Visited a suckler farmer in Co.Laois to scan a herd of suckler cows for pre-breed scanning and pregnancy scanning. Included in the group of cows were seven Basida cows which originated from France. The cows produce cross bred calves when crossed with Parthenaise bulls. However, the temperament of these cows leaves a lot the be desired. Four of the cows had excellent temperament while the other three were dangerous and in a group of cows it is very difficult to deal with.
