  • Impressive bull lines on display

    Prominence gained at the Poll Hereford breed's national shows and sales stems from the consistency and depth of quality produced in the Days Whiteface herd.

Days Whiteface will be displaying its outstanding lines of Poll Hereford bulls reserved for an upcoming on-farm sale.

Lachy and Lou Day have 40 bulls catalogued for their on-property sale at Bordertown, some of which will be on display during the week-long beef event.

Bulls featuring very strongly as sires include the $90000 Days Calibre, a trait leader for all weight categories, scrotal size and intra-muscular fat (IMF) and is also in the top one per cent for all indexes.

Days Robin Hood H38, the sire of the 2016 Dubbo champion, is a trait leader for gestation length and EMR, while Days Patrick H37, the EU performance class winner at Dubbo, is a trait leader for 200 day weight and gestation length and is in the top one per cent for IMF and the top five per cent for all indexes.

In addition, the USA bull TH Mr Hereford 342 (son sold for $43000 at Dubbo in 2016) is a trait leader for 200 and 400 day weight and in the top five per cent for milk, EMA and all indexes.

■The Days Whiteface stud sale will be on February 29, in conjunction with the Allendale stud.
