Sire: Italia Thor
Dam: Italia Tilly
Vasco is the perfect combination of desirable bloodlines, show winning style and proven sire ability. In 2003 he took all before him winning senior and grand champion bull at both Beef Australia and the Brisbane Royal National Show. Vasco’s fat measurment of 19/11 mm make him an important sire for both commercial and stud.
His progeny display his own calm tempermament, they are correct with softness and have the ability to finish at any age.
We are particularly impressed with Vasco’s daughters who have proven to be outstanding mothers with a great deal of milk.
They perfom both in the showring, including “Cheesecake” the Beef 2009 and Ekka 2008 and 2009 Grand Champion female and under harsh conditions throughout Queensland. Should you need that extra punch and thickness in your cattle, Vasco’s offspring will do it for you.
Vasco is no longer with us however his legacy is that both he and his progeny have an incredible ability to lay down fat even when things are tough. This coupled with his daughter’s maternal traits mean his impact on our herd has been enormous.
