OCELOT – CH5827
In 2019 the Society imported a young bull from France called Ocelot. He was bred by the Merlet family, highly regarded as one of the leading herds in France. Ocelot was selected as a young calf for his proven pedigree. His dam Fatcha, is one of the best cows at Merlet’s, having bred the successful show bull, Jingle (pictured below), who stood at SCEA Raymond’s and is available through AI at over €100/straw. Ocelot’s father is the easy calving, Gousset, who was used as a stock bull in Merlet’s herd. His pedigree would suggest that he should breed easy calving Charolais Cattle with good maternal qualities, with Berry Mic, Valseur, Cristal and Romeo in his back pedigree.

Straws are now available from Dovea Genetics at €10/straw.
