We currently have 35 heterozygous polled females, 7 homozygous polled females, 2 heterozygous polled bull calves and 4 homozygous polled bulls. That is a total of 48 polled animals in our herd. The total will be 56 animals after our animals are delivered that are already sold, not counting steers, and deducting the animals that still remain for sale. This means we only have 8 horned females left in the herd and to add polling to their progeny is easy as the bulls used will all be homozygous!
The use of AI also gives us access to some different polled genetics with Belle Fourche Clay, Mrald Overture, KP Yarra Storm, Wattlebank Torpedo, Baunatal Kenny O'Shea, Baunatal Magic Merlin and Kalinda Angus straws all in our tank.
