Donors

We strongly believe in the power of pedigree and female lines.  While we have embraced a world of genomics and objective measurement we have never lost sight of the type of cow that has blessed us with good fortune for over three quarters of a century.  These donors are a tribute to my father and an appreciation of everything he taught us- they are our edge.

Ben Nevis Jean G124

Jean G124 was one of our favourite cows who we sadly lost due to an accident.  She was 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.  Luckily we have has 6 ET daughters by the sensational sire Ascot Hallmark that are in the top 1% of the breed for all their indexes and are all destined for the donor pen based on their progenys’ performance. That’s why we believe in the power of female lines.
