Kauri KMBB295 (Kauri Downs)
We bought this bull from Kauri Downs as a yearling and paid top dollar for him. He looked the part but we really bought him for his data spread, taking a bit of a punt and he has grown out into a magnificent bull, phenotypically and datawise. We are very pleased with him, and need to use him more going forward to take advantage of his class.
We bought this bull at the National, he was the reserve champion in 2017. Good tempered with Intensity's performance. He had a perfect foot score in his presale structural assessment, and has gone on to have a great impact on our herd, producing young females we have confidence in.
An incredibly powerful carcass trait bull. Top 10% across many traits, including top 1% of the breed in Australasia for both indexes. This bull has so much to offer the breed, both to stud operators and commercial.
A bull with an excellent data spread that has bred really well for us. He is a curve bender, low birth weight but with good above breed average growth, good fats and excellent IMF.
Clunes Crossing Dusty M13 (AI)(IMP AUS)
An Australian power bull with cross trait excellence. We are keen to see what the progeny are like, such is the expectation that a bull like this creates. He is in the top ten bulls of the Australian bench marking programme, across all 10 cohorts.
QUAKER HILL MILE HIGH 4EX31 (IMP USA)
John likes the Quaker Hill line Mile High comes from, particularly from a phenotype point of view. They are smart bulls. Mile High also has excellent genotype; growth, fertility and carcass traits.
Bubs Southern Charm AA31
John saw this bull in the States and liked his presence and phenotype. He is of a slightly bigger frame score, has a very thick and deep carcass and has the carcass attributes we are looking for without giving up growth and carcass weight, or phenotype.
