July eNews

4 August 2012



Welcome to the July Edition of the Woonallee eNews

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the past year and with 105 bulls sold for this period it has proved to be our biggest yet.

We must now look to the future and have started drafting the bulls for the 2013 sale, for private selection and also for our own commercial herd. This draft of bulls is proving to be the best yet with high quality, young sires displaying the “Woonallee stamp” of good muscling, extra length and depth, softness and sound structure.

The 2013 sale group is made up of 60 outstanding traditional sires, with over 25 of these being polled, this draft of bulls are truly exciting. Featuring in this draft will be some outstanding stud sire prospects including Woonallee Goldrush (P), a polled son of Tornado out of our very best African import cow Woonallee Vasti B117. This young sire is undoubtedly the most powerful stud sire we have ever offered for sale, he is something else. Also featuring is Woonallee Galcier (P), another polled son of Tornado with extra length, thickness and style. He is sure to turn heads on sale day with his dark cherry red slick coat and large goggles. Woonallee Gallant (P) will also be a feature lot and when looking for a pedigree of elite seed stock production here it is. Sired by Tornado and out of the legendary T11 cow, he will be a must have sale day. For more information on any of these traditional sires please feel free to contact me on 0428 475 066 or tbaker@bakergroup.com.au

Also to feature in this draft will be the first of the Black and Red Simmentals from the Lewis Farms herd in Canada. These bull calves are truly amazing and exhibit calving ease, explosive early growth, strong carcase traits with softness, style and wonderful docility. The wait is over for those who are looking for new outcross genetics with the X factor needed in an elite herd sire. The sires of these outstanding young prospects include TNT Tanker, Wheatland Bull 680S, LFE Black Lakota, WFL Fully Charged and LFE BISS Black Advance.

Congratulations to all of the young cattle enthusiasts who exhibited Woonallee heifers at the SA Junior heifer expo. The Woonallee heifers performed extremely well with the 7 heifers winning 4 classes, two seconds both to Woonallee heifers which won their classes and one third. A great result and a credit to all of the people who were involved.

And for the 40th Anniversary Simmental sale in Wodonga we have selected one of our very best heifers. Polled, exclusive and outcross genetics from the heart of our herd, she is special! Stay tuned for more information and photos. If you require any further information please feel free to contact me.
