TEXAS MOUNT K002
11 SONS SELL
Sire: KC HAAS GPS
Maternal Grandsire: BUSHS GRAND DESIGN
In 2015 we bought a quarter share in K2, who sold for $45,000. His sons have featured in our sale over the past few years.
To date there are almost 1400 progeny recorded by K2, as well as semen exported overseas. Through this amount of progeny analysed, his EBV accuracies are high.
K2 is currently in the top 15% for calving ease, top 4% for gestation length, top 9% for 400DW, top 6% for 600DW, top 2% for scrotal, and top 4% for Feed Efficiency.
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 17 years of age, and 25 other sons have sold into seedstock herds.
GLENOCH KALLANGUR K112
9 SONS SELL
Sire: ARDROSSAN EQUATOR A241
Maternal Grandsire: TUWHARETOA REGENT D145
K112 was purchased by JK Cattle Co at the SGA bull sale in 2016 for $17,000. He has bred very well for Justin & Kate, and his sons have sold well in the sale over the past few years.
They were looking for a bull that would cover off on as many characteristics as possible, with a few non-negotiables like fertility, scrotal size and muscle expression with softness, and found that in K112.
K112 certainly has a lot of presence at every angle, and he's a bull that improves every cow he’s joined to. K112 has fantastic foot structure, and is very quiet like a lot of A241 progeny.
The cowline of this bull has a number of cows that are exceptionally well proven for longevity.
K112 offers strong growth and muscle expression with softness. He is currently in the top 4% for carcase weight and top 10% for EMA and rump fat.
GLENOCH HINMAN H221
3 SONS SELL
Sire: TUWHARETOA REGENT D145
Maternal Grandsire: HA PROGRAM 5652
Hinman’s sons have sold well over many 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 over 200 progeny recorded. His IMF is in the top 1% of the Angus breed, and his carcase weight is in the top 4%.
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.
Hinman is currently in the top 25% for both calving ease and birth weight, and is in the top 21-31% for 200, 400 and 600 Day Weights.
Hinman continues to reside in a commercial operation for John and Guy Campbell around the Condamine and Glenmorgan districts, and at nine years old has been proving himself for longevity.
His mother D80 had 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.
