability to breed animals with the use of insemination, I have achieved top results as a breeder of cattle.
This is evidenced by the numerous awards at national and other cattle exhibitions.
