Sire:  Swan 609
Dam:  Nindethana Flo
Indent:  NPH19300M
DOB:  20/10/19
Age:  22 Months

An AI calf by the legendary SWAN 609, Legend is a soft young bull with plenty of depth, thickness and loose skin.  He has a beautiful tropical coat and a lovey head. His temperament is impeccable – absolutely bomb proof!!!

Legend’s sire, Swan 609 was arguably the most influential sire of his time! Bred by the late Jack & Elaine Swan and sold to Woodlyn Stud (Dorothy & Jim Crombie) in 1989, ‘609’ returned to the Swan stable two years later but tragically died from injuries following an accident in 1993. Over a two and a half year period, ‘609’ produced 31 sons that sold at auction for a gross of $180,000. Described by the late Jack Swan as “a massive heavily fleshed sire and prolific calf getter, who was the most influential sire in the Swan herd”, Swan 609’s legacy lives on through AI and IVF programs. His semen is tightly held.

Legend’s dam, Nindethana Flo (Bryvonlea Malachi) is one of our best! A beautiful female that has produced four calves: a decorated show bull (Impact) sold to La Shae Stud in 2018, another show bull sold at the 2019 DN Sale (Jack), a retained heifer (Katarina), Legend, and a stunning heifer calf by Rondel Preston that will be retained.  Flo has joined our IVF donor program and is being used with Rondel Whiskey and Rondel Preston.

Sire:  Karragarra Miles
Dam: Nindethana Fairibel
Indent:  NPH19309M
DOB:  22/12/19
Age:  20 Months

An early maturing, easy doing young bull, Lewis is well fleshed and shows good bone and muscling.

Lewis’ sire, Karragarra Miles (Glenlands Pistol) was purchased in 2016 for $38,000.  He is long, deep, thick, stands on good bone and has an amazing temperament. At 28 months of age he weighed 920kg, boasted an EMA of 134 cms, fat scans of 15/11, a scrotal circumstance of 45.5cm, semen motility of 90% and morphology of 92%.  During his five seasons at Nindethana, he has maintained his weight, libido and fertility and every year, returns a morphology result of 89%-92%.  Miles’ sons have sold to a top of $16,000 and daughters to $4,250.

Dam, Nindethana Fairibel (Bryvonlea Malachi) is from our most successful female line going back to Wundaburra Miribel, a female that made a significant contribution to our herd.  Four generations of females from this line have been retained, and several bulls have been sold for breeding purposes.  Fairibel has had five calves in five years: a bull sold at the 2018 Bunya Bull Sale (Invincible), another that was sadly euthanised after suffering paralysis following 3 day (Jackabull), a retained heifer (Kuteabel), Lewis, and a weaner bull.
