The Huonfels Brahman Stud will offer a quality line of three red bulls and three grey bulls, along with a red heifer and grey heifer at the Big Country Sale next month.THE Bethel family of Huonfels Brahman Stud says the 30 inches of rain recorded at their property since September have provided a valuable test for their bulls and females.
The Huonfels Brahman Stud will offer a quality line of three red bulls and three grey bulls, along with a red heifer and a grey heifer at the Big Country Sale next month.
Mr Bethel said the bulls and heifers on offer had been forced to cope with very trying conditions over the past few months, but had emerged in good condition.
“They certainly have had their share of mud and slop to cope with, but have come through in good fettle,” he said.
The first offering in the Big Country ring for the Huonfels Stud this year is lot 46, Huonfels Waverley, an impressive young son of Wilarandy S Brazillian Man out of a very consistent, high-performing daughter of JY Jimmie, in Huonfels Reva (AI).
“Reva has another cracking bull calf at foot now and is shaping up as one of our better red stud cows,” Mr Bethel said.
“Waverley has tremendous fleshing, a very masculine head and a faultless temperament.”
The next offering is lot 47, Huonfels Walker Magnum (AI), an impressive scurred son of Winchester Magnum 999 out of a Redmont daughter which is a half-sister to the legendary Huonfels Jacob Rio.
“This is the best red dam line in our stud and Walker reinforces this fact,” he said. “He is a bull in every sense of the word and will do a great job in any herd.
“Walker has great length, bone and muscling, with a very masculine head, which is hard to find in polled cattle.”
Also on offer is lot 48, Huonfels Vinn Magnum (AI), another clean, polled son of Winchester Magnum 999.
“He has gained in excess of two kilos a day in the feedlot and will mature into a massive bull.”
The first of the Huonfels heifer draft enters the ring as lot 76 in Huonfels Wanderlust Rio (AI, ET), a magnificent clean poll by Winchester Magnum 999. The second of the Huonfels heifer draft is lot 77, Huonfels Ellie Rose Manso (AI, ET), a lovely thick young embryo heifer from Huonfels’ best grey dam line.
Lot 232, Huonfels Virginius Manso (AI), will be the first of the Huonfels grey bulls to enter the ring.
“He is a long and thick bull with a fantastic hind quarter and bone, and at 30 months is the oldest of our draft,” Mr Bethel said.
Lot 233, Huonfels Sir Vadis Manso (AI), is a quality polled son of JDH Sir Andre Manso out of one of the most consistent grey polled cows in the Huonfels’ embryo team.
The Huonfels draft will conclude with lot 234, Huonfels Warrigal Manso (AI, ET), a son of JDH Martin Manso.
