Current Sires

DANGARFIELD UNIVERSE (PS)

SIRE: DANGARFIELD QUARTERBACK (P) 271596
DAM:  DANGARFIELD 6496 278298
DOB: 02.09.2010

Dangarfield Universe (PS) was joined by us for the 2012-2013 season, before we sold him at our 2013 Sale for $40 000 to Riverslea Group.  After seeing his progeny born, we were able to negotiate and secure a half share back in the bull, something we are very thankful to the Martin Family for. 

In 2015 we retained 1 son of Universe (PS) and sold 12 at our auction. They averaged $8 200, and topped at $26 500 for Dangarfield X100 selling to Jaletto Pty Ltd - to set an Australian Herd Bull Record. 

With Riverslea Group having him for his second year, we used Universe (PS) in our ET Programs, and the result is 1 son in this sale.  The daughters from this same flush are shaping up to be some exciting young breeders for us.

To-date Universe (PS) has sired an impressive line of daughters delivering high pregnancy and classification rates for both the Dangarfield and Riverslea Group herds. 

Universe’s (PS) dam, Dangarfield 6496, has a strong calving record of 9 progeny to date, with a 359 day calving interval and is PTIC this year.   

Over the last couple of years, especially through our ET programs, it has become obvious that crossing Dangarfield Quarterback (P) over Warrillee Vernon daughters (same pedigree as Universe (PS)) is a consistently good cross.

Semen of Universe (PS) has been exported to New Zealand and Paraguay.

Semen packages are available in Dangarfield Universe (PS).


DANGARFIELD QUARTERBACK (P)

SIRE: DANGARFIELD JACK JUNIOR (P) 222726
DAM: DANGARFIELD 0131 226418
DOB: 14.11.06

Quarterback (P) is a stand out sire in our herd when you look back over what he has achieved.  He has grossed over $600,000 in 5 years of progeny sales, to average $9,900 with a top of $40,000 for Dangarfield Universe (PS) to Riverslea Group.  Five sons have also been retained for in-herd use.

In 2015, we also witnessed the first grandsons of Quarterback sell well for the respective studs who have purchased his sons so far.

Semen of Quarterback (P) has been sold into 3 states within Australia, and exported to Paraguay, South Africa, Zambia and Namibia.

The constitution of Quarterback is something that has to be seen to be believed.  People who have inspected him here at home have trouble believing that he is not on feed.  He holds his condition all year round.  His amazing constitution and doing ability off grass is a trait he passes on strongly and we are keen to get this trait through our herd as much as possible for our pasture finishing operation.

Quarterback (P) sustained a hip injury in 2013 and we did try him with some cows, and the sons in this sale team are the result of that natural joining.  However, it became clear during the last joining that he cannot handle a paddock of cows for natural service. 

Of course, we have also been using him through AI in our ET programs, and the first of these are also catalogued. 

Semen packages are available in Dangarfield Quarterback (P).


DANGARFIELD SECOND-TO-NONE

SIRE: DUNLOP HILLBILLY 263973
DAM: DANGARFIELD 1460 238453
DOB: 13.10.08

This sire had some impressive data backing him when we decided to retain him from our 2010 sale draft.  At 23 months of age he weighed 804kg with a daily life gain of 1.10kg, scanned 120 for eye muscle and measured 42 cm scrotal circumference.  This raw data was after only 55 days of light sale preparation.

Dangarfield Second-To-None has an impressive pedigree with his dam, Dangarfield 1460.  She is still active in the herd at 13 years of age with 11 calves recorded to date and a 376 day calving interval.  1460 has produced 2 daughters that have gone into the stud, 3 of her sons went to auction and 1 son was sold privately.  Dangarfield 1460 is by one of the greatest sires that we have seen in our herd - Capricorn Glengarry. Glengarry did some amazing things for us and left many great daughters producing top shelf progeny in our herd.

Dangarfield Second-To-None sustained a leg injury early in life, but this has not affected his desire to get calves!  When joined in one of our larger breeder paddocks he could be found in any corner on any day, he really covered some country.

Second-To-None was leased for a half season in 2010 to Scott & Wendy Ferguson, and they sold a son of his in 2013 for $16,000 at Santa Central.

To date, Second-To-None has sold 10 sons @ auction to average $5,100 and grossing $51,000.

Semen of Second-To-None has been exported to South Africa, Namibia and New Zealand.


DANGARFIELD SHAMROCK (AI)

SIRE: DANGARFIELD IMPROVEMENT 215077
DAM: DANGARFIELD 8020 211117 
DOB: 21.08.08

When putting together our 2010 sale team, we spent plenty of time wondering whether or not we should offer Shamrock (AI) for sale.  At 25 months he weighed 814kg with a DLG of 1.04kg off pasture, he scanned up at 112 EMA and measured 40cm for scrotal.  Thankfully when he sold for $12,000 to Cree Stud in 2010, we were lucky enough to negotiate and purchase a half share back in the bull.

