Q45 - (HBR) A Kruse son to start the sale and one of my picks. A good mix of pedigree with Kruse and the Bando cow line. Long, deep sided bull with a soft loose skin type. He was used as a yearling in the stud to back up the AI programme on stud heifers. Just below average birth, all growths and carcase in the top 20%, high milk and scrotal. Highly recommended, will suit heifers or cows.
Q91 - (APR) Kelly’s favourite from birth, out of a lovely, young soft coated high volume Consensus cow. This fellow has always been an eye catcher in the paddock with his long, deep soft body, short hair type. A very athletic free moving bull, high for growth, milk carcase and scrotal, will breed tremendous replacement females with a bit more frame.
Q51 - (APR) Just like his brother before him, a very similar type of bull and would make a good pair with Q57. Has the early growth, carcase, and milk. Again, if you need to increase your cow frame and growth for feeder steers any of the 38 Special bulls will do it.
Q32 - (HBR) I really like this bull, well balanced long body, heavy muscle, good calving ease, low birth with plenty of growth, carcase and marble, will suit heifers or cows. Watch for the raw data sale sheet for the birth weight to sale weight spread, some of these Mediators were the lightest born and are some of the heaviest in the sale.
Q38 - (APR) note all Mediators are out of two-year-old heifers, this one has the backing of a Reality dam, taking the calving ease to top 5% and low birth at top 6%, but growth still well above average, ‘sleep easy’ heifer joining and still suits cows.
Q29 - (APR) the Lakeside sons have all been catalogued together as they are very consistent in type and all out of very similar females. Q29 carries a lovely muscle shape with a soft skin type he moves well in the paddock with impeccable structure. You will find it hard to fault any of our bulls on feet, leg and gait.
Q27 - (HBR) Love this bull, so soft and long carries the typical high body mass the Lakeside sons have. Below average birth in a moderate package, out of an older cow H32 who’s sons have always shown a little extra volume and had a son sell to Goondi Angus a few years back, suit heifers and cows.
Q39 - (HBR) Mediator son with typical muscle shape they all carry, out of a really nice Hallmark L58 heifer and again another ‘sleep easy’ heifer bull with calving ease in top 10% and low birth top 5% still plenty of growth and milk carcase and marble, suit heifers and cows.
Q116 - (APR) Typical Nobleman son on type, out of a thicker set cow, suit cows.
Q73 - (HBR) Nice to have a favourite in this part of the catalogue. He is here because he fits a run of bulls with the moderate framed calving ease that we have catalogued last. A Kruse son with the great calving ease and really low birth in the top 6%. I really like this fellow, he stands out in the paddock on type and very balanced right throughout, impeccable structure, suit heifers and cows.
