Last Bir­rahlee draft

Countryman - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Bir­rahlee Brah­man stud, of Wil­liams, will of­fer eight red bulls in its fi­nal sale at the WALSA In­vi­ta­tional Narn­gulu Bull Sale on April 11.

The stud has sold-off its regis­tered fe­males and the last draft of bulls will see stud prin­ci­pal Sue Pater­son leave the seed stock beef cat­tle in­dus­try af­ter 24 years of breed­ing.

This year’s Narn­gulu sale team is rep­re­sented by two sires, Bir­rahlee Rocket (P) 07/206 and Charlesville Ro­drick 1845, with the for­mer pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent bulls con­sis­tently over the years.

“Bir­rahlee Rocket which goes back to Queens­land sire Fairy Springs Red Dol­lar, a strong poll sire, has five sons in the sale,” Ms Pater­son said.

“Show­ing ex­cel­lent con­for­ma­tion of its sire, Rocket, Bir­rahlee Maestro 16/60, was a March 2016-drop and has a pro­duc­tive sleek red coat and very neat sheath.

“Maestro is the one of the younger bulls to be of­fered.

“Re­flect­ing the heavy muscling and good length of its sire, sale bull Bir­rahlee Bur­ley (PS) 16/54, by Rocket, was a Fe­bru­ary 2016-drop and would suit heavy steer or heifer re­place­ment pro­duc­tion in a va­ri­ety of en­vi­ron­ments.”

Ms Pater­son said Bir­rahlee Emale (P) 16/56, sired by Rocket, born on Fe­bru­ary 28, 2016, also had ex­cel­lent mus­cle de­vel­op­ment and length of body and would suit the heavy steer mar­ket as well pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent fe­male re­place­ments.

All bulls are vac­ci­nated with seven-in-one, tick fever, and long-range bo­tulism. The bulls are all se­men tested with good re­sults and are pom­pes-free and tested neg­a­tive for BVDV.
