We have our annual bull sale on the 19th August, I have 10 two yr olds and 4 yearling bulls in it. I have just been taking photos for the catalogue and this one turned out OK.

He is by Ardrossan Equator A241, a Papa Equator son.

GAR Momentum full brother is the best Angus bull here. There are 11 GAR bulls spending the summer by the catch pen.

wbvs,
What is your best sire group? Nice bulls..

JS, I really find that hard to say, I have representives from all sires in my top group. If I am happy with a sire I like to use them for 3 years and then move on. With only a small herd of 25-30 cows that gives me a chance to retain some nice heifers but not get too top heavy with any one sire. I must say I have been very happy with the SAV Thunderbirds, they have been very easy on heifers, not overly small just a very consistent moderate size you don't seem to get any extremes but they are very vigorous calves that hit the ground running and grow fast. The bulls are very easy to sell, again they are very even across the board and are the first that people pick out to buy.
