FOUNDATION FEMALES

EULYN U29 OF THE MOSS

Eulyn was one of our first purchases when we acquired her at the Broadmeadows Dispersal. She and her bull calf were the High Selling Cow/Calf pair that day. She has proven to be a very good breeder with her son Galawater Edwin A258 retained for use in our commercial herd and light duties amongst the pedigrees. Her Air-Walk daughter Galawater Eulyn C680 is one of our favourite young cows and her 2005 and 2006 heifer calves, by Galawater Excalibur are real standouts and amonst our top performers. Eulyn consistently breeds calves with extra length, style and performance and has joined our flushing programme in 2006.

Her dam, Wedderlie Princess F10, is also the maternal grandam of the great brood cow, Wedderlie Poppy P21. Primrose has bred well, with her first son (Galawater Pegasus Z815) retained for use at home, and her first daughter Galawater Princess A200 turning into one of our most impressive homebred females.

BARBARA KIM OF AUCHTERFORFAR

Barbara Kim has definitely been one of our better purchases. Her first three calves were heifers, all of which have been retained. These daughters have also proven to be very good breeders, and as a result the “Barbara Kims” are now one of our top families. Barbara Kim is a daughter of the record priced Wiwa Creek North Star 20’90 and descends from the famous Barbaras from Ushaw. She excels in muscle depth, milk and fleshing ability. Her sons and grandsons have been easily sold, at up to 15,000gns and include her grandson, Galawater Bold King E925, our 2007 Supreme Champion at Perth bull sale and the bull that we exported to Switzerland in 2006.

EMILIA OF KEABOG

Another foundation female purchased at the Keabog dispersal, again full of Wedderlie breeding. Sired by the Samurai grandson, Elbarbar of Eastfield, Emilia heads our Emily family, which always have great conformation and fleshing ability. Emilia has three daughters retained in the herd and has a son for sale at Perth in 2006. A Jet Eric of Newcairnie sired grandson of Emilia born in 2005 is perhaps the best shaped calf we have ever bred.
