Lot 65 is an ideal bull for grass finishing programs with a high net feed efficiency ebv and calving ease, by Wattletop Franklin. Equal second top price of $10,000 went to repeat client Nareen Station for Lot 67, and the Perryman Family for Lot 15. Lot 67, Weeran Perth VHWP311 is a terrific calving ease son of Wattletop Franklin, with a growth spread in the top 1% for the breed. Lot 15, Weeran Pegasus VHWP52, an embryo out of the Weeran Pride family, and by Wattletop Franklin! Once again calving ease and excellent growth. Franklin has worked very well in the Weeran program. He is a trait leader for calving ease, growth, fertility and carcass traits. He sires moderate, but heavy framed docile cattle with super calving ease.
