We continue to import semen from Warnham Park & Woburn Abbey plus, we have stocks from the ex Stanfield Stud sires. These fine sires are an example of what’s on offer –
Aragorn taken for safari 2012 and at that time he was No.3 SCI at 635 points, No.3 CIC at 294 points and No.2 for weight at 22.3kg.
Jim Scourgie cut 8.2kg from 4yr. old Lot 7 in the 2013 sale by Aragorn, it was not that long ago that Hotspur cut an industry record 4yr. head also at 8.2kg.
Sir Edmond Warnham son of Aragorn, unique antler at 50” in length and heavy, hardest of all the traits to select for, sold at auction for $80,000.
Herbrand needs no introduction of course, probably the finest Woburn sire to date rivalled only by Bloomsbury of course grandsire of SCI no.1 Woody, plus Balunky and many more superstars sitting just under 700 SCI in 2015 waiting to pounce and sons cutting over 13kg of velvet. Bangor of course what a stunning young sire for velvet and safari combined.

Taken as a trophy with a world record weight (for centuries of recorded history) and a world record CIC score, eclipsing the greatest head known to man, the Moritzburg head of 1586 that was 19.86kg. His extraordinary performance included records for age as follows: Record 4yr velvet at 8.3kg SAII, Record 5yr hard antler at 17.25kg, Record 6yr hard antler at 19.25kg, Record 8yr hard antler at 22.3kg, world record trophy 23.4kg and 309 CIC points.

69 points at 7 yrs – 2012/13 saw a much nicer looking head, round horn and massively thick. Sadly after the rut 2013 we lost Callum, so very few opportunities left for semen from this sire.
AI SIRES AT WARNHAM & WOBURN
DGS will continue to import new genetics from both Woburn and Warnham for our industry’s benefit. Both Parks have nominated new sires and a little semen remains from Warnham’s Bartholemu and Woburn’s Torrington. All enquires welcome and semen allocated on a first come first served basis.
Torrington shown at 4yrs. long and heavy, 34 points, antler above 11.5kg (a gain in one year of 3.5kg). He is out of the park therefore complete outcross for Woburn enthusiasts.
Son of the great Duncan. We have limited stock of Bartholemu left. Heavy wide and multi possibly the best Stag at Warnham since World War II. This head 14kg and 578 I.O.A.
A unique Woburn sire 210kg at 2 yrs. Like Torrington selected for length of Antler.
New sire at Warnham’s deer farm. Son of St Cuthbert. His dam line is star studded back to Norton sire of Norton II, Hercules, Bruno, Neptune IV and Jumbo. This head is 9.5kg which grown at Warnham is exceptional for age and will be much bigger in NZ.
