Bull Weights Exceed Expectations

Finished weighing the bulls today and their weights are above expectations.  Top weight Lot 20 at 1002kgs and averaged 807kgs. More information

GROUP2013

This year 15 bulls have cleared 900kgs which is an amazing result as they have all done it off oaten and forage rape crops.  The sale bulls average EBVs are in the top 15 and 20% of the breed for growth, caracse weight and RBY.  Texas has also made a significant jump in caracse EBVs which is an excellent result as our program doesn't compromise phenotype, weight for age, temperament, fertility and longevity just to gain the maximum genetic leap in IMF at the expense of these other important traits.

 

Lot 20 Texas Dynamite G500 (AI)(ET) hit 1002kgs today and not far behind was Lot 21 Texas Infinity G559 (AI)(ET) weighing a hefty 972kgs, while Lot 5 Texas Dynamite G560 (AI)(ET) was close on their heels at 970kgs, the full brother to the 2011 top priced bull that made $30,000.
