About Our Cows

This list shows the breeding females currently in the Cadfor herd. In their data we show the EBV histogram which graphically depicts their genetic merit. Our cows have been making steady genetic progress as shown in the graph on the left. 80% of our mature females are now in the breed’s top 20% for at least one of the three $Indices (Vealer Terminal, Supermarket or EU Heavy Steer).

The second graph shows the actual daily weight gain of the Cadfor calves to 200 days over the past 10 years.

In the individual female listings we list the number of progeny that they have had, the average birth weight of their calves and the progeny’s average weight gain to 200 days. Be aware that if the cow has had 2 calves but as yet the second calf has not been weaned, the 200 day weight gain will only reflect the performance of the first calf.

This young cow has a double cross of Willalooka Arthur caused by us having to use Cadfor Destiny as an emergency heifer bull . Her own calf carries an additional cross of Arthur because we had to use Cadfor Guardian as an emergency heifer bull when Wallawong Sheffield was injured. Not a deliberate line breeding policy but sometimes these things happen.

She looks like a very nice heifer. We will see how she performs.

This heifer is by Cadfor Guardian. Guardian was used over heifers after his sire Wallawong Sheffield was injured. We have kept 5 heifers by Guardian but all are on notice that they will have to perform.

This heifer’s Breedplan data suggests she has too much fat and not enough muscle but we will give her an opportunity to prove herself. She calved in the worst of the winter conditions in July 2015 and has struggled a bit feeding her first calf.

Wallawong Impost J9 was purchased in calf to Wallawong Xyris who was the top priced bull at the Wallawong sale 2015. The resulting bull calf was unfortunately too big to be retained as a bull. J9 and her steer calf won the Lake Edward trophy at the 2016 Crookwell Show for “the female with the greatest capacity to turn grass into beef”.

Impost J9 had suffered in the drought conditions at Gunnedah and has not grown to her potential. We are hoping she will make some compensatory growth. Her future in our herd, as for all our females, will depend on her subsequent performance.
