Congratulations to Chippy Watson and Vova Genetics with their sale topping R300,000 ($24,000 AU), Vova 17117 at the recent Super Beef And Vova Genetics 6th Production Sale, Underberg, South Africa.

The 34-month-old was described as ‘A Tradition son with depth, bone, softness and sleek tropical coat’. Glenlands Tradition (Glenlands K.B. – Glenlands 7385) the sire of Vova 17117 was our former sale topper ($42,500) and was one of five sires involved in the recent annual ‘Straws For A Cause’ Auction with four straws (2 straws/package) here in Australia. 

This colonial and internationally utilized male was purchased by the Donaldson family, Medway Stud, Bogantungan and Vova Genetics, KwaZulu, Natal, South Africa at our 2015 Annual Sale. He oozes volume, depth, thickness and length, with a perfect sheath and his progeny true to type. Beautifully bred, Tradition on sale day (21-months) weighed 858kg and delivered a EMA measurement of 144cm sq. Tradition is a maternal half to the retained female, Vanna and the $16,000 Altitude purchased by the Oasis Stud.
