TCCM208   Lot 1   Thornleigh P Mongoose M208 (P).

Eye pigment 100/100. M208 was used over stud cows last summer and will have calves on the ground this spring. He is long, sound footed with a great skin and hair type. Wirruna G285 has bred the house down for us and many of the good bulls in the catalogue are sons. F237 has been a very consistent producer for us. POLL GENETICS.

 

TCCM332_2   Lot 2   Thornleigh H 374 Maddocks M332 (H).

Eye pigmemt 100/100. The first of our Cara Park Unique sons, M332 is an exceptionally long bull with a lovely top line and extra extension through the front end – clean sheathed and good footed. His dam B267, has been a great breeder for us and year after year produced top end bulls including J281 to top our 2015 bull sale at $13,000. He has a solid set of numbers that has him indexing at the front end of the breed. 100% HORNED GENETICS

 

TCCM311 Lot 3   Thornleigh P 285 McCosker M311 (P).

Eye pigment 100/100. A really modern type of bull here with a higher yielding carcass type in this STUD SIRE PROSPECT. M311 has outstanding muscle content but remains as soft as butter. He has a lovely short, soft hair type. All the G285 progeny have outstanding temperaments, sound feet and legs and extra testicular volume. We purchased G285 to join to heifers with a 3.8 birth weight. As time does not permit us to weigh calves at birth, our birth weights relate directly to breed links and are influenced by 600 day performance. By virtue of the fact that G285’s progeny are performing so highly, his birth weight is slowly rising. It is a failing of Breedplan that we can’t avoid unless we weigh all our calves. HEIFER’S FIRST CALF. POLL GENETICS.

 

TCCM327   Lot 4   Thornleigh P 285 Mallett M327 (P).

Eye pigment 100/100. From a similar mould as Lot 3, M327 has a fraction more muscle content and a slightly heavier bone structure. He is almost faultless in his structure and will fit as many production systems as any bull in the catalogue. His mother, J337, is one of our very good young mothers. POLL GENETICS.

TCCM340   Lot 5   Thornleigh P 285 McLeod M340 (P).

Eye pigment 100/100. Another G285 son, M340 shows a bit more scale with as strong a constitutional type as you’ll find. The catalogue has any number of really top bulls by G285 and this bull is as impressive as any. His head and eye set is what our industry needs to ensure trouble-free longevity. POLL GENETICS.

 

 TCCM308   Lot 6   Thornleigh H 374 McGrath M308 (H).

Eye pigment 100/100. M308 is another Unique son with extra muscling – a deep chested meat bull, his dam has been a very strong producer for us and this bull is possibly her best calf. I saw one of his maternal brothers working for a client last season and he was doing a tremendous job. 100% HORNED GENETICS.

 

TCCM345   Lot 7   Thornleigh P 14 McAllister M345 (P).

Eye pigment 100/100.  STUD SIRE PROSPECT. The first of an outstanding draft of young Courallie J015 sons (who is a son of the breed leading Yarram Unique F181.) This bull covers a lot of ground.

J015 is a top 5% indexing sire and his progeny reflect this. 100% HORNED GENETICS. See photo of his dam, J289, as a show heifer
