Herd Sires

Approximately 50 sires are utilised annually across the Dunlop family properties, so as you can imagine, hundreds of bulls have been used from a wide range of suppliers over the years.

Some of these studs include:
Yarrawonga,Waco, Rosevale, Eidsvold Station, Dangarfield, Glenn Oaks, Glenview, Hardigreen Park, Greenup, Wave Hill, Warenda, Balgree, Cardona, Moongana, Oakdale, Dundee, Kendara, Gyranda, Cooinda, Ibrox Park, Warrillee, Santa Park, Diamond H, Strathmore, Drensmaine, Tyndale.

Over the decades we have purchased over 50 bulls from some of these individual studs.

Unfortunately we do not photographs of many of the sires, we have included a few of the ones we do have.

Yarrawonga Merchant (P)

Yarrawonga Merchant (P)

Purchased for $30,000. He has produced many quality sons, selling to a top of $22,500 with six selling for greater than $15,000.

While now deceased, his legacy lives on with many valued females still breeding.

His greatest attributes were his growth, doing ability, fine skin, and above average scrotal.


Yarrawonga Yardstick (P)

Yarrawonga-Yardstick-(P)We were surprised to purchase this bull for only $10,500 this supported by the fact that we were offered considerably more for him not long after his purchase.

While we were looking to introduce more poll genetics into our herd, we were not willing to sacrifice growth, bone or looseness of skin. Yardstick (P) has all of these. He also has an exceptional temperament. We thought enough of him to single sire him.

There are many bulls that cost much more are not afforded this privilege and reside in the multiple sire paddocks.


Dunlop Highlander

The gentle giant. A son of the well credentialed Waco Landlord (P). At just under 2 years of age he weighed in at 943kg with an EMA of 134.

An incredibly quiet bull who carries a massive amount of beef in his hindquarter. He has the desirable quality of both high muscle and high fat. All this stands on heavy bone.


Dunlop Fonzarella (P)

Dunlop-Fonzarella-(P)Fonz is a son of the well performed Yarrawonga Merchant (P). He was retained for his poll genetics, tidy sheath and excellent temperament.

His greatest asset however, would have to be his softness and ability to lay down fat easily.

Fonzarella’s sons have sold to $9,000.


Hardigreen Park Landmark

Hardigreen-Park-LandmarkPurchased at the Santa Central sale for $10,000, a bull that we thought we would have to pay much more for.

A massive deep bodied son of Warenda Rolex.

At 3 years of age he weighed in at 1212kg with a 45cm scrotum and a 141 EMA with 18mm rump fat.

His scale and softness are two of his greatest qualities.


Hardigreen Park Kudos (P)

Hardigreen-Park-Kudos-(P)A deep bodied poll son of Kelly-Wallah Dolicus (P) who was purchased for $21,000.

Unfortunately he died prematurely. His top selling son went to the Graylyn Stud.

We do have several quality daughters in the herd, a number of which are due to calve to A.I. sires this spring.


Dunlop Elephant (P)
