At 16 months of age, LV MARBLEHEAD 69's post thaw semen thaw tests were of good quality which rated him to be highly fertile. 15 pregnancies from 17 straws were the achieved results from his first synchronised AI program in Australia.
His calves are very robust with a superior survival instinct to suck within minutes (sometimes seconds) of being born. They all carry his trademark light grey colour, good length and evenness . Average calf birth weight to date is 33 kilos.
This bull is proving himself to be a very valuable asset to the future progress of our polled herd. His first semen release will be 2 packages of 5 straws each at the BIG COUNTRY sale in early February 2013.

Our new young Australian bred bull who has keenly started breeding to a small select group of full Hudgins older cows and will enter the main Stud breeding herd later this season as an "elite clean up" bull.
He's gentle, thick boned, loose with lots of skin and polled as a bonus.
High quality semen was tested and collected by Caeser Castaneda (Government vet) at BBS, Rockhampton.

Mr Henry is on consignment to us from our good friends Michael and Lisa James and family, Triton Farms in Louisiana.
Although used lightly to keep up the Hudgins influence in our herd, this bull has really produced some good offspring for us.
His daughters are breeding on well in America for Triton Farms and we are also experiencing a very high percentage uptake using his straws for AI.
