Lot 8 Thornleigh Legume R221 (AI) (HPR) (H#)
Legume R221 is by our home-bred 2017 Brisbane Grand Champion – L371. L371 has proven himself to be a very consistent short gestation sire, ensuring calving ease. Legume R221 is a big stretchy bull with a great skin and slick hair type. He is structurally hard to fault as is his top quality mum – J283. Heavily pigmented and short marked, he would cross well with any breed of female. He was our highest scanning EMA bull and with a raw marbling scan of 6.4%, he promises high carcase merit.
Lot 9 Thornleigh Rotor R337 (H)
Rotor R337 is another Cara Park Unique son oozing quality. He has tremendous softness with a short, smooth hair type, well laid in shoulder and a very desirable head and eye set. He will be ideal for use on heifers but will pass enough growth to his progeny and with a 5.8% raw marbling and good external fat to muscle ratio, carcase quality will be ideal.
Lot 24 Thornleigh R390 (HPR) (H#)
R390 is a big robust Lotus Legion son – he has as much natural muscle expression as any in our draft, with great spring over his rib. He had the second highest raw Eye Muscle Area when scanned in March with ideal fat cover and a very solid 5.2% for marbling. Like all the Legion progeny, he is full of performance.
Lot 25 Thornleigh R256 (HPR) (H#)
R256 is another of the terrific Lotus Legion sons. He has muscle to burn and extra length of body so he will always produce calves that will be heavy on the scales. He is a higher yielding type bull but still registered a commendable 5.2% marbling score. His great set of EBVs tell an accurate story. He has a really nice mother in M245, who has a sensational Black Hawk heifer calf at foot at the moment.
Lot 26 Thornleigh Romney R346 (TW) (H)
Romney R346 was from one of our really good producing females D195, who never had an ordinary calf. A Cara Park Unique son, R346 is a higher yielding shape going back to Ribstone 83S, but still would be able to do reliable service on heifers. He has the desirable high muscle, high fat combination and scanned a tremendous 6.0% for marbling – you can buy this bull with confidence.
Lot 27 Thornleigh Rhinestone R382 (H#)
