REFERENCE SIRES 2019
TEXAS MOUNT K002 (AI)
Sire: KC HAAS GPS
Maternal Grandsire: BUSHS GRAND DESIGN
In 2015 we bought a quarter share in K2, who sold for $45,000. Our sale this year represents the second opportunity to purchase sons we have bred, and there are 30 of them up for grabs!
To date there are over 1000 progeny recorded by K2, as well as semen exported overseas. Through this amount of progeny analysed, his EBV accuracies are high, and he is in the top 1% for calving ease daughters; top 5% for gestation length, 400DW, 600DW and scrotal; and top 10% for calving ease direct. He’s in the top 10% or better for all $Indexes.
From observing and measuring the K2 progeny we have, there is no denying his EBV credentials. K2 is a large framed bull with plenty of length, his calves are born early with ease and they grow quickly. He is certainly the type of bull well suited to feedlot markets. Of the K2 sons on offer this year there are a number similar to his type, but there are also a number of more moderate framed types.
It’s very rare to find a bull with this much growth who equally excels for calving ease, but what interested us most was his mother. Undeniably one of the best cows out of the Texas Angus stud herd, she has 118 progeny grossing over $650,000, is still active at 15 years of age, and 25 other sons have sold into seedstock herds
LOTS: 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 13, 16, 32, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 53, 54, 55, 57, 58, 61, 63, 65, 68, 70, 71, 74, 76, 80, 84, 89, 90
GLENOCH HINMAN H221 (AI)
Sire: TUWHARETOA REGENT D145
Maternal Grandsire: HA PROGRAM 5652
Hinman’s sons have sold well over the last few years, and feature again this year. He has a beautiful slick skin type, is very structurally correct, quiet, with moderate birth and his progeny grow quickly. He now has close to 200 progeny recorded, and his IMF and carcase weight EBVs are in the top 1% of the Angus breed.
A few years ago Hinman was entered into Cohort 7 of the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program. His progeny from this program have had data recorded since birth, and have added increased accuracy right across his EBVs. Currently, the steers are in the feedlot, and we eagerly await their carcase data.
Hinman is now in the top 35% for calving ease, top 30% for birth weight and top 5% for 200 DW (and top 15% for 400 DW, top 10% for 600 DW).
Hinman continues to reside in a commercial operation for John and Guy Campbell around the Condamine and Glenmorgan districts, and at seven years old is proving himself for longevity.
His mother D80 has proven herself for fertility, with nine calves and an average calving interval of 367 days, and she also produced a top calf every time. She always calved in the first 1-2 weeks of our calving period since her first as a two year old.

AYRVALE GENERAL G18
Sire: TE MANIA BERKLEY B1
Maternal Grandsire: TE MANIA BARTEL B219
General G18 is a breed leader for calving ease, growth, fertility and carcase, and has been described as the ultimate heifer bull. He’s well balanced across traits, in a moderate frame.
General breeds on better than what he looks in his photo. With an outstanding balance of EBVs, his progeny are typically expressive in muscle pattern and eye muscle.
In 2016 we offered sons by General, and one bull topped the sale for $20,000, selling to Wattletop Angus. This year there are five sons that are as equally impressive in their phenotype as they are in their EBVs.
LOTS: 19, 22, 39, 50, 59
H P C A INTENSITY
Sire: G A R INGENUITY
Maternal Grandsire: G A R PREDESTINED
Intensity was selected for his high growth (he’s top 1% for 200, 400, 600 DW and carcase weight), muscling and marbling (top 5% for EMA and IMF). Quite a number of Intensity sons have made their way into seedstock herds for the high value traits which he excels in.
4 SONS & 8 GRANDSONS
SON LOTS: 9, 10, 40, 49
G A R SUNRISE
Sire: MCC DAYBREAK
Maternal Grandsire: S S OBJECTIVE T510 0T26
An elite athlete that has proven himself amongst the big boys for breed leading accuracy combining calving ease, trait leading growth and superior end-product merit. Moderate mature cow weights that have been producing very appealing females. The Sunrise progeny are a result of carefully selecting complementary females from the Gardiner donor herd to produce tailor made genetics that maximise value and efficiency to a complete supply chain.
LOTS: 26, 28, 29
GLENOCH LEOPOLD L270
Sire: GLENOCH HINMAN H221
Maternal Grandsire: SYDGEN TRUST 6228
A Hinman son from the Sydgen Trust daughter, Glenoch Flower H84, he sold for $10,000 in our 2017 sale to Richard Pye, Wallumbilla.
L270 was selected for use based on the productive performance of his dam and his own performance. He’s ranked in the top 1% of the breed for 200, 400, 600 day growth and carcase weight, and top 15% for IMF, in a moderate birth weight package.
LOTS: 12, 15, 88
BALDRIDGE COMPASS C041
Sire: EF COMMANDO 1366
Maternal Grandsire: STYLES UPGRADE J59
Baldridge Compass is a son of the elite donor cow Baldridge Isobel Y69, who is also the dam of the highly used sire Baldridge Beast Mode. Compass has very correct structure, is quiet, with an impressive data set. He is well on the way to being a top A.I. sire.
LOTS: 77, 83
4M ELEMENT 405
Sire: POSS ELEMENT 215
Maternal Grandsire: SITZ UPWARD 307R
Element was used for his impressive phenotype, calving ease, low birth weight and positive fats. Coupled with high growth and very negative days to calving and gestation length (top 15% and 10%), these traits make him an easy to use bull.
LOTS: 52, 60
NINDOOINBAH F707 (P) (AI) (ET) (BRANGUS)
Sire: COLE OF BRINKS 14P3 (P)
Maternal Grandsire: SONAR OF BRINKS 607L18
F707 has been a solid platform for our Brangus herd since we purchased him in 2012. F707 is 100% USA genetics, and has almost 200 progeny analysed through Breedplan. His calves are fast growing, he is one of the top proven bulls for Eye Muscle Area and is top 15% for scrotal size. F707 is still active, approaching his eighth joining season, and he is a real cow-getter.
LOTS: 33, 34, 35
GLENOCH LESGLEN L276
Sire: BALDRIDGE DOWNLOAD Z013
Maternal Grandsire: ARDROSSAN MODEST W37
L276 was selected to multiply the influence of Baldridge Waylon – a prolific sire in the USA – with the high combination of muscling, carcase weight, growth and marbling. L276 himself ranks in the top 25% for carcase weight and IMF, combined with 200, 400 and 600 day growth all in the top 20% or better.
LOTS: 42, 43, 56, 62, 81
GLENOCH LINCH L313
Sire: H P C A INTENSITY
Maternal Grandsire: ARDROSSAN DIRECTION W109
Roger really liked the muscle expression in Linch as a yearling when he was joined to K year drop females on their first rejoin. He sired 68 calves, quite impressive considering he was only a boy at joining. He scores well for calving ease and low birth weight, plus mature cow weight. He’s also in the top 1% for EMA and top 25% for IMF.
LOTS: 51, 78, 79
