Bayview Travis L53 was purchased at the 2017 Belmore Invitation Sale at Naracoorte. He was the top priced Bayview and the second top priced bull overall.
A beautiful slick coated dark roan, Travis is described by his breeder, Chris Thompson, as an ‘outstanding sire prospect’ with stud sire potential and ‘tremendous carcase shape and depth of body’. He has a wonderful temperament, top line and feet.
Travis has excellent EBVs with good 400 and 600 day growth plus scrotal size, gestation length, carcase weight and rib/rump fats all in the top 10%. He also has moderate birth weight figures and we used him successfully as a heifer bull in his first season.
We think he is perfectly positioned to produce high performing steers for the top end Thousand Guineas Shorthorn branded beef feedlot market.
Travis presents a genetic outcross for us through his sire Ronelle Park Hurricane.
Used in the Bayview stud herd before purchase, Travis sired quality bulls there. All are in the 2019 Bayview Sales team with the first selling for $6000 before the Naracoorte Sale. Our own Travis calves are looking fabulous.
We are excited about the contribution this bull will make to our herd.
