AC 98452 King Heavenly
He has bred top of the range cows which provide us yearly with sturdy calves. He is a bull which features as one of the strong building blocks in our herd. Two of his daughters excelled at national level by becoming the SA Reserve Grand Champion in 2008 (RCM 0331) and in 2011 RCM 02077 became the SA Grand Champion.
A Reserve SA Senior Champion. A very well balanced bull with a lot of width in his hind quarters, but unfortunately we lost him shortly after his victory. All of his progeny which are still part of our herd just keep on producing at a high standard. He produced exceptional sons, one being RCM 07148, Junior Champion at the Vryburg show in 2010. He is also the Grandfather of Roechama Hertzog, described by Kevin Miles as his favourite bull during the Royal Agricultural Show 2012, here he was Calf Champion.
This was and is probably the best bull which we have ever used. A dark red, medium framed bull with tremendous capacity. This bull had length, strong back and excellent width in his hind quarter. Words are not enough to describe this bull. We sold this majestic bull as a seven year old to Mike Charters in 2010 for R120 000. He is the father of the 2 time Gold Cup Winner Roechama Honey 08168. He also won the father progeny of 4 animals at the 2009 National Show, 2010 Vryburg and Bloemfontein Show and in 2012 at the Vryburg, Bloemfontein and Royal Show.His son RCM 10124 Master was the 2014 Interprovincial Snr Champion and we sold him to Loutjie Campher.His daughter RCM 1082 Victoria won the Gold Cup at Hertzogville and was runner up to the Gold Cup in Bloemfontein 2014.
2008 National Champion and a Gold Cup winner. We bought this bull together with the late Mr Christoff Nel. This was by far the longest bull we have ever seen and together with his length was the tremendous width he had to offer. His first daughters in our herd have started calving and they are very feminine and have exceptional udders, something which we have become extremely strict on as the years have progressed. As a National Champion himself, he also produced a national champion during 2011, our own Roechama Jesse – National Calf Champion 2011. His son RCM 10256 Juke was the 2013 SA Res Jnr Champion, and his daughter RCM 1248 Michelle was the 2014 Interprovincial Jnr and Res Grand Champion.
