Bulls scanned 11 September by Lonnie Stone (thanks Lonnie). A preliminary Supplementary Sheet can be downloaded by clicking the link on this page.
A lot of big EMA's in the 150's and 140's as usual but most pleasing was that we hit our fat target. We were aiming to average 7-8mm P8 which we think gives us a well presented bull that is still able to get out and do his work when called upon and the boys landed right in the middle of that range. Well done!
There are some standout performers for fats and we notice that this year more of the bulls with the really big EMA's also have the extra fat which tells us that out breeding program is on the right track.
Also very pleasing is that the young bulls are able to combine good growth rates with good fat cover as they are actively growing. We consider this doing ability to be a direct result of our focus on female fertility and age of puberty.
Weights coming shortly. Semen testing and vet checks are complete.
