Arriving from Switzerland in 1976, the Grandjean family settled on a dairy farm in Ste-Perpétue in the center of Québec. The herd was of the Ayrshire breed, mostly purebred. That's when the « Margot » prefix began. After completing his studies at the ITA in Saint-Hyacinthe, Philippe returned to the farm in 1989. He then took over the herd management , his talent and knowledge allowed the herd to achieve remarkable progress. Today, Marcel and Philippe Grandjean's herd consists of 210 head with 105 cows in milk. The classification shows 9 Excellent (all with the Margot prefix) and 45 VG (90% with the Margot prefix). Therefore, one can say that 50% of the herd is classified VG and better. Many cow families helped the farm to obtain the title of Master Breeder. Cows like Margot Cookie S, Margot Lottie and Margot Luciolle are among the best known in the herd. The son of Lottie, Margot Lorenzo and the two sons of Cookie S, Margot Calimero and Margot Colargol are very popular sires and very much appreciated in the breed at the moment. Many embryos from these cows have been sold in foreign countries. Everyone who has visited the Margot herd will tell you that what is most impressive in the herd is the dept and uniformity of the animals present at the farm. For that, we must give credit to the owners of the farm. Ayrshire Canada is proud to award the title of Master Breeder to Marcel and Philippe Grandjean of Ferme Margot. Congratulations.
