High Spa has taken steps via the Pfizer Star program to ensure their bulls will not introduce reproductive diseases into other herds. This involves a series of vaccinations and a test to prove there is no persistent infection with Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus. Other required health monitoring is undertaken regularly as a matter of course.
“N” BULLS GROUP, FEB/MAR/APRIL 2017 BORN
HIGH SPA N24 CJMN24 APR
Ten Speed has clicked with N24’s dam H137 to produce a very handy bull we would recommend for cow herds – desirable growth and EMA are a big bonus. His Retail Beef Yield (RBY%) is in the top 2% of the breed
HIGH SPA N32 CJMN32 APR
N32 is a bull to reserve for established cow herds providing them with all needed to produce some serviceable, good growing progeny.
HIGH SPA N33 CJMN33 APR
Hoover Dam caught Brian and Theresa’s eye in the States in 2015 as a bull that still had plenty to offer and could hold his head high amidst modern genetics. N33 has sourced some excellent carcase, high growth and good fertility from his sire and dam. He can be considered for use over mixed age female herds, a terrific bull where high milk is not a problem.
HIGH SPA N35 CJMN35 APR
If you are seeking a solid bull to safely calve down 1st calving heifers look no further than N35. He has some positive fat and good milk figures followed with ideal, moderate growth, particularly commendable after coming from such a low base.
HIGH SPA N94 CJMN94 APR
N94 has a solid background pedigree; his sire is a bull we thought so highly of we retained semen of him before sale. N94 will serve established cow herds well providing them ideal growth and carcase for many end markets.
HIGH SPA NORMANDY N97 CJMN97 HBR
Normandy N97 will thump outstanding growth and carcase into the progeny of established cow herds – steer away from using him on maiden heifers. His EMA is right up there in the top percentages of Angus Australia’s percentile bands and his $Index values estimate his worth for his progeny end markets.
HIGH SPA N120 CJMN120 APR
For a bull with a moderate start (N120’s raw birth weight was a nice 35kgs) and with great potential for use over heifer herds N120 was also in the top 10 bulls, weight ratio for age at weaning. There will be no compromise in end growth or carcase by using N120 over heifers or cows.
HIGH SPA NEW AGE N132 CJMN132 HBR
With his Retail Beef Yield % right up there in the AA top breed percentiles N132 will breed some super, good growing calves to cows that have had more than one calf. (Not for your maiden heifers please) He hasn’t too much milk to trouble herds in harsher areas and he boasts a bonus of great EMA and carcase potential.
HIGH SPA N140 CJMN140 APR
What a fabulous heifer or mixed age herd bull N140 is from start to finish. He has a good negative gestation length EBV (estimated breeding value) too which will also assist in easier calving for heifers, and his growth is great, another bull that had a more modest start and ended up being in the top 10 males at weaning weight ratio for age.
HIGH SPA N141 CJMN141 APR
N141 is a big, exceptionally solid, high growth “cows’ bull only” with some lighter milk ideal for harsher climates. If you select him as “your” herd bull we can deliver him wherever in Victoria you are producing cattle. He is the 1st male to his dam H117 and she has delivered us a magnificent one.
HIGH SPA NELSON N169 CJMN169 HBR
For a young bull that was born in May 2017 to stand up and be counted alongside males that were born much earlier on in that year says a lot about him. He was also Number 10 in his large peer group at weight ratio for age at weaning. After producing 6 females his very attractive and fertile Sitz Upward dam has produced a fine bull that will do a grand job, he was a big boy at birth so apologize to your maiden heifers and keep him for the cows.
- HIGH SPA 2018 PADDOCK BULLS GROUP, “N” 2017 AUTUMN BORN
HIGH SPA N23 CJMN23 APR
N23 offers herds a thump of growth and some great EMA in a package that should benefit both heifer and cow herds
HIGH SPA N30 CJMN30 APR
N30 is an extremely neat heifer bull with low birth weight and negative gestation length with excellent growth and carcase benefit on top.
HIGH SPA N41 CJMN41 APR
It isn’t hard to see why N41 was right up there with the leaders in his weight ratio for age at weaning. He will be a super bull to thump great growth into cow herds (heifers in some areas may handle him OK as well but always consult with us before going down that track with a particular bull) N41’s raw birth weight was 38kgs.
HIGH SPA NEPEAN N87 CJMN87 HBR
N87 is a bull with exceptional potential and balance and possesses a powerful pedigree we admire. With a birth weight close to breed average and a raw BW of 39kgs we would prefer to use him over cows – and have done just that in 2018 we considered him so highly.
YEARLING “N” BULLS – 2017 SPRING BORN
HIGH SPA NEMESIS N176 CJMN176 HBR
N176’s dam G261 is from one of our best performing and admired female lines and she has jelled beautifully with Trust to produce an outstanding young bull that will be most valuable over mixed age herds
HIGH SPA N177 CJMN177 APR
We are delighted to see a bull from a lower birth weight sire High Spa Edward E3 (AA Sire Progeny Benchmarking Bull) rank 2nd in his peer group for weight ratio for age at 200 day weights. He will be a superb heifer bull choice and from a modest start still provide some good growth and carcase.
HIGH SPA NEWMAN N181 CJMN181 HBR
N181 provides a different and very likeable pedigree and is suited for heifers to provide their progeny with all desired and a safe start.
HIGH SPA N187 CJMN187 APR
N187 boasts a dam that has produced 3 great bulls to different sires and a super fertile daughter we are still using on farm. N187 is definitely a “cows only” prospect and with such a substantial pedigree from his dam combined with the ever reliable Trust he will go to your herd highly recommended from us. As you might expect he was high up there on the grid, weight ratio for age, at 200 days.
HIGH SPA NEWINGTON N198 CJMN198 HBR
N198 was our 1st ranked bull for weight ratio for age at 200 day weights so he is a desirable and sound performer. With a solid enough raw birth weight (and consequently a Birth Weight EBV above breed average) we suggest he is reserved for your cow herds to thump some great growth and carcase into their progeny
HIGH SPA N199 CJMN199 APR
N199 is from a pedigree we hugely approve of. His sire High Spa Johnson J94 is a home grown bull we have used over and over to enhance growth and carcase, style and temperament in our herds. He will be a splendid choice as a “cows only” bull
Inquiries on all the bulls above are welcomed.
At some times of the year our listed sale bulls may also be joining High Spa herds and therefore will be available for sale after the joining periods are completed.
