Photo taken July 2017. We have 14 heifer calves from our spring calving cows, and have therefore decided to offer 5 for general sale. Full photographs and detail pages will be added to the site soon.

Photo taken January 2021. Jilt P028 is sired by Wenmar Major, a tremendous bull sired by the great Crooked Post Stockman. The Jilt family always produce heifers with presence and style that rarely develop into anything other than strong powerful cows and good mothers. P028's mother, J105, owes us nothing and just continues producing heifers with the Jilt family stamp.

Photo taken October 2019. Wenmar Melita Rose M164 has tremendous breeding from her sire Crooked Post Stockman and the great Waukaru Patent's mother Waukaru 12H Melita Rose, a perfect blend of Canadian and US proven performance genetics. M164 has style, temperament and shape as a heifer to develop into a great cow. We await her first calf sired by Wenmar Leandro, a Kamilaroi Meat Packer son.

Photo taken September 2019. Melody L140 has reared us a very strong calf this year. She will be retained with her mother and her full sister Melody N002 to strengthen our Melody female line. Her mother F038 has been reclassified this year as an aged cow as being excellent at EX91. L140 in my opinion is better than her mother, time will tell how she scores as an aged cow. We are hoping for a heifer calf from her soon, to help us rebuild the herd size following our recent move. We have a lot of faith in this strong milky female line, they are a pleasure to work with.

Photo taken early September 2019. Nonpariel F044 is from an exceptional female line, they just produces great heifer calves. Her grandmother was sold rising 8 years to establish a new herd in Ireland. F044's mother was one of my favourites, but she was also sold in 2016 to establish another new herd. F044's has given us another heifer calf again this year, one that we think a lot of and will likely retain her while building up our numbers again. We almost parted with F044 in 2019 but decided to squeeze her into our longer term plans. She had her classification updated again this year and stepped up to the mark achieving EX90 excellent. She is likely to be with us now for the rest of her days.

Photo taken September 2019. Jilt L138 has proven herself as a great first time mother and will no doubt strengthen our Jilt female line. We unfortunately lost her mother in early 2018, so L138 is has a job to do for us here for a few years to come. She has a quiet freindly nature which is a good thing being a very large framed young cow. I just love the Jilt cow family with their strength, size and spirit.

Photo not available. Jilt P031 is sired by Wenmar Major, a tremendous bull sired by the great Crooked Post Stockman. P031's mother L138 is a large framed first calver who has really come up to the mark in developing her mothering nature. She is caring and milky; what more could we ask for! P031 is going to fit right into the Jilt family model, but maybe a little quieter than some.

Photo taken October 2019. Melody F038 is bred from a home bred cow, 006, an exceptional female line. She has already proven her mothering ability and now achieved a classification of EX91. F038 is not the biggest of our cows, but she does a great job on her calves and has added our herd another great heifer calf in 2020. Melody has a very quiet temperament and follows her mother's and grandmother's traits 100%. She is a lady who will see out her days here at Wenmar.

Photo taken early January 2021. Melody P020 is another smart, well developed heifer to add to this tremendous female line. I hope that she takes after her mother F038 who just gets better with age in nature and mothering ability.

Photo taken early September 2019. Nonpariel H079 is one of those females that just grows on you as time goes by. She has a lovely nature and takes after her mother who was one of my favourites. H079 produced her fourth calf this year, another heifer to expand this great family. We were delighted, but not to suprised when she was classified this year to recieve a clasification score of EX91 excellent. The longer she is with us the more I like her.
