Donors

We are fortunate compared with most studs in that we are backed by a large grass based commercial herd. This puts us on the same level as our clients.
We also have access to bigger numbers and different selection methods than just using EBV’s including actual carcase feedback, and ultrasound scanning data. Having this additional information gives us a higher degree of confidence we have chosen the right animals to multiply via their use as Stud Sires or Donor Dams.

Ben Nevis Jean G124

Simply our favourite cow and top performer for growth and IMF in the 2011 contemporary. Super docile and large framed with a silky skin.  In our 2016 sale her son Ben Nevis Loaded Gun by Jack’s Joker sold for $26,000 for stud duties at Cascade Angus, NSW.  She has 6 ET calves on the ground this year by the sensational sire Ascot Hallmark that are in the top 1% of the breed for all their indexes.
