A rising 2-year old, Black Pearl 2006 daughter, Wattletop Ann M99, PTIC to Wattletop G188 topped the sale at $24,000 selling to Tamworth stud, Heart Angus.
Stud principal, Chris Paterson and his son Jye, selected the heifer on structural merit matched with well rounded EBVs.
“Good depth of body with an impressive outlook and femininity. She suits our program.”
“She will calve a month before our cows so will fit in well to flush her in spring” added Mr Paterson who admitted to sourcing top end cows to improve the Heart Angus herd.
The Paterson’s also secured Wattletop Barunah N68, a weaner heifer by Franklin G188 for $10,000.
