SIRE: BIG SUR YEOMAN 146929
The Beef '97 Grand Champion. When season permits we run AI programs on our leading heifers and use Eyewitness over the majority of them. Eyewitness produced strong toplines and carcass on his progney. He consistently produced cattle that were a dark cherry red with a good coat and great carcase qualities.
Over the years Eyewitness has gave us some top daughters and he is also the sire to one of our most noted sires in Dangarfield Improvement.
SIRE: WACO JACK 198468
A lighter coloured poll bull with a power of muscle and near perfect sheath - the spitting image of his sire.
Jack Junior (P) was a stand out sire of Dangarfield from his first season due to the consistent performance of his progney across all fields. We could rely on his bulls to sell well at auction, his daughters to be consistent in their breeding, and his steers to earn top dollar out of the paddock with a majority of them being polled to boot.
Jack Junior (P) progeny were a soft line with plenty of polls and were easily identified in the mob due to his strong influence.
A great son was retained to replace Junior in Dangarfield Quarterback (P). This individual is a heavily muscled, easy doing sire witha placid nature. Quarterback's (P) first progeny were due in 2010. Follow our current sires page to see what Quarterback (P) is producing.
2009 saw 3 sons having been retained in the stud, and 29 sons sell at auction to gross just under $190,000 with a top of $17,000, and averaging just under $6,500.
SIRE: DANGARFIELD KACTUS JACK 235971
Patrol Chief has a pedigree that combines some of our best bloodlines for fertlility and performance from ur herd over the last 15 years or more. His dam, 3467 had 9 calves with a 366-day calving interval.
Patrol Chief was an impressive individual. Long, thick, soft and loose skin, he had all the best qualities from his pedigree coming out in him and he passed this onto his progeny.
Patrol Chief was probably not used to his full potential in his early working life as he was only multiple joined. Once we realised his sire strength, he was single sired to some of our best cows.
He was found crippled halfway through the 2011/2012 joining season and had to be put down, making this his last offering of natural calves. We have not used him in our first ET programs but we fully intend to over the next couple of year.
2012 saw Patrol Chief's 20 sons sell at auction to gross just short of $212,000, and average $10,600 with a top of $24,000 for Titan (P) selling to Allendale Stud.
SIRE: WAVE HILL MATLOCK (PS) 204507
Purchased in 2004 for $13,000 he has produced exactly what he was purchased for - poll cattle with plenty of muscle power with a strong topline, good bone, excellent temperament just like himself. Throwing small birthweights, he has been single-sired to maiden heifers with absolutely no calving problems. Matlock's (P) daughters shaped up to be valuable breeders with strong preg test results, early calving dates and perfect udders.
His sons sold extremely well, with 13 at auction averaging just under $6,600, and he achieved top price of the sale in 2006 at $15,000, selling to Kidman & Co.
SIRE: WARRILEE 389 190311
A quiet achiever in our herd. Purchased at the Big S Sale in 2004 for a second top of $14,000, Vernon was selected for his breed character and perfect sheath and navel. These traits have a strong influence in his progeny, they are trim, tidy and have loads of character.
Vernon has been our resident sire for joining to maiden heifers. He returns strong preg test results and his daughters are now doing the same. They are producing some big weaners for us and are versatile breeders, leaving it open to join them to a range of sires. They are an impressive group and regularly catch people’s attention upon inspection when going around Dangarfield.
