Reference Sires

Banquet Jupiter J263

We purchased Jupiter J263 at the Banquet 2015 Autumn sale for $40000. We considered him a standout for his head, depth, hindquarter and top line. He has excellent feet and an exceptionally quiet temperament. His EMA of 6.5 is outstanding and was at the time Banquet’s highest EMA scan. Jupiter’s extended pedigree also appealed us as it fits well within our breeding program and demonstrates some legendary NZ sires including Hingaia 469.  Jupiter is Glengowan’s top herd sire and is leaving a line of beautiful females.

Braveheart H46

We purchased this Stern Braveheart son at the Royal Sydney show in 2014 and he brings more of the well- known Stern NZ genetics to Glengowan. His sire, Braveheart needs no introduction and is still a sire in NZ who commands top prices for his excellent phenotype and massive hindquarter. H46 inherited his fleshing ability and quiet temperament.  He has good growth figures to 600 days and he is a very impressive type with plenty of length, depth and muscle as well as the famous NZ thickness we look for.  His female calves show softness and capacity.

Raff Hingaia J347

Son of the breed icon Hingaia 469, this bull has outstanding muscle and an excellent hindquarter with great feet and legs. His progeny demonstrate the best of 469’s strength, softness and practicality combined with some top performance. The females retained in the herd are simply outstanding and the sale bulls offer an exciting opportunity to obtain this rare and highly sought after bloodline.
