Assisting you to select the right heifer or cow bull for your program is our priority.  Our bulls are bred to perform in the paddock and to enable their progeny, in turn, to go on and perform to your expectations.

Our sale bulls are listed below with the list regularly updated to introduce each years fresh drafts of bulls.  There may also be a selection of young bulls not listed from time to time (our High Spa paddock bulls in use for example) so please feel free to contact us at any time to obtain details or to arrange an on farm inspection. Phone Brian or Wayne (03) 5348 2357

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.

IMPORTANT : HOW TO BEST UTILIZE BULL DETAILS LINKS BELOW ETC.

  • Regular visitors to our bulls pages will see that the system we had linking bull details is no longer as straight forward as it once was with the “old” ABRI/AA links.  This is because Angus Australia have a new system for online visitors to source animal and other information in a manner that will help protect the integrity of their data base.  (So our links will provide you with some details but not all) The ideal way to make the use of the links we post is to become a registered user of Angus Australia tech data, here is a link to assist:  Register for Angus tech
  • If you don’t want to register for Angus Tech the bull links we provide will enable you to source up to date EBV details and there is also a file of combined pedigrees you can peruse.

HIGH SPA P27 CJMP27    APR

P27’s figures display a commendable balance of all desirable.  He is beyond the realm of comfort for 1st calving heifers in our opinion, but he will be a fabulous cow bull

More information

HIGH SPA P28 CJMP28    APR

P28 is a very handy Reserve son that will be ideal to enhance the progeny of heifer herds.  He was in the top 10% of his large peer group weight ratio for age at weaning.

More information

P32 is a high growth cow bull with good fertility in his pedigree to suit most cow herds and end markets

More information

HIGH SPA P37 CJMP37    APR

More information

HIGH SPA P51 CJMP51    APR

P51 has an older full brother we thought so highly of we used him over our own cow herds.  Again the mating of High Spa E150 to Lawsons Invincible C402 has been a perfect match and produced a most functional cow bull.

More information

HIGH SPA P52 CJMP52    APR

A neat and valuable high milk, positive fat and good growth bull suitable for heifer herds.

More information

HIGH SPA P56 CJMP56    APR

P56 displays a beautifully balanced string of EBV’s so should go on and perform exceptionally over cows.

More information

HIGH SPA PAUL P59 CJMP59    HBR

Paul P59 will make a superb heifer bull with low birth weight (he had an actual very acceptable birth weight of 34kgs); good milk, positive fat with growth and EMA a bonus.

More information

Pete P65 is another special son of Trust with excellent growth and carcase, suitable for both heifers and cows.

More information

More information

HIGH SPA PROPELLOR P69 CJMP69    HBR

Propellor P69 is a bull with excellent milk and fertility, carcase and growth.  Definitely great for cow herds; it would be wise to consult with us before using a particular bull over heifers (as EBV’s are a good guide but may not necessarily tell the full story.)

More information

HIGH SPA P72 CJMP72    APR

The ever reliable Trust over a Landfall Everlast dam we admire, again produces a bull displaying excellent growth and carcase potential.  P72 is a possible multi-purpose use bull (mixed age herds)

More information

HIGH SPA P76 CJMP76    APR

It is always pleasing to see stand out sons of our High Spa sires featuring in each year’s drop of yearlings and P76 displays all the attributes desired for a bull to use over cows or mixed age female herds

More Information

HIGH SPA POWER P77 CJMP77    HBR

Appropriate to his name P77 displays the necessary power and grunt with good growth, fertility and carcase to be a positive influence over any cow herd.  With a birth weight just over breed average we would reserve him for cows.

More Information

HIGH SPA P80 CJMP80    APR

P80 is a most worthy son of Trust with excellent growth and milk, legacy also from his Quiet Lad dam F34 who has produced some outstanding males over the years.  Solid choice for your cow herds (again we would not mate him to 1st calving heifers)

More Information

HIGH SPA P87 CJMP87    APR

P87 will be a beaut heifer bull providing lower birth followed by good growth, handy milk, positive fat and marbling potential.

More Information

P90 will be a most effective bull to use over heifers so that they will calve down well and then their progeny will go on and to grow and perform to expectation.

More Information

HIGH SPA PRINCIPAL P91 CJMP91    HBR

P91 is a cows’ only prospect and he promises to be a splendid performer like his sire High Spa Johnson J94, a bull we thought so highly of we retained semen from him before sale.

More Information

HIGH SPA P94 CJMP94    APR

All indications are P94 will be a sturdy and reliable performer with good fertility.  His own raw birth weight was over 40kgs so although his ebv’s say he may be suitable over heifers we would recommend caution, he will be great over females who have had at least one calf.

More Information

HIGH SPA P106 CJM106    APR

Trust has featured prominently in our “P” drop of bulls and with good reason.  He has thrown us some reliable, first class males and females with tremendous capability to perform where it counts.  Use P106 happily over your heifers, cows or both.

More Information

More Information

P113 is not the biggest bull in the yearlings group but he makes a big impact with looks, grace and poise and with a very respectable string of ebv’s, and a proven pedigree he will be the ideal cow bull for someone not interested in extremes.  We would reserve him for cows.

More Information

HIGH SPA P115 CJMP115    APR

P115 will be a sound cow or (possibly) mixed age herd bull choice with a high retail beef yield %, decent EMA and growth and a meritorious pedigree from his sire M25, a Reserve son we used ourselves to good effect

More Information

HIGH SPA P133 CJMP133    APR

With a sire hailing from Reserve and a dam with Tibooburra pedigree we were not surprised to see P133 come in 3rd in his large peer group for weight ratio for age at weaning. He will be a cows’ only prospect and one to ensure their progeny display plenty of do-ability, growth and grunt.

More Information

HIGH SPA P135 CJMP135    APR

Another more than praiseworthy performer at weight ratio for age at weaning, P135 is a bull with an ebv string of figures that are pleasing to the eye and are obviously indicative of a worthy bull to enhance any herd.  All his dam’s male progeny over the years have been retained as bulls.

More Information

HIGH SPA P136 CJMP136    APR

A further great M18 son that has excelled at weaning weight legacy of his well blended pedigree.  A little less milk than the fellow above from the same sire so he will be fine in harsher climates – but at a 4.4 birth weight ebv we would join him only to cows that have had at least one calf.

More Information

HIGH SPA P141 CJMP141    APR

P141 has a high ranking in weight ratio for age at weaning and if you need to thump some growth into your herd don’t overlook him.  His growth is marvelous and everything else looks ideal as well.

More information

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.

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.

More information

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.

More information

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.
