A date has yet to be set for a court hearing.

A 50-year-old man has been charged with fraud and reckless culpable conduct after an investigation involving pedigree Limousin cattle, according to a spokesperson for Police Scotland.

The spokesperson outlined that a date has yet to be set for a court hearing.

The Scottish Farmer reports that the news comes following an investigation into possibly incorrect information on the passport of the Limousin bull, Jaegerbomb.

The champion AI bull came under the spotlight after there were doubts raised in relation to his parentage; his dam was later identified as Ballinloan Geneva.

The bull was deregistered by the British Limousin Cattle Society and his passport was withdrawn by the British Cattle Movement Service.

In a statement at the time, the British Limousin Cattle Society, said: “The cause appears to be errors relating to the registration of either the date of birth and/or the parentage of the animals concerned.”

The society informed its breeders that the animals listed "may not now be used for pedigree use or in any wider circumstance where pedigree status is required".

Dispersal sale

On social media on January 15th, the owners of the prize-winning herd said that they felt “let down” by the British Limousin Cattle Society over the handling of the Jaegerbomb saga and that a dispersal sale would take place on Saturday, May 16th, 2020 at Borderway Mart, Carilsle.

The Gunnerfleet Limousin herd was sold ahead to Garrowby Farms ahead of the planned dispersal sale.
