10th May 2000

Welcome to our year 2000 Newsletter. It follows an outstanding 2000 Royal Easter Show, in keeping with our new logo of Mogul Performance Brahmans.

The past twelve months have been especially rewarding, with Mogul winning many major championships in both NSW and Queensland (Toowoomba Royal), enabling us to win the Kyabra Trophy for the 13th time; topping the sale at the 1999 Grafton Bos Indicus Sale; having further success in carcase competitions and helping our clients improve their herds.

After having won Junior and Grand Champion Bull at Maclean 1999, and Junior Champion at both Grafton and Coffs Harbour 1999, Mogul Kirby was Senior and Grand Champion Bull at the 1999 North Coast National, Lismore. His greatest success has been his Senior and Grand Championship and Best Exhibit award at the 2000 Royal Easter Show, Sydney.

Also successful at Sydney 2000 were: Mogul Miss Wittlesea Manso winning Senior and Grand Champion Female, Mogul Miss Michelle Manso 4th winning Reserve Senior Champion Female and Mogul Miss P.N. Myalla 2nd winning Junior Champion Female. With these successes Mogul has now won 81 Royal Show Championships.

Mogul Miss P.N. Myalla 2nd is the first daughter of our red sire Palmvale Napoleon to win a Royal Show Championship.

Mogul Miss Michelle 20th placed 3rd in the 1999 ABBA Dam of the Year Competition. Some of her progeny include: Mogul Jardine, Supreme Exhibit 1999 Grafton Brahman Feature Show and Mogul Miss Michelle Manso 4th, Supreme Exhibit 1999 Maclean Show and Reserve Senior Champion Female 2000 Sydney Royal Easter Show.

As in 1999, we are pleased to offer our successful Show Bulls as part of our 2000 On Property offering.

Mogul Jardine was sold privately to southern NSW and Mogul Judd was top-priced bull at the 1999 Grafton Bos Indicus Sale.

The selection for this yearís offering will also include:

We invite you to inspect and purchase your selection from this quality offering.

We have Breedplan figures available for the cattle on offer. Our Breedplan figures for 200-day, 400-day and 600-day EBVís continue to exceed the Brahman Group Breedplan National Averages.

We are now able to offer semen from Mogul Gaucho Manso (by JDH Mr Manso 61/9). His Brahman Breedplan EBVís for milk of +2, 400 day weight of +30 and 600 day weight of +46 are in the top 5% band ranking. His 200 day weight ranking of +20 is in the top 10%.

Our cattle not only performed well in the showring, but our steers again demonstrated what many of our clients over the years have known - Mogul Brahmans produce more and better beef. In the 2000 Royal Easter Show Japanese-Ox Feedlot Steer competition, one of our purebred Brahman steers was 3rd in the yield section for carcases.

One of the best demonstrations of the value of Mogul Performance Brahmans has been the successes of a number of our clients:

Our clients continue to top the markets in Grafton with progeny of Mogul bulls.

Another showed progeny of a Mogul bull to win Interbreed Championships during the 1999 Spring show season on the very competitive NSW North Coast show circuit.

The 2000 Royal Easter Show Reserve Junior Champion Female was Sired by Fairy Springs Jo Jo, one of our red sires. Thus both of our red sires have now sired Royal Show Champions.

To further add to our quality imported bloodlines, we purchased Jay-W Sir Bruce, a heavily-muscled son of JDH Elefante R Manso 272 (imp US) at Brahman Week.

To further enhance our breeding herd, at the Hudgins Blood Female sale, during Beef 2000, we bought Kabala Skye for the top-price of the sale at $21,000.00. She is a full Hudgins blood female and was described as the outstanding female of the sale. Her sire is JDH Madison de Manso (imp US) and her granddam was dam of the Grand Champion Bull at Beef 2000.

We will be offering progeny of this outstanding female by embryo transfer in the future.

Once again we invite you to visit and inspect our cattle and our exciting new purchases.
