Fletcher has made a huge impact on the Romagnola breed. By the Cesare sire, Cougar out of a Carrie Downs Zivkovic daughter he represents one of the most consistent genetic combinations we have produced. He is phenotypically superb and typifies the modern beef producing animal combining weight for age, softness and early maturity into a moderate frame size. His impeccable temperament, clean coat and free moving gait top off an outstanding sire. His progeny perform well in any environment and are suited to a range of target markets. This has made him our most successful semen sire to date (semen no longer available) with commercial semen sold to most corners of Australia for a range of cow herds.
Fletcher completed his show career at Brisbane Ekka in 2013 where he was one of the heaviest bulls on the grounds at 32 months and weighing in at 1152kg. He carried an enormous EMA of 150 cm and had a 9/6 fat measurement. He was sashed Grand Champion Romagnola Bull and went on to be placed in the Top 10 in the Interbreed competition. (6 judges had him in their top 6)
His calves were consistently excellent. They are a rare blend of carcase cattle who are very eye-catching as well. His son “Jimmy Choo” was paraded at Beef 2015 where he was sashed Junior and Grand Champion Bull at just 16 months.
At Beef 2018, Jimmy Choo’s full brother, Louboutin, was sashed Senior Champion Romagnola bull. We have retained “Louie” in the RBG herd.
Fletcher daughters are our very best cows both as mothers and as breeders of quality progeny.
We feel extremely privileged to have a bull of Fletcher’s calibre in our herd. At 13 he will live out his days here in his favourite paddock.
