Since then his sons have averaged $10,000 with over $1.2 million sold in walking progeny through their sale. A Sundance daughter this year achieved grand champion female and was also part of the winning interbreed champion of champions team at the royal Brisbane Ekka 2008 owned and exhibited by Mongool Charolais.
Minnie-vale Thunderbolt junior champion Sydney royal.
Junior champion bull Brisbane Ekka Minnie-vale Lancelot sold for $10,000 @ Melbourne Royal the same year.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE
Minnie-vale exhibits cattle at Sydney Royal each year as well as cattle on the northern show circuit usually Tamworth, Bingara, Baraba and Inverell shows. A total of 5 shows done annually. Unfortunately Brisbane Ekka at this stage is not currently attended as our 'on farm bull and female sale' falls close to the Ekka show dates.
It is important to note less emphasis is put on showing cattle these days, our aim is to concentrate on putting together good lines of Charolais bulls and females with good temperament, structure, fatcover, and high intra muscular fat especially in sale bulls.
