Dear Fellow Brahman Breeders


Life at Mogul remains busy all-year-round. 


In spite of the rain, we had a very encouraging roll-up at “The Land” Northern Beef Week Open Day on Monday 25th June.  Visitors were able to see our 2007 line-up of red and grey bulls for sale, our elite weaner calves, from which our next group of show cattle and sale bulls will be selected, and our outstanding show cattle, which have done so well at Royal, Feature and other regional shows.


The sale season has already begun.  Casino All-Breeds Sale saw Mogul selling six bulls, with our grey bull, Mogul Sorrento, selling for $4,000.00 - the top priced Brahman bull.


We have entered eight bulls, lots 55-62, and six heifers, lots 91-96, for the Grafton Bos Indicus Sale on 1st September 2007.  Included in the draft is Mogul Swagman, a grey well-bodied bull with an outstanding show record by Mogul Oakwood.  He was Senior and Grand Champion at the North Coast National, in Lismore in 2006 and in Maclean in 2007, Reserve Senior Champion at the Toowoomba Feature Show in 2007, and Senior Champion at both Sydney Royal and Grafton Feature Shows in 2007.  Another outstanding entry in Grafton is the very thick red bull by Mogul Maseratti, Mogul Shreik.  In October we have five outstanding two year-old grey bulls on offer at Rockhampton Brahman Week on day 1, Monday October 1, lots 244-248.  See our website for photos and pedigrees of these bulls and other sale cattle.


2006 saw us sell the outstanding red heifer Mogul Sue Ellen by Lanes Creek Revolution to Brett Nobbs in Queensland for $30,000.00.  We are now offering two year old bull calves by her sire for sale.  They are available for inspection on property. 


Mogul Miss Fontenot 8th by Mr Fontenot 125 won more championships over the past year, including Senior Championship Female at Sydney Royal in 2007, Supreme Bos Indicus Exhibit and Supreme Exhibit of the Show at the Maclean Show 2007 and Reserve Senior Championship at the 2007 Grafton Feature Show.  She now has an outstanding red heifer calf at foot by Lanes Creek Revolution — see the website.  Another top red heifer, Mogul Miss I Wittlesea 2nd by Edenglassie Red Texan, won Junior and Grand Championship Female ribbons at the 2007 Sydney Royal Easter Show and was also awarded the Best Exhibit Rosette.  She was Reserve Junior Champion at the Toowoomba Feature Show.  We also won the Kyabra trophy for the 17th time.


We have expanded our line of sires with the purchase of two new grey bulls — PBF Cossack Manso 676 and Timbrel Mr Q Pak Manso 255.  See our website for further details.


In December 2006 we visited Thailand to see how the cattle we exported there in 2005 were faring.  They had settled in well.  Semen from Mogul Regent was being sold to local cattlemen and some of the females had calves at foot. 


Mogul Performance Brahmans continues to add value for our clients by utilising technological innovations such as Genestar tenderness testing.  This supplements our 25 years of experience with embryo transfer and twenty years of Breedplan recording.
