Texas Longhorn Breeders in Australia - Newsletter
Attached is edition #7 of the Texas Longhorn Australia Newsletter the "Horny Herald." There is a great deal of excitement over Texas Longhorns down under as the many unique attributes for profit in the big cattle country are tested and proven.
The first all Texas Longhorn sale was just staged, and for a first go at it, all were very pleased. The highlight of the sale was top selling female bred by Don Constable, consigned by Greg and Pam Press and purchased by Gordon and Desley Davidson. Southern Cross Millie was a Westward Ho daughter, as slick as a seal, and a top specimen. She brought $3200.
Many years ago Westward Ho semen was exported from Dickinson Cattle Co. Inc, to Australia and purchased by Don Constable and a group of other breeders. Prior to that, semen was sent to Australia from the famous DCCI sire, The Shadow. Today Australians can purchase DCCI semen from two Watusi bulls, Buffalo Bill and Akeem. Two Texas Longhorn bulls are available, Drag Iron and Tempter. We congratulate the TLA on their first sale and we are excited to have provided the genetics to produce the high selling cow.
Enjoy this attached news letter and you will sense the excitement caused by Texas Longhorns as the poineer producers are developing more and more herd quality, and TLA membership continues to increase.
We plan to collect a new bull for Australia and Europe this winter to be available in early spring.
