welcome Welcome to our home property Coolaroo, for our first on-property Raven bull sale to be held Thursday, 23rd of February 2017. After three successful sales at Naracoorte, we have decided to bring our sale home. It’s with great pleasure that we offer 30 select bulls that not only deliver tremendous growth performance and carcase, but also bring desirable maternal traits such as calving ease, milk, scrotal circumference (fertility) and positive fat to breed robust, resilient replacement females. The gains made through maternal heterosis improve cow herd efficiency and accumulate directly to added profit to the business. The Raven program endeavours to be at the forefront when it comes to crossbreeding,

offering sire options for producers aiming to incorporate the benefits of cross-breeding within their beef production system. The Raven catalogue includes both Purebred bulls as well as the Lim-Flex (Limousin X Angus) bull options, providing producer’s choice for the percentage Limousin appropriate for target markets while still making a gain through crossbreeding. We also provide DNA results for polled, coat colour and muscle meaning you can control the outcome of your calf crop (e.g. homozygous black bull will only produce black calves) The Raven bulls solid phenotype, is backed up by sound data with the herd being only one of two in Australia (only stud in S.A) to have a 5 Star rating for ‘Completeness of Performance’ in data

recording. This provides accurate data to assist beef producers in their bull selection. For more information on the Raven sale bulls or to discuss your bull needs don’t hesitate to contact us.

RAVEN 100 (Purebred Limousin)

RAVEN 50 & RAVEN 75 (Lim-Flex = Limousin x Angus)

Raven specialises in producing high performing, polled, purebred Limousin, a configuration that is well suited to current market specifications and with the added advantage of Limousin’s high growth rate, muscling and meat yield.

A Lim-Flex is a registered Limousin/Angus cross, combining the best of the two breeds. When stabilised at 25% to 75% the resulting Lim-Flex animal maintains the maternal traits, do-ability and marbling characteristics of the Angus breed, whilst maximising the yield, growth and muscle that is unique to Limousin. This hybrid vigour has proven very successful for British-bred (such as Angus) herds looking to add performance and increase weight gains, whilst still maintaining marketability.

The Raven herd delivers these profitable market attributes with a focus on breeding structurally sound, docile cattle that have an ability to finish on pasture.

As a reference in this catalogue the number identifies what percentage of Limousin makes up the individual bull e.g. Lim-Flex 50 = 50% Limousin with the remaining 50% being black Angus.

THE RAVEN LIM-FLEX PROGRAM Built on a solid foundation of quality select Angus registered females that have come from the heart of the “Bull Oak Well” herd. These Angus females have been infused with breed leading Limousin genetics to produce a Lim-Flex. Raven black Lim-Flex bulls offer strategic breeding options for producers looking to increase efficiency and productivity of their breeding herd. Example: When using a Lim-Flex50 (50/50 Limousin/Angus) bull over Angus or black cows producers receive the benefits from the 25% influence of Limousin in the progeny, without losing traditional (Angus) markets or replacement females.

WHY RAVEN LIMOUSIN BULLS ARE “TRACE MINERAL FORTIFIED” PRIOR TO THIS BREEDING SEASON? The use of a well-balanced mineral and vitamin supplement to meet the bull’s requirements is the main management consideration. While proper levels of all minerals are important to bull health and production, the four key minerals that have a direct effect on bull fertility are zinc, copper, manganese and selenium. An adequate mineral supply is also important for bone soundness and mobility. Zinc, copper and manganese are needed for skeletal development and maintenance, as well as hoof integrity. A bull suffering from lameness or joint problems will breed to fewer cows.

The overall conditioning period, using higher levels of trace minerals should be aimed at the development of yearling bulls and 60-90 days before initiation of the breeding season, which allows for the turnover of sperm that may have been affected by any transient mineral deficiencies.

Hills Farm Supplies has the expertise to work closely with Raven Limousin & Lim-Flex, ensuring their bulls are delivered in the best possible shape to serve your herd. Anthony Pearce Ruminant Nutritionist for HILLS FARM SUPPLIES 0467 600 061

TECHNICAL SUPPORT Please ask the Raven team or the agents for assistance with the use of Estimated Breeding Values (EBV’s) seen in this catalogue. The team can help you select the traits most important to your breeding objective and target markets. To assist with bull selection we have highlighted the individual bull traits that feature in the Top 10% and 20% of the Limousin breed. EXAMPLE: 200 Day Wt. Bull selection reference 24

POLL/HORN STATUS Homozygous Polled Homozygous means the two genes are similar. Progeny will be polled

COAT COLOUR STATUS Homozygous Black Homozygous means the two genes are similar. Progeny will be black

Heterozygous Polled - Heterozygous means the two genes are not similar. Progeny could be polled or horned depending on the polled status of the cow joining.

Heterozygous Black - Heterozygous means the two genes are not similar. Progeny could be black or red depending on the coat DNA status of the cow joining i.e. a homozygous Black Angus herd will produce black calves

Homozygous Horned - The animal is horned and will breed predominantly horned progeny unless joined to homozygous polled cows i.e. Angus cows. Scurred - Unrelated to the horn gene, a scurr is a small horn like growth that isn’t attached to the scull. Scurrs are sex influenced and often only demonstrated in uncastrated males.

Red - Red progeny are expected, depending on the cow herd. F94L MUSCLE GENE AA = 2 copies of the F94L allele, ensuring at least 1 copy is pasted on to British X progeny. AC = 1 copy of the F94L allele. British X progeny may express 1 or no copies of the gene.

Raven’s Homozygous Black bulls have ensured we get 100% black calves out of our Red Angus cows. In addition the bulls have performed well with great conception rates and the calves have added depth and softness. Although not our original goal, we have been so impressed with the traits shown, we decided to keep the best of the cross-bred heifers to add to our breeding herd. Tim & Kate Buck Parndana, Kangaroo Island

My client’s best calves come out of Raven bulls. The increase in weight for age, muscling and softness is notable. Bryan Biddle Territory Sales Manager Elders Coonalpyn
