PBF McMANUS MANSO 113/10 (IVF)
McMANUS a Sire that’s destined to impact the Brahman world. The Bull calves by McManus are strong and have that Sire Type about them; the daughters are of high quality. Their extra length, natural thickness and breed character give them a strong appeal that they’re going to breed on. The McManus daughters will carry and improve many genetic lines into the future.
As babies, McManus progeny have that special look and type about them. Their strong bone structure develops early, the muscle progression is fascinating. The hind quarters are long, deep and square from hip to pin, the muscle expression carries well down into the stifle. And their extra-long heavy muscled tops are a consistent attribute amongst the McManus offspring.
McManus’ ability to produce a high quality eye-appealing calf from a lesser quality cow is sure to dominate. The Proudness, Straight Lines as well as the aforementioned attributes, just set his progeny apart from the rest.
His first crop of daughters was bred Spring 2014. They were bred between 14 – 18 months of age. It was pleasing to see the McManus daughters reaching early maturity and able to be mated at such a young age.
His first calf born was out of a Paddy Boy cow PBF Rosalynn Manso 5/8 – he weighed 37kgs and was one of the prettiest calves I’ve seen. He had good bone, defined breed character and was strong. We named the first bull born McCheeko and he has gotten better and better as he ages. We have retained him as a Sire and bred him to 10 heifers at 18mths.
With such quality progeny at this early stage in a Sires’ breeding life, its surely a confidence booster for the Longer Term Breeding Program for the operation. Sires of McManus breeding quality don’t come along too often. A Sire of this dominance will last in a breeding program for many many generations.
