Following the success achieved by the Galawater herd at the Society’s February sale of Aberdeen-Angus bulls in Stirling in February (Galawater Bentley H495 leading trade at 28,000gns), Messrs J & E Logan, Pirntaton, Galashiels, are pleased to announce the private sale of one of their top 2009 born bull calves to The Moss herd owned by the North Moss Farm Partnership.

The 10 month-old Galawater Gaffer Geronimo J585 has been sold for £15,000 with semen being retained by the Galawater herd for their own use. A product of the ET program at Galawater and sourced from Bova-Gen Ltd, Geronimo is sired by the TC Freedom son, GH Coverboy Eric 110R and out of the G13 Steel daughter, Hoff Gammer SC 400 624.

Geronimo is the heaviest calf ever weaned at Galawater and has a projected 400 day weight of well over 700kg. He sells with a Terminal Index of 34 and a Self Replacing Index of 42.

“We are delighted with the sale of this bull to such a high profile herd as The Moss, but are equally as excited at the prospect of using this very powerful and correct young bull in our own herd. We have had high hopes for him since the day he was born,” explains breeder Jim Logan.

"We at the Moss are very excited to be able to purchase Gaffer Geromino, as soon as we saw him in the pen full of young bulls of a similar age, he stood out and we knew we had to try and buy him. It's not often you find such a powerful bull with as good conformation," adds new owner Kevin Moores.
