Irish Herefords Society Visit - Jan 2017

Courallie Dispersal Purchase - Nov 2016

Courallie Monica HH1J541 purchased at the Courallie dispersal for $8000.

We felt she was a stand out on the day and presented as an extremely feminine young cow. She is just over 3 years old, the proof of her milking ability is in the very impressive heavy heifer calf at foot. Monica J541 has an udder as good as you will find. After a successful flush today to the $52,000 Glendan Park Knockout sire we have high hopes for this cow, and are confident she will produce some top end progeny to take us in to the years to come.