Shamrock had the real style, type of carcass and good nature that we have come to expect from the Dangarfield Improvement line.  You only have to look through his 13 sons in this auction team to realise that he has reproduced himself extremely well with a strong, consistent line up on offer.

His daughters are even more impressive! From our group of replacement heifers this year the several people who have seen that draft always comment on them for they style and eye catching qualities. 

Shamrock’s progeny classification rate is also very high with approximately 75% of his offspring branded S in 2104.

Unfortunately this is the only offering of Shamrock’s that we will have for sale as he was injured just before he finished his season with us.


DANGARFIELD Summit (p)

SIRE: DUNLOP HIMALAYA 263958
DAM: DANGARFIELD 4643 (P) 261366 
DOB: 08.09.08

 


DANGARFIELD TAROOM

SIRE: SUJO HARMONY 268214
DAM: DANGARFIELD 4708 AP4.252919
DOB: 01.09.2009

This sire really catches your eye when you see him.  He is full of meat on one of those bodies that just has that extra length.  Taroom has a great nature and has produced a strong consistent line that all have his stamp on them. 

His daughters returned a 99% pregnancy test rate this year from a yearling joining and we also feel they have alot to offer our herd into the future.

At his first auction Taroom's sold 7 sons to average $9,214 and top @ $20,000.

DANGARFIELD TORRENT T011

SIRE: DANGARFIELD QUARTERBACK (P) 271596
DAM: DANGARFIELD 1501 235229
DOB: 24.07.09

Sold to Hardigreen Park for $37,500 in 2011.  Torrent’s dam produced 11 calves with a 357 day calving interval, with one daughter still in the stud after producing seven calves herself.


DANGARFIELD TORNADO

SIRE: DANGARFIELD QUARTERBACK (P) 271596
DAM: DANGARFIELD 2710 261328
DOB: 13.11.09

Tornado was retained from the first crop of  Quarterback (P) progeny.  His dam was a great looking cow with a strong track record, she had 7 calves with a 370 day interval.  All 4 of her sons classified with 3 going to auction to average $8 000, and 1 daughter going into the stud.

Tornado is an impressive individual, being slick and dark coated with plenty of loose skin, a perfect sheath and structure.  We are impressed by how Tornado has reproduced consistently within his progeny.   His daughters are now among some of our best young cows; with style, character, and fertility all in the one package.  We are confident they will make a large contribution to our herd in the future. 

Tornado strides around his paddock with ease, and it is a pleasure to watch him cover the country.  He won many championships in his 2 years on the show circuit, including Beef Week 2012 and the 8th Santa Gertrudis World Congress held in Brisbane in 2012.

Semen from Tornado has been exported to South Africa, Namibia and New Zealand.

To date 13 sons have sold at auction to average just over $6 000 and gross $90 100.

 

 


DANGARFIELD TYPHOON (PS)(AI)

SIRE: DANGARFIELD QUARTERBACK (P) 271596
DAM: DANGARFIELD 0304 AP4.226374
DOB: 06.10.09

Sold to Ian Mitchell & Co. for $28,000 in 2011.  His dam, 0304, produced 9 calves with a 359 day calving interval.  One daughter went into the stud and 3 of her sons have sold at auction.


DANGARFIELD VALLIANT (P)

DANGARFIELD VALLIANT (P)

**FIRST RELEASE SIRE 2016 **

SIRE: DANGARFIELD QUARTERBACK (P)  DAM: DANGARFIELD 1429
DOB: 00.00.00

 It was a big call to put Valliant (P) on the market but the decision  was made to help mark our 25th Anniversary Sale in 2013.  He sold for $23 000 to Yulgilbar and we have had positive feedback on his progeny.

We collected semen before Valliant (P) was sold  and we used him straight away through our ET Programs - the results are catalogued. 

Valliant’s (P) dam, Dangarfield 1429 was a great old cow and she was only just recently sold.  She produced 13 natural calves with a 368 day calving interval; 5 sons averaged $9 000 at auction, another was sold privately, and 3 daughters went into the stud. 

Valliant (P) has produced the extra doing ability that we have come to expect from his pedigree.

 


DANGARFIELD VEGAS

DANGARFIELD VEGAS

SIRE: HARDIGREEN PARK LEGEND
DAM: DANGARFIELD 9097
DOB: 00.00.00

Vegas was retained to continue on some strong bloodlines in his pedigree.  By Hardigreen Park Legend, who produced big performing, fast finishing progeny suitable for pasture finishing. 

