GK Red 38 Special S1

ID: GK S01

S1 is a growthy, long bodied, slick coated bull. Being a very moderate birthweight calf out of a two year old first calver, S1 would be highly suitable for use over maiden heifers but would still have enough size and power to use over cows as well. He is good footed bull who is in the top 20% of the breed for 400 day weight, top 30% for birth weight and top 5% for scrotal circumference.

S1 is parent verified and SNP profiled. He is dual registered in the herdbook of both The Red Angus and Angus Societies of Australia.

Red Cockburn Assassin 624D

CANM1942328

Assassin’s progeny have been met with high demand, with sons selling to $19,000 in Australia in Power of Red VII last year. He consistently sires easy born calves with shorter gestation length. His progeny display amazing temperaments, grow rapidly and exhibit plenty of muscle shape and scrotal development. His first daughters exhibit superb udder quality and are gorgeous young cows with loads of capacity.

Assassin is in the top 1% of the breed for 400 day weight on Group Breedplan. He is also in the top 5% for scrotal circumference and carcass weight, the top 10% for 200 day weight and top 15% for milk. He clicks brilliantly over Mulberry females and is sure to become a trait leader in the next couple of months going on these figures.

This will be the last time GK offers packages in Assassin as we have virtually no stock left in storage.
