For the upcoming 2024 NBGen bull sale, we have introduced new performance sires from Australia and the USA.

Our bulls are bred through natural matings, artificial insemination and embryo transfer.

 

It’s always fascinating to observe their performance, evaluate their offspring, and witness their impact on our herd. We are very pleased with the progeny and thrilled to offer some of their first NBGen sons in our upcoming sale on August 6. In particular, GAR Hometown Hero, who will have the very first Australian born progeny for sale.

 

All NBGen sires emphasise our objective of calving ease, fast early growth and quality carcass attributes, leaving functional moderate stature sisters in the program to replicate the process in commercial conditions.

DOB: 12/09/2020

SIRE: G A R HOME TOWN

MS: G A R MOMENTUM

Hero is a Home Town son that offers more frame and growth than his sire while still offering breed-leading marbling. Hero’s individual scan data included a 101 IMF ratio and 111 EMA ratio against stiff competition. He comes from a proven cow family and adds significant growth, frame, carcass and days to calving. He sits in the top 1% for 200 day growth and is a phenotypic standout. Hero is in the top 20% for hair shedding, an important trait for many of our northern clients and his NBGen sons are showing the supreme carcass data we were hoping to add when using GAR genetics. We bred him to one of our favourite NBGen cows to build a bull that is safe for heifers, but still boasts the growth we know our client’s demand. The consistency of his progeny has been overwhelmingly satisfying. Results in the growth department have been outstanding under commercial conditions and we see our Hero daughters being very influential in our NBGen breeding program.

Backed by years of breeding diligence and industry experience, Home Town combines calving ease, performance and carcass quality in a moderate frame. He sits in the top 2% for EMA and top 5% for IMF. Home Town is a phenotypic standout – big-hipped, wide-based with an attractive herd bull presence.

G A R TRANSCENDENT

SIRE: G A R MOMENTUM

MS: G A R PROPHET

 

Transcendent is still one of the highest marbling bulls in the Angus breed. This will be the first year we offer Transcendent sons, with many more years to follow. He is still a bull we are using in our joining programs today and we hope you can see why with his group of auction bulls. His data set is very influential and complementary to so many of our cows. A sire leader in the IMF department, he certainly breeds plenty of shape and softness to his progeny. Transcendent sits in the top 20% for hair shedding, an important trait for many of our northern clients.

DOB: 18/09/2020

SIRE: G A R PHOENIX

MS: MATAURI REALITY 839

R851 shows those all-important desirable traits that made his dam our top donor cow. Slick coat, very docile temperament, nicely headed and great scrotal shape and size. 851 is a bull that has produced strong early maturing male progeny and has carried on his dam's power to female progeny for retainment.

ID: QLMR827

DOB: 13/08/2020

SIRE: G A R ASHLAND

MS: G A R SURE FIRE

Through the lens of a carcass enthusiast, he has ticked all the boxes. A frame that oozes a strong topline and fast early growth weaning at 380kg amongst a contemporary group that averaged 286kg on semi forest country. He topped the IMF scanning as a yearling and ran a close second on EMA. I used him over the mature cows after most were AI’d, and in the 21 days he was there he got 25 cows pregnant before he went into a collection centre to collect semen for our own use. 827 is a 3/4 brother to G A R Home Town. Plus, he has the addition of the strong Flower family dam line going back to two of the most influential sires in Reality and A241 who need no introduction.
