TWELVE Charolais bulls from four well known WA studs have been involved in this year's Vasse Feed Efficiency Trials run by Agwest and will be sold at the Vasse field day on May, 2.
Frank Lambert's Token stud has had six bulls running in the trial and is offering them all for sale.
The Token bulls are sired by a number of top sires, which have produced successful progeny for a number of Charolais breeders in WA.
Sires include RGP Eureka, Culham Nobel Prize, Airlie Quorn and Rosedale Rangler.
After a successful sale in Sydney Kevin and Robin Yost, Liberty stud, Wooroloo, will offer their three young Charolais bulls for sale, two of them are quality poll bulls.
The first Liberty V7E a poll bull is sired by Keys Polled Fusion, who also sired the Liberty heifer which sold for $4750 at this year's Sydney Easter show.
Liberty's second poll bull Liberty V5E is sired by BCR Polled Unlimited and his dam produced the grand champion carcase at the Perth Royal show a few years ago.
Liberty V8E is the third bull to be offered by Liberty and he is a full French bull sired by Coat Lezard.
His dam was sold by the stud at the Beef 2000 in Rockhampton, Qld, for $16000.
The Wooroloo based Downunder stud of Rob and Lesley Millner will offer two bulls at the Vasse sale including Downunder V21F, a full French bull by Aga Khan and Downunder V38E a poll bull who comes from strong bloodlines.
Downunder V38E is sired by RGP Eureka and out of Culham Nobel Prize daugter.
RGP Eureka produced this year's Wagin Woolorama interbreed champion and the 2nd top priced bull at the 2000 Topline Sydney Charolais sale and Culham Nobel Prize has produced several junior champions at WA shows.
The Ferguson family's Willow Tree stud, Toodyay, will offer one bull in the Vasse sale Willow Tree V4E who is sired by Downunder Settler.
Downunder Settler was bought by the Willow Tree stud as a calf at the 1998 Downunder on-property sale.
