Sire power at Weeran

Alec Moore, Principal of Weeran Angus, said “our team are very excited with the new sires introduced into our program, resulting in an outstanding line up of sale bulls to be offered on 26th February @ 1pm. They are displaying exceptional type, deep bodied, heavily muscled, structurally correct cattle with excellent temperament”. 80 bulls will go through the ring, with a mix of 18 month and 2-year-old bulls. Our quest for moderate framed, high quality carcase cattle with exemplary temperament is well known, and this line up of sale bulls is no exception.

17 sons will be offered by Weeran Hooper H20, with some of the best calving ease, growth and carcase paperwork we have ever produced. “ Dare I say it, Hooper is a fantastic son of TeMania Africa” said Alec! Unprecedented birth to final, outstanding milk in the top 1% for the breed, extraordinary scrotal also in the top 1%, along with a Heavy Grass Index in the top 3%. This bull is as thick as a brick, and sound as a bell and is the best Africa son I have ever seen. His temperament is perfect & he is breeding very well. He has 234 progeny on the ground.

One of our new sires to be introduced is Ardcarnie F96, with 12 sons in the sale. He is a graduate of the Angus Society Benchmarking Trial Cohort 3, and displays unparalleled calving ease and birthweight numbers with an exceptional growth curve. His EMA is in the top 19% of the breed with his retail beef yield in the top 4% of the breed. He has been used in 22 herds across the country and has 340 progeny analysed.

Our second new sire this year with 10 sons in the sale, is Wattletop Franklin G188. The Matron Maker. The best bull to come out of the Wattletop Angus stud. The most complete bull from Cohort 4 in the Angus sire benchmarking trial being a trait leader for calving ease, growth, fertility and carcass traits. His mother E295 topped the Stage 1 Wattletop dispersal sale for $38,000 to Sprys Angus. His Daughter, J464 equal topped the sale for $38,000 to Bannaby Angus. His 10-year-old Grand Dam C136 sold for $16,000 to KO and Bannaby Angus. And had a total of 16 Daughters averaging $14,187 truly highlighting the matron maker in this bull. A terrific result in a strong sale where all 259 females sold to average $8,494. He sires moderate, but heavy framed docile cattle with super calving ease. He has 746 progeny across 47 herds.
The exciting success story of Weeran Joel J13 continues, with 7 sons to be sold. Joel is now 6 years old and still kicking goals! He is the full package for performance which has been validated with his outstanding results in the Angus Society benchmarking trial, Cohort 6. With a group of 41 sires registered, Joel is in the leading pack of all traits recorded. He is number one in the cohort for Carcase Weight, 4th for 600day weight, 6th for 200day weight and 8th for EMA. Every time we download his figures, they just keep improving! A very exciting home bred sire! The combination of calving ease, low birth, large scrotal & carcase quality has made him a very easy bull to use. He adds value to every mating you use him on! He has 354 progeny across 10 herds.

This is the second year of Ascot Hallmark sons in our sale. Ascot Hallmark is an outstanding sire by TeMania Emperor E343 out of a Millah Murrah D108 daughter. He is a power bull with top 1% growth for 200, 400 and 600 day weight, with positive fat and good IMF. Something everyone loves about this sire is his ability to consistently throw incredibly long, easy fleshing, well-muscled progeny; adding exceptional performance over the scales. The top price bull of $30,000 in the 2018 autumn sale, Weeran Moe M96, was by Ascot Hallmark. We have four very impressive sons in this sale.
Millah Murrah Kingdom K35 needs no introduction as the $150,000 Australian record priced Angus bull purchased by a syndicate including Witherswood Angus, Gilmandyke Angus, Ascot Angus and ABS Australia. Breeders who have used Kingdom appreciate the excellent impact he is having, breeding almighty power, adding huge capacity, wonderful bone and structure and an easy keeping temperament you want in your herd. His daughters are receiving great praise for their capacity and structure with excellent udders and the great job they are doing on their calves. Wherever they have been offered, with their sire’s “paper shortcomings” moderated, Kingdom’s sons sell at or near the top of the offering said Ross Thompson of Millah Murrah. At the 2018 Millah Murrah sale, a Kingdom son broke the oldest record in the breed, when M192 sold for $34,000 to break the $27,000 mark set for an APR bull in 1991. We will be offering four sons in the sale.

Weeran Lachlan L58, a son of home bred sire Weeran Hooper, was purchased by Paul and Jenny Lewis and has bred and grown out very well. He is a double cross of TeMania Africa which has worked really well. Excellent calving ease and good birth to final, with exceptional scrotal……should have nuts on him like canon balls! He is in the top 8% of the breed for IMF. You can breed elite eating quality beef efficiently with a sire like this! 5 sons will be selling this autumn.

Wattletop Kiwi was purchased as a yearling at the 2016 Wattletop sale with a semen share sold to Twin Oaks NZ. He was purchased to make use of his outstanding growth curve & calving ease. His outstanding feet & leg structure has been a bonus & his growth has continued to climb. He is producing cattle of moderate frame & very correctly made types. 203 progeny have been analysed across two herds. Three sons on offer.

Millah Murrah Docklands J193 was the $17,000 high selling yearling to Monterey Angus in 2014. From the same dam as Hallmark, Millah Murrah Brenda F123, the 690-kilogram yearling, by Carabar Docklands D62 has grown into a massive volume sire producing ultra-sleek coated, beautifully laid shouldered, amply fleshing, good framed cattle. He was described by Monterey Angus as a “special bull with no holes in his structure complimented by sensational figures”. Our two Docklands sons are stand outs.

The first son by Millah Murrah Klooney K42 will be offered this autumn. Klooney sold for $80,000 at Millah Murrah in 2015. He is the first calf of Prue H4, who many consider to be the best Emperor daughter to surface. Klooney is receiving rave comments from breeders across the country for his ability to transmit exceptional structure and phenotypic excellence to his offspring. In Spring 2017, the first nine Klooney sons sold at Millah Murrah, to a $50,000 industry record yearling price and an average exceeding $20,000. In 2018, wherever Klooney bulls have sold, they have either topped the sale, or been among the high selling sire groups. 1,066 progeny have been analysed across 66 herds.
