Braelyn's most recently purchased sires have come from the Allendale, Talbalba and Merawah Studs. We have also used home bred sires produced by joining the best of our stud females to AI sires that have had a strong impact within the breed. AI Sires recently used have included Yarram Unique F107, Yarram Unique F181 and WLB Global 72M 50S.
Allendale Washington G82 (ET) (P)
We were fortunate to have purchased Washington as a proven sire; he has been used successfully at Allendale and Kerlson Pines and we are very pleased with his early progeny. He’s a balanced all round performer with a particular strength in improving IMF marbling. His dam, Allendale Fancy Z59 is one of the best cows at Allendale having produced a number of outstanding Washington sons, while his sire Allendale Waterhouse D1 has been influential in the breed.

Talbalba Advance L199 (H)
Purchased at the 2017 Talbalba sale, we selected Advance L199 because he combined an excellent phenotype, strong Breedplan figures particularly for IMF marbling, as well as a pedigree of individuals who have had positive influences on the breed. Advance L199 is also an outcross to our herd, although his dam line goes back to Widgiewa Governor 2138 whose bloodline continues to perform strongly in our program, adding weight and muscle to his progeny.
Braelyn Sapper N040
Grandson of the great Allendale Anzac E114 and from a Valma Odyssey daughter. He demonstrates great carcass attributes, including a strong top line. This attributes are backed up by excellent Breedplan figures, especially carcase weight, IMF and EMA scores which are all well above breed averages. He will be first joined this coming 2019 season.
Braelyn Unique K186 (AI) (H)
Braelyn Unique was our top “K” drop horned calf. Another all round performer, he’s been very successfully used over heifers. He’s sired by horned performance leader Yarram Unique F181 and his highly rated dam has Coora Camooweal Q81 and Red Hill Rockford Roy as grandsires.
Braelyn Jovial K017 (AI) (P)
Our program has always balanced form with function. Jovial K017 has bred well for us leaving quality progeny with good skin and hair type. His sire, Tycolah Jovial F77 was a Junior Champion in Sydney before coming back the following year to claim the Senior, Grand and Interbreed Championships. K017's maternal grandsire, JHW Yardstick, was the polled Junior Champion at the Sydney 2004 feature breed showing.

Braelyn Camooweal G048 (H)
We selected Camooweal G048 as the top calf of his drop. He was a standout from birth, exhibiting an excellent phenotype and very good weight gain. His pedigree includes successful sires such as Lyonbank National and Widgiewa Jabiru, while his dam has been one of our best breeders. He's leaving progeny with growth and excellent cosmetics.
Braelyn Governor M157 (AI)(H)
Intermediate Champion at the 2018 feature breed showing at Sydney Royal, Braelyn Governor M157 AI is a bull with great length, depth and thickness which combined with an excellent phenotype, makes him a quality individual. His dam is from the Pansy cow line which continues to breed extremely well for us. Semen has been retained for in herd use only.
Cootharaba Simpson G170 (H)
Simpson has consistently bred commercially relevant progeny with desirable carcass attributes in his sons while his daughters display constitution and doing ability. His powerful three generation pedigree includes the four sires Vena Park Jackpot, Academy Extra Special, Vena Park Sharka and Monreid President.
Yarram Unique F107 (AI Sire)
Yarram Unique F107 is sired by Mawarra Unique C041 who has a number of his sons retained for use in the Yarram Park herd. Yarram Park say of F107, " he is one of the very top bulls we have bred. Beautifully balanced and free moving, F107 offers the complete package with great carcase and capacity, yet still soft and smooth coated." An AI joining to him has produced Braelyn Unique L168, out of one of our best cows, Braelyn Cherry Ripe F130 AI. His first calves are on the ground and are very pleasing. A son of F107 topped the Yarram Park sale in 2018, selling for $26,000.
Yarram Unique F181 (AI Sire)
Yarram Unique F181 is by top sire Marwarra Unique C041; his figures display a low birth, high growth, exceptional EMA, high IMF bull with positive figures for calving ease. He is the highest ranked horned Hereford sire by Grain Fed Index ($) as well as being the second ranked sire, horned or polled, for Net Feed Intake. F181 has excellent skin and hair type which he has passed onto his progeny at Braelyn along with good structure and carcase qualities. He has been joined by AI to some of our best cows, producing current sire Braelyn Unique K186 as well as some quality heifers.
WLB Global 72M 50S (AI Sire)
WLB Global has been used as an AI sire in our herd. He has a really strong set of EBV figures as well as the phenotypic structure and volume which works well in any grass or grain fed production system. His sons and grandsons have been particularly successful in his home country, Canada, and he is a real outcross to most Australian herds.
