We purchased Belmore Romeo H66 at the Belmore Inaugural Bull Sale on April 30th 2014. This young bull impressed us with his potential as a heifer bull and also his rich red coat, good top line and placid nature. Andy Withers described him as 'a lovely bull'.
Romeo is by the heifer specialist, Belmore Mikado C308, and out of a first calving heifer. Mikado has not only been a successful heifer bull for the Withers but has also sired some of Belmore's best heifers.
On his maternal sire, Romeo is line bred to super sire, Belmore Jackeroo. His dam is by Jackeroo and his 3rd dam, Trevino Actress 104th, is also the dam of Jackeroo. Jackeroo is presently a trait leader for 400 day weight, Carcase weight, Eye Muscle Area and Retail Beef Yield. He has been a very successful sire in Australia with 400 progeny and also has progeny overseas. At 10 years of age, he is still active in the Belmore herd.
Andy Withers describes the Mikado progeny as having a 'super carcass' and Romeo has excellent carcase figures. With EMA in the top 10% of the breed, he also has above average rib and rump fats.
We believe that Romeo is capable of making a contribution to our main herds. He has above average $ indices and moderate growth figures.
