Kerrah Bulls Excell in Progeny Test
Spring has finally arrived and calving finished for another year. Exciting news from the NZ beef and lamb progeny test Cohort 3 where Kerrah Captain progeny ranked 4/47 for ylg weight and 2/47 for 18mnth weight whilst 1/47 for EMA and 8/47 for Rib fat exactly the terminal sire we have been trying to breed, Waikite Zac who we used for several seasons ranked 1st for ylg weight and 3rd for 18mnth weight. And from the 5 th Cohort which has only had WW analysed Glenside Frontier who we purchased as a 2yr old ranked 1/37 Kerrah Destined ranked 2/37 and Kerrah Epic who has a stunning line up of yearlings this year ranked 3/37. Last week saw all the yearling bulls EMA and fat scanned and 400 day weight and scrotal circumference taken, to go with their 100k genomic information from their DNA to give us the best information possible to fast forward progress to ensure further results like those being achieved on the progeny test. A selection of bulls will be Semen tested on Monday and available for private sale.
Celebrating steak of Origin win
After being a finalist for the last 6 years, Kerrah finally took out the European and Overall Grand Champion title at the NZ steak of Origin competition held at Mystery Creek Hamilton. Amongst 300 entries from around the country, the Kerrah entry endured a lengthy process of being evaluated in a lab for tenderness and PH, then taken to the plate for taste and aroma testing. We believe the secret to winning was 3 S's "Science, stockmanship and Simmental."
