Stern 3886 x Highlander of Stern Embryos
These embryos are full siblings to Braveheart of Stern, arguably the sire of the year in New Zealand 2012 with sons selling strongly across the country. Braveheart has 430 recorded progeny and sons met wide appeal up to $37,000. Stern 3886 is double bred to Stern Fitzpatrick who worked until 10 years of age showing great structural integrity. Stern 3886 is a strong deep bodied cow, with strong bone, good head and excellent leg structure. She has realised $30,000 in embryo sales.
Highlander of Stern has been the feature sire at Stern over recent years selling sons to $37,000. Semen has been exported to Australia (and Europe) where sons have topped to AUD$18,000 at Millah Murrah. Highlander has left smooth skinned easy doing cattle with clean shoulders and deep bodies. He has good bone, a tight pizzle and large testicles.
This is a mating that has really put some punch into the progeny resulting in above? Predicted mid-parent EBVs’. Braveheart’s EBVs range from BW +6.3 to 98 for 600D, EMA +7.5, Rib/Rump +1.3, IMF +1.3
There are few New Zealand genetics with the credentials of this mating.
