HIGHLANDS DROUGHTMASTER SALE
CLERMONT SELLING COMPLEX
FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 2021
Strathfield and Strathfield 9JE have catalogued a line-up of 11 exciting young sire prospects for the 2021 Highlands Droughtmaster Sale, which coincidently is the 30th year for the sale.
This is a perfect chance for the astute cattleman or woman to secure a top-quality young bull backed by over 60 years of breeding, spanning three generations of cattlemen.
As usual, these bulls have been selected with stringent criteria in mind and this is reflected in their individual figures. Only the top calves are selected to receive the stud brand and this year's selection for the Highlands Sale are no exception.
As usual, Strathfield bulls only have a light preparation and spend their youth "toughing it out" in the paddock so that they develop a hardiness and adaptability for drought conditions, thus ensuring that the Strathfield cattle will go out and work with a minimum of fuss.
Every so often, along comes a bull that really catches the eye and this is one such bull.
Lennox is a strong, robust young bull with incredible length - something that is missing in many of today's modern Droughtmasters. Length = money!
A well muscled, structurally correct youngster sporting a lovely clean tropical coat, good depth and spring of rib, coupled with a real sire's disposition.
His dam suffered an injury and was culled at 5 years of age. She had 3 calves, her first heifer retained in our commercial herd, one stud heifer retained and Lennox.
Sporting a lovely polled head, great angle of shoulder, thickness and masculinity, Mason would be a great asset to any beef business, whether it be in the stud or commercial arena.
His dam was purchased as a maiden heifer at the Motovation dispersal sale and was culled at 13 years of age due to ongoing drought conditions. Goldie produced 10 calves in 10 years and possessed very strong mothering instincts.
STRATHFIELD LOXTON (P) D5 - LOT 15
A well muscled calf with a clean polled head.
Only just starting to hit his straps, this young bull is a ball of muscle and athleticism. A very mobile youngster with great walking abilities - he'll certainly cover the miles in a big paddock.
Out of Strathfield Thyme 2nd who has produced 3 registered females, 1 commercial female and one steer.
A higher contented young sire with immense length. Remember - length = weight=money in the bank.
Lowell is a very easy-doing youngster with a heap of growing left to do. He is really only just hitting his straps and will develop into a great sire in the future.
His good, clean tropical coat and tidy underline are both very desirable traits and make him suitable for all aspects of the cattle industry.
A very thick, meaty young sire that oozes sire appeal and masculinity. If you want to breed meat, then this is the bull to do it for you.
He comes from a very strong line of polled genetics.
Lucian is out of a first-calf heifer who currently has a female calf at foot.
