2020 National Female Sale

NINDETHANA is excited to be offering four unjoined heifers (Lots 181 – 184) at the National Female Sale on 14 March 2020 at the Gympie Saleyards.

All heifers are the progeny of KARRAGARRA MILES.

The heifers have been SIRE VERIFIED and have been PESTIVIRUS tested negative; POMPES tested free; fully VACCINATED (7 in 1; 3 day; botulism; pestivirus; and three germ tick fever); and pregnancy tested to confirm that they are empty.

Our herd has been tested for Bovine Johnes’ Disease (test date 1 May 2019) and we have a J-BAS 7 (WA) rating.

The females have been raised in paddocks that mostly comprise gentle slopes, creek and river flats.  Our area has plenty of ticks!   They have been grass fed (when we had grass) with access to Ag Solutions mineral supplements and more recently, FeedPro mineral liquid supplement.  During the dry months, they were maintained on a baled Rhodes/millet mix and baled barley.  More recently, they have enjoyed lush green grass, thanks to the welcomed rain during January and February.

KARRAGARRA MILES (P) D5

Sire:     Glenlands Pistol
Dam:   Ivanhoe Haldana

Miles was purchased at the 2016 DN Sale for $38,000.  He immediately took our eye, displaying incredible depth, length, thickness, and bone, in addition to an impeccable sheath and strong polled head.  And to top it off, he has a lovey quiet temperament.

At 28 months of age, Miles tipped the scales at 920 kg and boasted an EMA of 134, fat scans of 15/11, a scrotal circumference of 45.5 cms, semen mobility at 90% and semen morphology at 92%.

During his four seasons at Nindethana, Miles has maintained his weight, libido and fertility.  He is profoundly determined and returns excellent pregnancy rates each year.  His annual semen tests have not altered since purchase, returning a morphology result of 89% – 92% every year.

Miles has produced a lovely line of calves, the first of which debuted at the 2019 National Female Sale topping at $4,250 followed by the 2019 Bunya Bull Sale and DN Sale, where his sons sold to a top of $16,000.
