Four bulls up for auc­tion at sale

Renowned qual­ity bulls

The Western Star - - ADVERTISING FEATURE TROPICAL BREEDS -

GARRY and Jil­lian Lit­tle will of­fer four reg­is­tered bulls at this year’s sale un­der the River­land pre­fix and cat­a­logued as Lots 51 to Lot 54.

All four are sired by Bundy D-Max and are part of the first crop of bulls to be sold by this young sire. Growth, weight for age, good tem­per­a­ment and type are char­ac­ter­is­tic of D-Max’s calves, with a very high keep rate at se­lec­tion time.

The stud se­lects on per­for­mance, along with struc­tural sound­ness, growth, fer­til­ity, tem­per­a­ment and breed type. The foun­da­tion is a cow herd with depth of breed­ing that, by ne­ces­sity, must calve, rear to wean­ing suc­cess­fully with no help, fol­lowed by a com­mon sense ap­proach to se­lec­tion and a com­mit­ment to breed­ing bulls that main­tain the qual­i­ties drought­mas­ters are renowned for.

River­land Mo­catta 1538/7 (Lot 51) is a heifer’s first calf and was the best per­form­ing bull at 200 and 400 days in his par­tic­u­lar calv­ing group, and he has main­tained that po­si­tion. He sells with River­land Mara­noa 1589/7 (Lot 52), also a high ranked per­former.

R Man­dalay 1575/7and R Mi­rage 1570/7 (sell­ing as Lots 53 and 54) are both ranked in the top half.

River­land bulls are el­i­gi­ble for en­try into WA and have cur­rent vac­ci­na­tions for three day sick­ness, bot­u­lism and seven in one, and were three germ blooded at wean­ing.
