In 2018 we are using more of our own home bred sires in our herd as we feel they are as good if not better than some of the AI sires available.
|Sire||JSR Trophy 88T|
|Dam||Sparrows Tempest 174K|
PCC Spartan 4Y was the Canadian Reserve National Champion bull in 2014 and is another outstanding son of Sparrows Tempest 174K who is proving to be one of the leading matrons in Canada.
Wakefield Charolais have secured the Australian semen rights for this polled bull and semen is available from United Cattle Breeding Service.
Spartan has been an outstanding bull from the start for Prairie Cove Charolais, exhibiting a tremendous length of body and topline and stamping his progeny with the same 'classy' look.
Spartan has been breeding very soft, true to type feminine females that are easy doing and fertile with wonderful udders. We would expect them to milk well and they have wonderful temperaments!
The Spartan sons have a lovely softness to them, although they have the growth and muscularity with plenty down the back leg! They are sound in the feet and testicles, which is very important to us and our bull buyers.
|Sire||Merit Vintage 4065P|
|Dam||Target PLD Ginny 40P|
This Homozygous Canadian sire has been picked for use in our herd for his growth, muscularity and overall eye appeal. We are excited to see what the progeny will be like, we are sure they will be true to type for the breed.
|Dam||SVY Starstruck 8X|
Wakefield have been very happy with the progeny arriving by this homozygous polled bull from Canada, Elder's Blackjack. The calves are born easily and are growing very well. They look to have a softness and good doing ability with wonderful temperaments.
|Sire||Harvie Jager 65J|
|Dam||Harvie Miss Gellia 35G|
A Canadian red factor sire who is producing progeny with style and structure. He provides positive carcase traits with extraordinary growth and positive calving ease. We have used Mojo extensively and he is throwing uniform progeny with great phenotypes.
Pinay has been used extensively in the Wakefield herd for his calving ease, growth and breed leading eye muscle area. His daughters have tremendous calving ease and are proving very valuable in our herd.
|Sire||Sparrows Sanchez 715T (P)|
|Dam||CML PLD Wilma 3S|
CML Encore has been used at Wakefield to add new polled genetics from Canada. We are very happy with the progeny, the bulls and heifers have plenty of eye appeal, are deep flanked and have tremendous conformation. The top priced bull at our 2017 sale was an outstanding son of Encore, Wakefield Millennium M154 selling for $12,000 to Vida Montana Charolais stud.
|Dam||Advance Goldstar Y46|
Advance Domino has been used for his softness, growth and finishing ability and tremendous phenotype. The progeny have good temperaments, are deep flanked with capacity and are exhibiting all the characteristics of this sire. Domino was Interbreed Champion at the Ekka in 2010.
|Sire||MVX Cougarhill Hank 720G|
|Dam||Sparrows Tempest 174K|
Wakefield Charolais have recently secured the Australian semen rights for this outstanding sire. He was the Canadian Western Agribition Champion in 2010 and his progeny in Australia and Canada have been performing very well. His daughters have been winning at National shows in Australia and Canada.
His mother Sparrows Tempest is a fourteen year old Donor cow at Prairie Cove Charolais. She is extremely fertile still being flushed and producing 12 A-Grade embryos in 2014.
PCC Sudden Impact will improve top lines, length of body, fertility, growth, longevity and phenotype. We recommend he is joined to mature cows only.
|Dam||Wakefield Brilliant B958E|
Jumble has been used in the Wakefield herd very successfully. He has given us feminine, fertile, deep flanked daughters with correct frames and udders, good feet and legs and tremendous top lines.
The Jumble bulls are muscular, with tremendous growth. They are very correct with wonderful phenotypes.
Wakefield Autumn 18 is a Jumble daughter that we sold to CB Charolais stud at our sale in 2017. She has been winning Supreme Beef Exhibit at Dorrigo and Guyra Shows this year and is an outstanding red factor heifer out of an Indiana cow.
|Dam||Winn Mans Merit 036K|
The Winn Mans Lanza daughters have shown exceptional growth, surprising us when we weighed them and they were 50kg heavier then their group run under the same conditions. This Canadian sire is a sound footed animal, with great length and substance, that our daughter Lucy saw in the flesh out with cows at the Sparrows stud at age 9.
