The first Ayrshire arrived at Blackaddar Farm in 1910. Blackaddar became a well-known prefix in the Ayrshire breed for its high production, strong conformation and longevity. The living proof is Blackaddar Starlet EX-90-3E, who has produced a total of 135,804 kg of milk in eleven lactations; an average of 12,346 kg per lactation. Presently, twelve cows in Canada have produced over 100,000 kg of milk. Three of them have the Blackaddar prefix and are in first, second and fifth place. The herd’s strength comes from its cow families, especially that of Lundale Hope. Many well-known animals such as Milkmaid, Margot, Emily 2 and many others who left their mark in the farm’s history are descendants of this 8* brood cow. Besides raising good cows, the Boswall family also raised and are continuing to raise many good bulls. Blackaddar M M Patrick and Blackaddar BB Kellogg are two of their many proven bulls. Patrick distinguished himself as an exceptional sire of sons while BB Kellogg has marked our show rings in a spectacular way. Over the decades, the Blackaddar prefix has become synonymous of quality and high production.
