We’re looking forward to meeting up with clients and friends early in the new year at the 2017 Big Country Sale at Charters Towers. We’ll be presenting for sale three quality bulls from two very impressive sires…
We profile the sires in this article and highlight the traits we consistently see in their progeny. We believe this breeding background is essential to help you make wise purchasing decisions. As always, our breeding and matching decisions have been carefully thought out and relate closely to the 7 elite breeding attributes Rockley animals are known for.
JDH Sir Stratton Manso is an outstanding son of the legendary JDH Mr Elmo Manso and he excels in many areas such as length, width, natural muscle and conformation. Stratton also exhibits an extreme amount of bone and stature and is already passing all these traits on to his calves in both red and grey breeding programs. Stratton’s offspring are moderate, easy fleshing and correct, all possessing excellent temperaments.
We are very pleased that Stratton has the ability to breed light pigmented progeny when matched with red females as he clearly has the capability to produce animals that appeal to a wide range of breeders. We have another batch of Stratton calves on the ground at the moment, testament to our faith in this impressive sire. Our first Stratton sons sold extremely well, averaging $16,400.
Platinum is tremendously thickset, long, heavy boned, tidy in the sheath and structurally sound. His progeny are super quiet and the majority are polled, two traits that are very valuable to us. His sire comes from a great producing cow family, grandson of the great El Ja Baby Doll and his dam is a powerful polled cow that has some more exciting progeny on the horizon.
I inspected Platinum at a young age and was confident in being one of the first to use his semen. I recently viewed his latest batch of calves and they are certainly stamped with his quality. In 2016 a polled Three D Platinum heifer from NCC Brahmans sold for $28,000.
