Bred by Brian and Ann Thomson. Used on loan for 2 seasons. A bull with tremendous volume. Trait leader for 400 day weight. Recently sent to Silver Ferns Farms processing and had a carcass weight of 808kg a record for that plant. Very good temperament, feet and leg structure. Good EMA. No calving problems.
Bred by Rick and Sue McDouall in New South Wales. I brought the semen from this bull at the charity auction at the Australian Word Tour AGM in 2011 and I thought that Dar Giess from the US could afford to pay a bit more for it. Turns out I was wrong. Lucky for me fortune favours the brave?! Albeit on a small number of progeny he is the best carcass scanning bull I have used so far with positive figures in all categories which is rare indeed. Going forward this has the makings of a very worthwhile and valuable blood line.
Brought from Ross and Corrine Kearny in 2008. Medium frame with outstanding thickness and soft full fleshing. He has left easy calving early maturing progeny. His EMA is down a little but is currently 1st equal for IMF on the NZ red South Devon Sire list. He is an excellent example of why we should have herd tours as I would never have known about him otherwise.
Son of Westhams Poseidon. Used for one season. A thick deep bodied bull with good growth. Thought he was “the one”. Good EMA but disappointing IMF. Gone!