Out of a highly fertile Dangarfield Becon daughter, Dangarfield 9097 who had produced 12 progeny with a 360 day calving interval.  Her sons averaged just under $7 000 and 3 of her daughters went into the stud herd.

We are very impressed with the Vegas progeny with consistency across the entire line.  His first daughters have also returned a strong preg test result this year.

We made the foolish mistake of selling Vegas privately after his first joining!  We have now purchased semen back in the bull and will be using him in our ET programs.

 

 


GLENN OAKS COOPER (PS)

SIRE: YARRAWONGA OBERG (P) 242922
DAM: YARRAWONGA NELLY (P) 225421
DOB: 18.04.07

Purchased privately for $25,000 after he won his strong class at the 2008 Ekka.  I noticed the consistency of the Oberg progeny a couple of years before this and decided Cooper (PS) had enough quality about him to stick my neck out and buy him.  Plenty of bone, a dark slick skin, a good set of testicles, tidy sheath and a strong polled head were the qualities that attracted me to him.

Cooper’s daughters are particularly impressive.  Each year there seems to be a Cooper (PS) daughter or 2 amongst my pick of the drop.  He has been used in multiple joined paddocks each season and has proven himself to be a consistent calf-getter.

To date 23 sons at auction have averaged $5,500 with a top of $16,000 for an Australian Santa Gertrudis commercial bull record, sold in 2012 to Peter and Shari Knudsen.  6 sons that have been identified have also been sold privately and 1 son, Umpire, has also been retained. 

In the 2012 season we put Cooper out into our multiple sire commercial herd.  He sustained a couple of injuries while out there and he has since been sold, meaning this is his last offering of registered calves.

 


DUNLOP KALAHARI

SIRE: GLENN OAKS A62 263961
DAM: DUNLOP SY835 AP4.285644 
DOB: 25.08.08

Kalahari was purchased in 2010 from Santa Central for $28 000 for the top priced unled bull and the top priced horned Santa Gertrudis bull sold in Australia that year.

We took a liking to Kalahari for his character, scale and carcass quality.  Kalahari has a good, thick topline and is strong into the shoulders.  He has a docile nature, but not when there is work to be done!  He is very active and was multiple sire mated for 3 seasons, siring more than his fair share of calves.

Kalahari is producing a consistent line of progeny. He is certainly putting his stamp on them and he is now being used in the single sired herd. 

Thirty sons have sold at auction to a top at $13 000 and average just under $6 000.

 

 


Hillside Fourex (P)

HILLSIDE FOUREX (p)

SIRE: G.B.L 451 220085

DAM: DIAMOND VANITY (P) 192210

DOB: 26.09.2005

Fourex has been a bit of a "go to" sire for us for the last few seasons.  We can safely use him over yearling heifers for his good serving ability and small birthweights and this is where he has spent most of his time.  But he has been used as a backup sire in the stud herd on occassions and spent time in the commercial herd. 

His sons sell quickly when we have private sale clients looking for bulls to cover their maiden heifers and 19 sons have sold at auction to date to average $4,700.

 


HILLSIDE JACKPOT

SIRE: WACO PERU AP1.249038
DAM: HILLSIDE CATE 234398
DOB: 30.09.09

 


GRAYLYN DROVER

SIRE: WAVE HILL Z31 (P) 254052
DAM: GRAYLYN B739 (P) 222540
DOB: 21.08.07

 


WAVE HILL ERNEST 782 (PS)

SIRE: WILGAROON JESTER (P)(AI) 243261
DAM: WAVE HILL W91 240644
DOB: 16.09.09

 


HARDIGREEN PARK LEGEND

SIRE: WARENDA ROLEX 256125
DAM: PINAROO D78 221915
DOB: 19.08.07

Purchased as equal top priced unled bull at the 2009 Santa Central sale for $16, 000.

Here at Dangarfield we all appreciate the placid nature and easy doing ability of the Legend progeny.

If you want to breed big, easy doing, quiet bullocks to turn off pasture I strongly suggest having a good look through this offering of Legend sons.  We have retained 3 sons of Legend for our stud and commercial herds for this purpose. legend himself is a very active sire.  In his first year he returned a preg test result of 54/55 PTIC.  In his second year he came up with 54/56 PTIC.  We have retained plenty of his daughters and they are returning good pregnancy test results.

Legend is a big sire with great length, 1,150kg in his working clothes, a boombproof nature with large bone and a good coat.  He produces a consistent line of progeny that are easy to identify from a distance when driving around.

To date 26 sons have sold at auction to average $5,500 to a top of $12,000 for Viper (P) who sold to Riverslea Stud.
