2017 Royal Adelaide Show
Our first show saw Ardno Oyster M124 shashed the Junior champion Heifer. Ardno Oyster M124, sired by Dai Maru Sensational and out of South Boorook Oyster H25 took out the prize. Judge Jake Phillips said that “The heifer is very attractive, with depth of body and enough carcase for her age – she has a bright future ahead of her.”
New Stud Sire
We have great pleasure in introducing Allendale Collingwood G20 into our Poll breeding program. We purchased him at the Bowmont dispersal sale. Collingwood’s birth weight is +4.4, +1.6 in calving ease, +23 in Milk and +2.8 Eye Muscle area. We are thrilled with this bull and look forward to his progeny in our Poll herd in the future.
Females purchased at Bowmont
Ardno are introducing 5 new females to our breeding program. We purchased 5 females at the Bowmont female dispersal sale in February 2017. The cows we purchased are Bowmont Maritana G067 [P], Bowmont Queen L001 [P], Bowmont Queen L106 [H], Bowmont Queen J054 [P] and Bowmont Queen H121 [H]. H121 had a son in the sale that sold for $7000 on the day.
We are very exited to see what these cows will do to our herd. We would like to congratulate the King family on the sale and for breeding magnificent Herefords over a large period of time.
