BULLS THAT WORK is our belief and we cover all bases from fertility, performance data, adaptation and customer satisfaction. Our breeding philosophy for our 600 females is that they must calve in our calving period every year. Our bulls must graze, adapt and perform quickly, with minimum inputs.
We offer bulls and females for sale privately all year round, and hold an annual on-property bull sale in August each year. In 2013 we will be offering 152 bulls at our 22nd annual sale.
The cow family that features most prominently in the Gems of Glenoch catalogue is the productive Flower family – there are 79 Flowers on offer!
This sale represents the largest offering of this family in Australia since the Wallah dispersal in 1973.

She has a cracking bull, M129 by K2, that will be in the top group in this year’s sale. He’s gained 1.63 kg per day on grass over summer.
D214 weighed 694kg when she weaned her N88 heifer in March and her performance gives her Diamond status. She’s a real powerhouse Flower. Her sire B125 produced a super group of 42 progeny as a yearling.
The Gems of Glenoch sale represents close to 50 years of breeding by the Boshammer and Atkin families, and will feature all females born 2013 and prior. It truly features the “heart of our herd”.
The SGA program is known for its focus on bulls that work. These females are the hardworking mothers and sisters of those bulls, and have evolved under strict commercial selection criteria in extensive Queensland conditions.
All calving data is provided in the catalogue, to demonstrate the number of calves and average calving interval these cows have achieved since they first calved at two years old.
