Ten AberdeenPlus bulls sired by Ardrossan Neron, as well as three embryo transfer bulls out of Ardrossan Isadora are being offered amongst a catalogue of 145 bulls at the Duff Angus sale in Oklahoma, USA on Saturday February 21, US time.
As Duff Ranch is one of the top 10 Angus producers in the US, these bulls will be purchased by commercial ranchers all over the US to moderate frame size of their Angus and also be used for ease of calving in their heifer herds.
This is a major step in having the Lowline breed accepted by commercial cattle producers.
This is the second year bulls sired by Ardrossan Lowline genetics have been sold by Duff Ranch. Last year they used Ardrossan Jamberoo.
The catalogue is available for viewing.
The Lardner Steer Trial Presentation Dinner was held on Friday, 27th February at Lardner Park in Warragul. Lowlines breeders attending were Joan Adams (Bembridge), Lynda Senger (Colombo Park) and Jeanette & Peter Stebbins (Ardrossan). Although not major prize winners, which were taken out by South Devon, Angus and Angus composite cattle, the Lowlines and Lowline cross cattle entered were not disgraced. Lowline and Lowline cross cattle took out 1st and 3rd in the Eating Quality section – a trait that we should all be proud of and promote.
A lot was learnt from entering this competition and, hopefully, other breeders will enter it in the future.
