Interesting new genetics feature at this year’s Southern Cross Bull Sale with the introduction of new polled and horned bloodlines.
Please note we have a new sale date this year due to a long standing date clash with Yarrawonga which effects several of our clients buying at both sales. We hope this will be beneficial but we welcome your feedback if it causes anyone concern. New date is Tuesday 15th September at 12:30 pm following Warraba Park on the Monday.
Mr Hereford (Poll)(imp USA) sons have more muscle shape than any other sire line we have used. No more semen is available in this sire who has had a real impact in the US reducing birth weight and adding carcase shape. We had some of the first sons available in Australia last year and more this year with generally good pigment and skins and a lot of punch and performance.
Sons include J023, J022, J043 and J074.
Tycolah Jack Flash, a polled Karina Cherry son has bred very well out of 1st calf heifers with 4 sons making the sale. They are consistently dark, slick skinned polls with high calving ease figures and positive IMF.
Sons include J019, J018, J030 and J086.
Talbalba Valuer (H) bred so well at Lotus that Tony insisted we bring him back home to use with good results. They are deep bodied easy doing cattle with lovely skins and good eyes. They weigh well with High EMA, positive IMF and positive fats.
Sons include J026, J082 and J116.
Talbalba Vampire(H) has some good sons at the sale including J093, a very thick deep bodied bull with a high milking dam by W251.
Yarram Unique F181 with outstanding figures, has left some good calves including J033 who was our pick heifer bull to use this year. He has high calving ease, muscle and marbling.
Bowmont Storm C115 never fails to disappoint but has now finished his breeding career. He has been one of the most consistent bulls we have used for structure, muscle, performance and cosmetics. He is represented by J069, J217, J197 and K001 all top bulls.
Yavenvale Functional has several poll sons in the sale who are good types and should be easy calving. J051, J088 and J141 are worth a look.
