As well as running Newark Livestock Market the Gascoines Group also farms in its own right, running Mill Farm, Upton, Nottinghamshire.
Mill Farm, which the group has owned for many years totals 400 acres, with 300 acres of arable land let on a Farm Business Tenancy and 100 acres of grassland which is home to the Gascoines herd of 40 pedigree Limousin cows managed by experienced stockman Alisdair Smith.
The pedigree herd at Mill Farm has been established to provide a source of top quality Limousin genetics for sale both locally and nationally.
As such the pedigree herd is fully performance recorded and has recently started a rigorous programme of health testing for BVD, IBR, Johnes and Leptospirosis.
Stock bulls currently working in the pedigree herd include the highly thought of Dinmore Escort, a Wildoge Vantastic son which is full brother to the noted female Dinmore Elle, and the recently purchased Mereside Hallmark. This exciting Dormeur son is out of the Vagabond daughter Mereside Enabel and was bought for 18,000gns in February 2014.
