I saw this calf last June and he had the"look" of a future herd sire then and it appears he is developing nicely (thumbsup)

I also saw this guy in early August and he certainly still looks great. He could work most anywhere, and I expect he will be tough to get around at the fall shows.

I thought it was a really strong set of breds, some of them bred to Saskvalley Primo 40P and some bred to the Australian bull, KAMILAROI MEAT PACKER.
With the progress being made in the Australian shorthorn industry he makes a very exciting service sire.

I'm not putting all livestock photographers down but the practice of altering pictures is becoming a problem I think.

I was impressed with the entire sale offering. They are a solid set of cattle. The calves from Distinction looks very good. Looks to me that he is going to be a very good breeding bull!

Justintime have you personally seen the sale offering? Or, are you commenting based on the electronic pictures being promoted? Thanks

Yes I have seen the sale cattle and all the rest of the cattle at Hill Haven. I flew to Toronto on July 30th and spent a day going through the herd. They have put together a very good set of sale cattle and they have dug deep to offer their best. I personally think some of these cattle are even better than their pictures suggest. There are some females available in this sale that you can build a breeding program around.

Justintime, Not trying to be confrontational here but may I ask if you are working for hill haven and representing them for compensation?
I think it's important to be transparent and it is a fair question based on your unbridled recommendation of their cattle. Thank you.
