This 5 star brother of Lot 12, same sire LAR18-041 is a real looker! His sire LAR18-041, with 13 sons on sale has bred exceptionally well with beautiful feminine females and robust fleshy bulls as in Lot 12 and Lot 14. This herd sire LAR18-041 (Lot 12 in 2021) was sold to Lawrence Allem and numerous co-owners. We used Lot 14 in a multiply sire group as a year old in a group of heifers. When selecting a bull to open heifers, we find there are multiple contributing factors which influence the criteria for this selection. The birth mass itself has several factors which influence the actual weight of the calf so we generally tend more towards the genetic selection of bulls to use on heifers, rather than only birth mass and the ease of calving EBVs. If the conformation of the heifer is suitable, broad in the pin bones, well grown with capacity, then a moderate phenotypically functional bull will be suitable for the heifers without compromising on growth and conformation. Lot 14, a bull with exceptional conformation, very good masculine head and hump, he is wide awake with notable libido!  His high producing and good looking dam line stem from the exceptional cow LAR09-236 (100/10 calves) and is also the sister of LAR14-173’s dam LAR10-159. An exceptionally well connect pedigree. LAR09-236 was bought by Eloff Muller, Tambaraine Bonsmaras in 2021. Lot 14 with his exceptional growth figures and indexes is favourably short on the leg with remarkable length, 1:28 HL ratio, A heavy weaner, 265 kg for a first calver, and outstanding growth on D Phase test with a final weight of 490kgs.
