From the Te Mania Sale Report:
It was not until lot 58 that the other equal high selling bull was knocked down at $23,000 to Greg and Sally Chappell, Dulverton Angus, Glen Innes, NSW. Mr Chappell said Te Mania Kilkenny K912 (AI), sired by Te Mania Governor G576 (AI) ticked all the boxes of sound structure, temperament, calving ease and adequate growth.
“We were shopping around for another top sire with a focus on eating qualities, and the strength of this herd for carcase trait bulls is widely recognised.
“The success of this bull’s sire line gave us the confidence to travel down from Glen Innes.
“The added bonus was its dam is a Mittagong family cow and our first cow about 30 years ago was Te Mania Mittagong C65; so it was going back to our successful roots in a way while also gaining the performance levels of his outcross sire”
