We first saw CP Tobias 13D as a young bull calf in the late summer of 2016; he was a calf with potential in our view. He had a proven herd sire with an excellent set of Australian EBV’s, a proven dam from a very strong female line, with an excellent set of North American EPD’s, good growth rates, excellent locomotion and a sound structure. Tobias along with another young bull, both showed potential in our view to become future Beef Shorthorn outcross herd sires in the UK and Europe. Tobias’s sire and dam both carry some of the very best of proven Canadian and Australian beef breeding genetics. The object we identified was to use and be able to offer these genetics with proven traits to produce and enhance our own genetics here in the UK.
Prior to concluding an agreement to collect the semen for export into Europe, which is a very costly exercise, we decided to pay a second visit to view the development of the two bulls. We visited Crooked Post late in November 2016, and spent a great deal of time with both bulls shortlisted. Following protracted discussions we made the decision to secure exclusive rights to both bulls in Europe.
This semen is only available through ourselves at Wenmar Beef Shorthorns
The two bulls went into quarantine in the spring of 2017 at the age of around 14 months; both bulls collected very well. The semen collected is very good quality and is now stored here in the UK and available for general sale in limited numbers. In Europe and the UK in particular, a great deal of our gene pool is currently centred around a few particular blood lines, proof of that can be seen and proved by thoroughly investigating the pedigrees of bulls at our premier pedigree bull sales.

Of the hundreds of yearling heifer ultrasound scans that have been collected over the years at Crooked post, Crooked Post Minnie 23Z has indexed the highest for REA and backfat combination, now an absolute powerhouse tank of a cow she raises a good calf every year. Her first calf, Crooked Post Minnie 2B, was a heifer sired by Crooked Post Grissom, kept as a replacement at Crooked Post, this first calver weaned thier heaviest heifer of 2016 season. Second calf is a full brother to Tobias 13D, who sold to a commercial herd in spring 2017. Third calf is Tobias 13D. Forth calf sired by KCSF Red Mercury is being developed as a breeding bull this winter. Predictable good progeny who post big growth figures, are structurally sound with fertility and longevity in the family.
Sire - Yamburgan Tobermorey F090
|Australia Breed Plan EBV Data:||EBV Data|
John Manchee, of MA Beef NSW, Australia states, "Yamburgan Tobermorey F090 has the combination of genetics we have been waiting for and will be valued as a stud sire. We all know the maternal strength of Weebollabolla Theodore but we really admire the carcass attributes of the New Legend cattle and recent carcass data submitted to Breedplan seeing a positive shift in marbling performance. Tobermorey has the maturity pattern, muscle shape, depth and fat distribution in a red, slick coated package."
