This year we will catalogue 83 two-year-old Angus Bulls, forty five of these are by:
- Esselmont Lotto L3 (14) – 4 Grade 7 sons
- Boonaroo Gravity G13 (17) – 4 Grade 7 sons
- Spring Cove Gentleman Jack (14) – 4 Grade 7 sons
Note that both B. Gravity G13 and SC Gentlyman Jack are ‘Outcross’ sires from the current mainstream. GRAVITY was proven through the Angus Young Sire Benchmark Program. He is a true ‘all rounder’ and really suits our desire in producing progeny who excel in the four VALUE DETERMINING TRAITS of FERTILITY (Maternal Stayability); NFI-F, RBY & IMF%. SPRING COVE GENTLEMAN JACK was originally spotted in the USA by Tom Hill (Agri-Beef Livestock consultant) and Dick Whale for his muscling and Marbling, Tom acknowledges the Spring Cove Carol family (Gentleman Jack’s dam line) is a stand out.
The Lotto L3 sons are once again a special set of fourteen, including 4 grade 7’s, particularly keen to follow the performance of D. Pierro P92 who has scored 10 for genetic marbling under the Neogen/Igenity system. Not surprising he is out of a B. Frankel daughter.
D. Larry L154 has done a super job over the ‘L’ cows note we are extremely grateful to the Knowla Team for allowing us to use him after they had used him as a Yearling, thanks James and Ted. D. L154 has proven to be a major foot improver, we are awaiting his carcase performance results from the Young Angus Benchmark Program.
HERD REBUILD IS HAPPENING:
At the time of sorting the bulls for the catalogue we had numerous enquiries for heifer bulls. Note we have set the catalogue up to identify likely heifer bull prospects:
- Those out of Heifers born unassisted – Lots 26 to 31.
- Those out of cows, deemed heifer safe – Lots 32 – 51.
For a total of 26. Note we did use Lot 1 P288 a son of the calving sensation D. Montjeu M13 over Stud heifers. Remember when joining maidens its our belief the heifers should weigh 300-320kg – not average, each individual and 460kg at two when calving.
The Knowla McCaw M20 sons are heifer safe with the ability to produce progeny with adequate growth so too the B. Gravity G13’s the SC Gentleman Jacks and The Lotto L3’s.
