Kedar Brown Swiss
Meet the Lochhead Family
The Lochhead family have farmed at Beyond the Burn, nr Dumfries for nearly 100 years. The current generation of Lochheads' Gavin, Jane & Jonny, introduced the Brown Swiss cattle when restocking after Foot and Mouth disease claimed the previous herd.
In the short few years that Swiss have been roaming the hills at Mouswald, the herd ha developed a number of world class families, won countless shows and begun selling stock and embryos around the world.
The new farm building were erected in 2012 and include 3 De Leval robots. The herd now consists of 130 pure bred Swiss plus 270 followers.
In 2016, Gavin & Jane set up the latest Kedar development, The Kedar Cheese Company, making and selling Mozzerella and Mountain Cheese.
