About Our Cows

Our herd has been making steady genetic progress as shown in the three graphs on the right or below. 80% of our cows 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.

This list of cows below shows the breeding females currently in the Cadfor herd. In their data we show the EBV histogram which graphically depicts their genetic merit.

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.

Cadfor Jessica G209

Sire

Breeder
Genetic Status
Progeny 5
BW
ADG 200

This young cow has a double cross of Willalooka Arthur caused by us having to use Cadfor Destiny as an emergency heifer bull . Her daughter Jessica J266 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 matron. She has a very high IMF percentage.  We will see how she performs.

An attractive package and her calves exude quality. For her size she produces a great weaner. Her second calf, a steer, was 397 kg at weaning. The growth rates of her calves make a mockery of her 200 day weight and milk EBVs.

This heifer was the youngest of her group and did a pretty good job with her first calf which went on to be a bull shared between two local commercial herds. She stands out for her good deep frame and overall length. Extremely placid. Very pleased with her.

This heifer got a trifle confused having her first calf and chased around the other newborn calves trying to steal them just as she started to have hers. A nice maternal heifer with plenty of milk. She has a triple cross of Arthur after our problems with our heifer bull a few years ago. Her first calf, Cadfor Maestro M243 by Wallawong Vanilla, was purchased by a commercial client at Biala.

We bought Dajory Eve at Wodonga National Show and Sale where she placed second in her class. We had not planned to make any purchases but she caught our eye and has impressed ever since. A wonderfully muscled yet feminine female, her first calf by Wallawong Vanilla was a standout, Cadfor Mr Kool K200, now retained for stud duties at Cadfor.  Her second son, Cadfor Leyton L237, went to a commercial herd at Nyngan while her third, Cadfor Myogenic M267 went the Lindsay stud in Victoria.  We await a heifer from her.

Progeny 7

ADG 200

Miss Impressive E48 did not impress with her first calf but her second effort was much better. She is not the best milker in the herd. The Champion Carcase steer at Sydney 2015 was from the Miss Impressive line, we hope she will produce some well muscled offspring.

E48 gave birth to a heifer by Wallawong Vanilla on 11 February 2016, my mother’s 100th birthday.  We called the heifer Cadfor Lorna M100 and she is developing quite well too.

Dawn F21’s calves have some of the best growth rates in our herd. One of our best producers.  Her only problem is that she tends to have large calves and our clients like a small birth weight and superior calving ease.

Wallawong Impost J9 (BF)

Breeder
Current Owner
Genetic Status
Progeny 3
BW
ADG 200 

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 had not grown to her potential.  She is a great milker however and is very maternal.

J9’s second calf, by Banksia Ridge Harry, had a difficult start to life because her mother got confused and decided that a silver calf born the same night was her calf.  It took over a week for us to convince J9 that M331 was hers.  However, once they were reunited the heifer grew very well indeed and is now one of our best young females.
