New Canadian Sires for 2015

April 2015

Almarlea Speckle Park Stud has imported semen from HS Untapped 3A and JSF Trade Secret 11A into Australia from the Johner Stock Farm Stud in Canada. HS Untapped was Grand Champion Bull at  Canadian Western Agribition show for 2014. He offers current leading genetics out of Canada.

Trade secret offers genetic diversity, his sire comes from the Redneck Ranch Herd and his Dam from Monnery herd. Both of these sires will add muscle to the herd.

We will be  using these Sires as part of bull battery in our A' I and embryo programs in 2015. Please check our semen page for semen availability of these sires.
