Hardigreen Park had an active time at the 2013 spring sales as we prepared for the forthcoming breeding seasons. The Stud was after sires to follow on from its successful sires and share the load with Gralyn Defender and Dangarfield Torrent, both of which bulls are providing excellent progeny.
Two poll bulls were purchased at the Benelkay- Fishington Sale, Benelkay Grunt (P) and Benelkay Genset (P). Both these bulls had good character and muscling and sound EBV figures and are sons of Bullamakinka Dreamtime (P). They were sound in the sheath and had adequate testicle development, which all showed up with very high percentages of females in calf.
Other purchases were the much admired Drensmaine Apex (P) by Strathmore Yogi (P), who weighed in at 898 kgs and wit an EMA of 140 and high morthology. He was the top priced bull at Blackall at $22,000. At the Santa Central Sale, the Stud outlaid $30,000 for Wave Hill Gunsmoke (AI) (P). This bull is a son of Canowindra Snowden (PS) and a real carcass sire.
We look forward to presenting the sons of a number of these bulls at future sales.
