STONEY POINT PERFORMANCE ANGUS NEWSLETTER October 2017
The Billabong at our Naracoorte Sales Complex
Meating the Market The ultimate aim for cattle breeding is to produce more quality meat. We pride ourselves on the thick muscled nature of our bulls. They are standouts in this regard and many processors have commented on this very important aspect of our cattle breeding program. However, you have to have the structure to support this trait and we do not compromise here.

GUESS THE WEIGHT At our Naracoorte field day each year we conduct a “GUESS THE WEIGHT OF A SELECTED BULL” competition. The prize is an imperial (6 litres or 8 bottles equivalent) of premium red wine. In 2016 the wine was a GSM (Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro) representing the Great Stoney Point Mothers. The winner was Skeet Ashby and the next closest above and below winning just a bottle was Di Ashby and Geoff Ballantyne. In 2017 it was a Barossa Valley Shiraz representing our Best Value Sires. The winner this year was Ty Smith and the next closest being Brendan Ross and Tim Goode. We have already laid down the 2018 prize wine being a Coonawarra Cab Sav representing the Completely Competent Sires we will be putting forward for our sale at Naracoorte on 12th February 2018, enjoy a steak and have a guess or make a highly skilled assessment.
SHE’S A LITTLE BEAUTY One of our donor cows G257 (an Impression Daughter) gave 32 embryos in a flush to our newly imported sire Identity. We had 20 of these embryos transferred last spring at Calfco Holbrook and obtained 19 Pregnancies (95%) would you believe! Some real fertility there. Impression has a big reputation as a cow bull in the USA as well as for thickness. This lead us to try out one of his sons, Innovation, a really thick bull and yes, 27 embryos from K242 and 15 from K552. So if you are looking for thick fertile bulls, there are some on the way and it certainly looks like the I’s have it!
FEEDLOT PERFORMANCE— Again above average
LIBBY CREEK RE-ELECTED PRESIDENT
Stoney Point Blood Steers continue to excel in the feedlot achieving growth rates in excess of 2.5Kg per day. They just seem to perform, no issues with structure and disease. As clients you should have great confidence in our breeding direction.
Libby Creek was re-elected President of the Australian Angus Society at the recent AGM held in Ballarat. The Angus Society has had an outstanding year and the breed grows from strength to strength in all aspects of membership, registrations and most importantly price received for Angus cattle.
HEARTBREAK FOR OUR PRINCIPAL Our Principal Perry Gunner was a part owner of Heartbreak City the near winner of last years Melbourne Cup and a great chance again. Unfortunately he broke a leg in training and had to be euthanased but Perry has a share in 2 other likely prospects for the 2017 cup in Red Cardinal and Tiberian. It is a long way to the first Tuesday in November but the hope is for one better. Picture on right shows Heartbreak City (in Yellow) pipped on the line on the 2016 Melbourne Cup.
L HERD BACK UP BULL DESCRIPTIONS
The hardest decision each year is to select our backup bulls from such a stellar line up. Given about 1/3 of bulls are born to our back up bulls, the selection is critical to the genetics we offer our clients. Whilst we focus on phenotypes and EBV’s, we do select the occasional outlier to give a bigger spread of choices e.g. Muscling is a key trait improver fort he Angus breed which led to the selection of L46 (Looker). Here is our L Prefix Line-up. Stoney Point Lovis SYAL178 AI
