Woonallee's 1st Enews

19 December 2011


Welcome to Woonallee's 1st E-news

Welcome to our 1st e-news. The e-news is designed to keep everyone up to date with what is happening at Woonallee and the latest information for our 5th Elite production sale, which is being held on the 9th of February, 2012. We will be featuring a select animal on every enews and will give you a comprehensive evaluation on its pedigree, phenotype and EBV data.

It only seems right that in our first enews we feature the most potent sire to ever walk here at Woonallee. Woonallee BHR Tornado is an awesome looking polled bull with a true sire’s outlook. His mobility, extreme length and strong carcase make him a unique package. His first group of heifers set the 2011 sale on fire and averaged $7500. His first offering of bulls are truly amazing and have been at the top of their groups from an early age, and will feature prominently in the 2012 sale. When assessing his structure, predictability and the fact he is polled there is not much more we can say. Have a look at his EBV figures, below average for birth combined with strong growth make him a true curve bender, and this combined with his strong carcase data and positive fat, he truly is an amazing bull.

We were not going to sell any Tornado semen in 2012 because we are so excited about what he is doing here at Woonallee, however the 40th anniversary celebrations got the better of us and we have decided to offer 10 straws at lot 79. Don’t miss out because there will not be any more for 2012.
