He is the son of the famous Lochaber-Braes Diplomat (featured above), a multi-trait leader in six traits. While Diplomat’s Ballet is not quite as tall as his father, he is every bit as long and muscular. Born at 80 lbs., he passes on this birth weight and ease of calving. He adds thickness and improves milk in his calves. Diplomat’s Ballet also adds style to his calves with a pretty head, straight top line, and good feet and legs. We were lucky enough to see Diplomat’s Ballet in person when he was ten years old. He was still in great shape and was being used as a herd sire on the salt flats of Utah for the Rolfe Livestock Co.

Sire: Temar Lotus L62
Dam: ACJ Trafalgar Tanya 4

View Pedigree and EPDs

WCC Freightliner is a beautifully balanced Australian Temar Lotus son desirable for his size, muscling, style and performance. He was the Canadian Murray Grey Champion bull in 2002. This bull has excellent milk Breedplan numbers and is a proven producer of quality progeny. He has 37 progeny on Breedplan including 8 daughters. His daughters are good-sized, productive, females who demonstrate outstanding maternal traits. We have used two of his daughters, Eagles Run Babys Breath and Eagles Run Trillium 276R as embryo donors. His sons are real eye-catching with thickness, depth and balanced conformation. We have retained many of his daughters due to their value in the cow herd for volume, structure, milking ability and temperament. Unfortunately, we lost Freightliner at 4 years of age, so semen is all that is left of this exceptional sire. Semen quantities are extremely limited.

Lindale Hobo is an excellent black Murray Grey bull with solid Australian bloodlines. This bull produces exceptional females who flesh easily, have outstanding udder structure, and have good capacity and length. We use three of his daughters as embryo donors, Eagles Run Innocence, Eagles Run Sweet Dream, and Eagles Run Everlasting. Hobo is great on heifers and a good choice for cows. He has a desirable blend of growth, milk, carcass and marbling combined with a light birth weight. We owned and used Hobo for three years before selling him to a commercial operation where he was valued for his fertility, ability to cover many females and low-birthweight calves. Hobo has a docile, quiet temperament which his progeny have inherited. One interesting fact we have noticed about many of the Hobo progeny we have worked with over the years is their ability to maintain their flesh in conditions where the other cattle are dropping weight. His Breedplan numbers are based on 66 progeny and 12 producing daughters. This bull is worth a try!
