Sires

Kelly Angus use a range of stand-out, industry proven Angus sires throughout our breeding herds.

Being at the forefront of genetic trends and influences, we actively seek out sire-lines who add bandwidth to our unique, yet competitive breeding approach to the Angus breed.

The considered use of genetics and nutrition ensures the stud delivers ongoing improvements to the ‘eating quality’ of the cattle we produce. Comprehensive data evaluation, research and sourcing of genetics from leading Angus sires both in Australia and the US, keeps the stud’s gene pool sleek, efficient and phenotypically sound.

The increased importance of marbling (IMF) and EMA in the red meat sector, we select sires with the data traits that add value to our clients ‘long game’ return on investment.

The chosen bloodlines Kelly Angus use meet the stud’s ‘core’ breeding criteria and complement the herd’s existing depth and quality year after year.

Bringing leading industry sire, Hazeldean Jackpot and other Australian sires, including the powerhouse sire, Texas Powerplay DXTP613, into the herd has introduced new genetics that have focused on producing sure-footed animals with quiet even temperaments, excellent genomics, EBV’s and good carcase traits.

Bulls from the renowned US Gardiner Angus Ranch feature heavily throughout the Kelly Angus sire program.  GAR Surefire, Sunrise and Profit bulls introduced in previous years have proven the value of the GAR bloodlines with the genetic improvements we have witnessed.

Current AI sires, GAR Proactive and GAR Inertia are producing very tidy calves with heaps of style, carcase and that are easy doing, along with good growth weights and his female progeny present with good frames and capacity.

Hazeldean Jackpot was purchased to blend through the herd to develop even stronger females and stylish, high performance moderate framed bulls that are docile, easy doing, feed efficient and whose weight gains are well in front.  This sire is leaving his mark on the breeding herd with the even-line of progeny he has now sired with the females retained and added to our core breeding herd.

A carcase driven bull, PA Full Power presents with high IMF and his progeny show good early growth data while keeping all other EBVs in proportion.   Suitable for both heifers and cows, the Black Onyx sons present very well with great data sets and will deliver power early in any breeders’ program.  The Texas K2 sons are powerful larger framed bulls which can be used to increase frame size and to add volume.

Kelly Angus Quinn GXNQ209, is a “curve bender” with exceptional calving ease, low birth weight transforming to an excellent growth spread offering quality carcase traits to match.
