I judged Virginian Grand Champion at Wodonga in 2010 and we purchased a semen share.
He has proven to be an outstanding carcase sire being in the top 1% of the breed for IMF, top 5% for EMA and has positive fat figures.
Magnum has set a new standard for packing heaps of carcase into an attractive package.35 sons have averaged $8000 and his daughters are producing sons with outstanding muscle shape.
Yavenvale Functional F273
Functional was our pick and 2nd top price at the 2012 Yavenvale sale.
He has a beautiful carcase, good structure and excellent temperament.First sons will be available in 2014.
South Bukalong Wallace 2 (P)
South Bukalong Wallace 2 (P) was purchased by Yavenvale Herefords for $18,000 at the 2005 South Bukalong on-property sale. Upon recomendation from the Pearce family we purchased a semen share in 2011 looking for good females as an introduction into Polled genetics. The Wally daughters are stand outs – tremendous milking ability with near perfect udders, easy calving and excellent temperament. A true curve bender, Wally is a trait leader for GL, birth weight, milk, scrotal size, EMA and IMF and is in top 1% of the breed for all indexes. Wally sons and daughters consistently scan high IMF % with very good EMAs.
