Brian Kirkwood with Somerview Kakadu, Somerview Bentley, Somerview Hamish and Somerview Rebel, which will be offered at Big Country next month.BRIAN and Glenda Kirkwood of Somerview Red Brahman Stud have been consistent supporters of the Big Country Sale at Charters Towers and are currently making the final preparations to their draft of 11 bulls in readiness for the sale on February 7.
The Somerview draft has been catalogued from lot 10 to 16 and lot 49 to 52, and features five polled bulls. Eight of the bulls have been sired by Palm-vale Brooklyn which has been a leading sire in the Somerview Stud program since he was purchased at the Rockhampton Brahman Week sales in 2007.
“Brooklyn has been invaluable in our operation,” Mr Kirkwood said. “A polled bull, he has a wonderful nature and is hard to fault in type.”
Three of the bulls have been sired by Kandoona Vantage, another great polled sire at Somerview.
The draft will kick off with lot 10, Somerview Bentley, a bull Mr Kirkwood is confident will attract the attention of discerning buyers.
“Bentley is a really impressive red sire of good, even colour with excellent length and muscling pattern,” he said. “He stands on the same good bone exhibited by his sire, Palmvale Brooklyn, making him a bull that would be hard to dismiss.”
Mr Kirkwood is also looking forward to offering lot 14, Somerview Commodore.
“Commodore shows ideal natural muscling, heavy bone, depth of body and smoothness of finish,” he said.
For more information, please contact Brian or Glenda Kirkwood on (07) 4788 5525.
“He is an attractive Red bull and features a masculine, broad head.”
“Upon semen testing our bulls recently we were thrilled to discover the outstanding semen counts exhibited by the bulls.”
