To look at him now he certainly has a lot of presence at every angle. He’s a bull that improves every cow he’s joined to and we feel his daughters will certainly be a platform for our breeding herd in years to come. K112 has fantastic feet structure with little to no claw curl in all four feet and plenty of heel. He steps correctly and is very quiet like a lot of A241 progeny.
The cowline of this bull has a number of cows that are well proven for longevity. His mother has since been sold to Merribrook Angus, Vic. She shows a lot of capacity, and for Glenoch she had five calves for an average calving interval (ACI) of 371 days.
More impressive is the longevity of the three cows behind her. B133 is still active in the Glenoch herd, having had 11 calves for a 373 ACI. Her sire was a Glenoch bred bull whose sons sold very well, and he goes back to one of the great ones, L38, who Dunoon Angus later purchased and flushed from.
The dam of B133, Q17, also produced 11 calves for a 376 ACI and she was also the mother to V13 and W51, whose sons sold very well. Both these cows were purchased by Burenda Angus and Barr G Angus.
The dam of Q17 is F4, who was born in 1986 and was one of the earlier cows remembered by Justin. For Glenoch she had 10 calves, an ACI of 370 days and was later purchased and flushed by DSK Angus. Interestingly, of the 10 calves she had for Glenoch, nine of them were females, seven of which were later sold as breeding cows to seedstock herds Willalooka, Bunya Creek, Valorbrook and Diamond Ridge.
K112’s sire and maternal grandsire need no introduction, having had 7625 and 7120 progeny analysed through Breedplan. It’s his cowline that makes K112 that bit more special, with so many cows that are not only proven for fertility but that have bred on to produce great ones. Like most bulls, there is generally a compromise as his birth weight is quite high, but it’s hard to fault him elsewhere.
Hinman's sons have sold well over the last few years. He has a beautiful slick skin type, very correct feet, with calving ease, a great temperament, high marbling and his progeny are quick to grow.
A few years ago Hinman was entered into Cohort 7 of the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program. His progeny from this program have had data recorded since birth, and have added increased accuracy right across his EBVs. Currently, the steers are in the feedlot, and we eagerly await their carcase data.
Hinman is now in the top 35% for calving ease, top 30% for birth weight and top 5% for 200 DW (and top 13% for 400 DW, top 6% for 600 DW).
Hinman continues to reside in a commercial operation for John and Guy Campbell around the Condamine and Glenmorgan districts, and at seven years old is proving himself for longevity.
His mother D80 has proven herself for fertility, with nine calves and an average calving interval of 367 days, and she also produced a top calf every time. She always calved in the first 1-2 weeks of our calving period since her first as a two year old.
His pedigree is first class, and in particular his maternal pedigree. K615, F606, C102 are magnificent looking cows, who always calve early. The maternal granddam of C102 is Wattletop Ann P55. Lock Rogers rates this GT Maximum cow as one of his best, having produced 63 progeny and grossing around $170,000 in bull sales.
In 2018, we sold M602 to Glatz Black Angus, Avenue Range, South Australia for $25,000 prior to auction. He is now being marketed across Australia and globally, and his semen is available through Agri-Gene.
