Rockley Sire Battery and Elite Donors

About the Genetic Program

Investing in Rockley Red Brahman genetics is a sound, smart investment that will permanently advance your profitability and productivity of your herd. Thanks to more than 65 years of successfully breeding elite red brahmans by three generations of stud breeders Rockley Red Brahman genetics have stood the test of time.

Rockley’s clients are both Stud Cattle Breeders and Commercial Beef Cattle Producers seeking to expand their herds with elite Red Brahman bulls and females. For decades Rockley has assessed their cattle against 7 key breeding attributes that describe truly elite cattle.

Rockley Red Brahmans provides a guarantee on all bulls and females sold. Our cattle are bred to excel in harsh Northern Australian conditions, performance tested, easily handled with the production of beef always at the front of mind.

Sire Power – We only invest in the best. Over the last decade Rockley has spent close to half a million dollars on leading red Brahman sires and these can be evidenced by looking at our current battery of leading Red Brahman Sires. Rockley strives for balance of high fertility, strong carcass traits and above average growth- all in a polled package.

Elite Donors – With a quality young female herd at our disposal, we can insist that Rockley donors adhere to our long-term breeding objectives. Our key focus is fertility pressure to help us identify our most productive breeders and to cull non-performers. Our emphasis on 7 elite breeding attributes and a continued attention on improved EBV accuracies and polled genetics remain strong.

ROCKLEY LP ETHERIDGE (IVF) (P)

09/03/2016. Polled
Naturally mated and IVF sire.
Etheridge is a light pigmented, polled bull that we made the vitality important decision to retain in 2017. A prepotent son of the proven sire Doonside Mr C Eagle out of one of our most popular donors, Rockley Miss Datababe 17/14. A full brother to Etheridge sold at the Big Country Sale this year for $50,000.
BREEDPLAN figures for Etheridge indicate he is a high growth bull , in the top 10% for 200, 400, 600-day growth, mature cow weight, carcase weight and retail beef yield. He’s in the top 20% for the Jap Ox and Live Export Indexes and in the top 30% for Flight Time.
We have confidently utilised Etheridge in our IVF programs and eagerly await the results. He has been entered in the Repronomics program. We look forward to the assessment of his progeny and improved accuracy of his EBV’s.
We have two polled full sisters to Etheridge who are both outstanding, one of which is also light pigmented. Etheridge progeny include one light pigmented (also known as ‘pink nosed’) who is out of a black nosed cow. We are confident Etheridge would breed a light pigmented progeny when crossed with light pigmented females. His progeny to date look impressive and he is breeding true to his type.
We believe an opportunity presents itself for other breeders from Droughtmaster, Santa etc. to capitalise on utilising more Brahman in their herd given the recent dry times.
Etheridge weighed in at 966kg on the 14/05/2019 when this photo was taken, after light grain supplementation.
