We pride ourselves on the quality of our females, with heifers required to calve at 22-24 mths of age and produce a sappy calf every year after.

Gemstone

At nine years of age, Monterey Gemstone S22, a Majestic Lad daughter, defeated far younger females to win Senior Champion Murray Grey Female at the 2006 Perth Royal Show. Gemstone displayed flawless structural soundness and a magnificent udder, in spite of her advanced years. Gemstone was also shown as a heifer in Perth in 1998, where she won Junior & Grand Champion Female Murray Grey.

Tribute to Syndicate

Going through our herd records revealed we still have 5 “L” drop females breeding in the herd. All are still wonderfully sound, have excellent calves at foot, have never missed rearing a calf and are all still here because they have performed. The remarkable similarity is that they are all like peas in a pod and all sired by Orcadia Park Syndicate. Syndicate was purchased for $15,000 for a ¾ share back in 1989 and is still a multi traitleader in the breed for 200 Day Growth, Scrotal, Milk (+9, top 1%) and Carcase Wt.

His dam, O.P. Sapphire 2nd, was Senior and Grand Champion in her year at Melbourne Royal, and was highly regarded in the breed.

He was a sire with great character, and left a legacy of wonderful daughters and sons. We believe the longevity his daughters exhibit is a true testament to the structural correctness and genetic strength they have inherited from Syndicate.
