GALAWATER ABERDEEN ANGUS HERD

 

 

 

 

 
 

SALE PEN

Galawater offered our first bulls for sale through the ring in 2005 and our hope is to continue to offer several bulls through the ring each year, in an attempt to raise our profile in the breed. However, we will continue to sell bulls at home by private treaty as soon as they come off test at 12 months of age. Our bulls are reared on a forage based diet, with their long term health and correctness, rather than huge weights for age our priority.  Performance recording is however very important to us, and all bulls have weights and ultrasound scanning results recorded with Breedplan. Bulls leave the farm having been Semen tested if the purchaser desires and insured.GALAWATER BENTLY C535

We also sell many breeding heifers, both pure and crossbred, privately and through the ring. Our own stock heifers calve at two years of age, with the majority of our sale heifers capable of doing the same.

BULLS FOR SALE

We usually have a selection of bulls for sale. At the moment these include a powerful and muscular set of bulls mainly sired by our stock bulls, Rawburn Echester and Summerhill Beethoven and Rawwburn Elysium but also include a powerhouse of a son of Ankonian Elixir. May 2010 will see the second crop of calves by our herd sires, Rawburn Elysium and Summerhill Beethoven as well as cracking set of ET calves by Ankonian Werner Wildfire and GH Coverboy come off of test and be offered for sale. Our bulls are raised on a high forage diet, are all fully weight recorded, ultrasound scanned and will leave the farm Semen Tested and insured if the purchaser desires. Listed below are a few that we think might be of interest to commercial and pedigree breeders alike. Just click on their names to see their full pedigrees and Breedplan figures.

Echester x Tui Blackmark

Panther is a big, powerful son of Echester and our foundation and now donor Poppy cow who, along with her daughter have bred so successfully for us. Indeed the family are perhaps the strongest, maternally, in the herd. This bull has extraordinary length and a great top. He ranks in the top 1% for Terminal Index as well as having a better than average Calving Ease and very high Milk figure. The complete package.

 

Elixir 100 x Impact

Fullback was one of our top performing bulls last year, posting one of the heaviest 400 day weights and the biggest eye muscle scans. His pedigree is full of top animals being a son of Elixir and out of the B162 Netherton cow. Fullback combines all this performance, muscle and power with a terrific milk value.

 

Echester x Air-Walk

Emperor can only be described as a muscle machine. Sired by the most proven bull in the breed for adding eye muscle and out of a cow who's progeny regularly top our scanning results, this comes as no surprise. His dam has consistently produced one of our most sellable bulls every year and Emperor is no exception.

 

Beethoven x Echester

Bertie is in our minds, a little special. He boasts one of the best set of ebvs we have ever had on a bull, combining plenty of growth, a massive muscle score, loads of milk and a great calving ease score. Sired by Beethoven who has been such a success on our heifers and young cows and out of one of our top young cows (pictured here), we used Bertie on our pure heifers this summer. We wait with anticipation for his first calves.

 

Beethoven x Echester

Basher is another Beethoven (pictured here)son from the same great family as Bertie, above, who we also used on heifers last summer. Again he combines a super carcase with a great hip structure and a bit of bone with great calving ease and milk. 

 

Elysium x Ebony

Born in mid-September, Excalibur has looked every bit the "Herd Bull" since the day he was born. Sired by the great Elysium and out of our donor cow Ermine D758, who is a maternal sister to our much admired Excalibur B381, we hope to show this young bull through the summer before being sold in the Autumn. His good looks are backed up with some impressive numbers, being our all time highest eye muscle scan bull.
