Tara Hills Farm Q152
Tara Hills Farm Q152 is a purebred bull calf born 21/08/2019. He is sired is the US fullblood bull Blue rock Michifuku FB3101. Q152’s dam is Tara Hills Farm N150, a purebred cow born in 2017.
N150 is sired by the Australian fullblood bull Ginjo Marblemax Hiranami B901 and out of our foundation cow H240. We have been very impressed by the Michifuku sons over B901 daughters results. Q152 was 33kg at birth and was 147kg on 21/12/2019 so on track for a 200 day weight of 215kg.
Given his early birthdate in August 2019, Q152 is a good choice for a bull to work as a yearling in 2020. He is available either with his dam N150, or at weaning as either a steer or bull, price $7.50 per kg liveweight at the time of sale.
Tara Hills Farm Q197
Tara Hills Farm Q197 is a purebred bull calf born 08/10/2019. He is sired by one of the US fullblood bulls Blue rock Michifuku FB3101 or Bar R Michifuku FB4226 (DNA parent verification pending).
Q197’s dam is Tara Hills Farm M194, a purebred cow born in 2016 (and our favourite cow). She is sired by the Australian fullblood bull Ginjo Marblemax Hiranami B901 and out of our foundation cow H223. Q197 was 33kg at birth but is showing a massive early development and weight gain – the best we have seen yet from one of our bull calves. He was 132kg on 31/12/2019 and is on track for a 200 day weight of 260kg.
Based on performance so far Q197 is our pick of the 2019 purebred bulls and is available either a steer or bull, price $7.50 per kg liveweight at time of sale.
