Paddock Sires

Below is some information on our current paddock sires.

Wirruna Lance L74

Not many bulls are as complete a package in themselves. Terrific structure, great quality, outstanding spread of numbers, lovely temperament and excellent feet. He has probably grown a hand since arriving here. I eagerly await the few calves I might retain but he is running with 50 cows, so there will be opportunities for all. I propose to collect semen for my future use, sell a small amount and offer the bull in February. I had no plans to retire when I bought him.

Yavenvale Lottery L417

Owned in partnership with Yavenvale Herefords after being purchased at the 2017 Yavenvale sale. By Churchill Stud 3134A from a lovely Spark 555 daughter. Lottery L417 has a great carcass, excellent temperament, structure and feet and is proving to be a terrific sire of quality, easily born calves who at this point are growing well. He has been used naturally and by AI.

Westmorland Trust K136

A long, well muscled, PP Trust son from an outstanding Vincent daughter WPCE82 who we sadly lost this year when she bogged in the creek. He has thrown to E82 and replicates himself well. His numbers reflect what he's done here.

Westmorland Waterhouse K129

A thick well muscled D1 flush son from a beautiful perfect footed Remittal Online daughter. WPCK127 follows, three other full brothers sold at Wodonga and Dubbo and the daughters retained. An excellent son going to Wodonga 2019 and some lovely heifers to be sold February.

Westmorland Waterhouse K129

Westmorland Waterhouse K127

Breeding as above. Probably underutilised because of the white back which he passes on mainly as spots to about 10% of his excellent progeny. A long bull, well made, great head and feet. Largely used in the commercial herd but I should have given him more stud duties.

Westmorland Waterhouse K127

Westmorland Trust K211

A bull I like a lot. A twin, raised by his mother with an outstanding twin sister who is also breeding well. His dam C126 is a lovely old T39 daughter. K211 is well muscled, quality, well made, adequately sized bull with a great head and eye. His calves are similarly described.

Elite KMPK156

What a great purchase, the perfect heifer bull. Unfortunately or fortunately K156 keeps growing and may soon be too big to use on heifers. He has a wonderful temperament, excellent feet, good head and eye, is red necked but most of his calves are not and a good set of numbers. His calves are born small but busy and grow quickly. They too have his fantastic nature.
