BRAELYN Here­fords have been in op­er­a­tion for al­most 40 years us­ing se­lec­tive breed­ing un­der com­mer­cial con­di­tions.

And for 15 years they have been as­sess­ing feed­back in­for­ma­tion from Whyalla Feed­lot for growth and car­case traits.

Braelyn bulls will pro­duce prog­eny to hit mar­ket spec­i­fi­ca­tions.

Their ob­jec­tive is to pro­duce easy care here­fords of mod­er­ate frame with milk tooth EU steers en­ter­ing Whyalla Feed­lot at Texas at 450–500kg, gain­ing weight and mar­bling when fed for 120 days.

Here­ford bulls, when crossed, will im­prove mar­ket­ing op­tions through MSA com­pli­ance, while pure­breds will at­tract pre­mi­ums into JBS Here­ford Boss and Nip­pon Here­ford re­serve brands.

Braelyn Here­fords have cat­a­logued four horned bulls for the Toowoomba Beef Expo Spring Clas­sic Sale at 10am on Thurs­day, Au­gust 31, at the show­grounds.

Horned and three polled bulls are cat­a­logued for the Monto All Breed Bull Sale at 9am on Satur­day, Septem­ber 9.

Cat­a­logues are avail­able from Land­mark Toowoomba and Monto Cat­tle and Coun­try.

A new polled sire in­tro­duced this year is Al­len­dale Wash­ing­ton G82.

He has been used in the Al­len­dale stud and was se­lected for his great struc­ture along with low birth weight and high mar­bling (IMF) fig­ures on BREEDPLAN.

His sire Water­house is a lead­ing sire within the breed while his dam has five sons used in studs, in­clud­ing top price at Dubbo in 2016, pur­chased by Devon Court.
