The Lagacé prefix is surely one of the most renowned and respected in the Ayrshire Breed. This prefix has always been synonymous with excellence for production as well as conformation. Richard Lagacé represents the fourth generation of Ayrshire breeders. He joined the family business in 1986 as an associate and became owner of the farm in 1994. By being awarded the title of Master-Breeder, Richard becomes the third generation to have accomplished this feat, following in his grandfather Jean-Paul and his father Jean-Guy's footsteps. Continuing the tradition implemented by his predecessors on the farm, Richard has always aimed for balance in his breeding program, never using one bull on a large scale. This allowed him to develop cow families that stand out in production and conformation. The most influential were the Mode, Mandy and Blanche families. This last family won numerous championships at shows for the Lagacé herd, and it's not over. Many bulls from the Mode and Mandy families were selected by AI units. Among them, Lagacé Billy, Lagacé Marathon and more recently Lagacé Modem are the most famous. Richard understands the importance of promoting his animals and his herd's genetics, this is why he takes part in many exhibitions and is always available to greet visitors at his farm. Over the years, many embryos from the best animals in the Lagacé herd have been sold worldwide. Richard is always ready to consign a good animal at large-scale sales. After many years of effort, the hard work has paid off, allowing the Lagacé herd to be awarded the title of Master Breeder. Ayrshire Canada offers the Ferme Lagacé & Fils, its sincere congratulations.
