Mount K2 Partnership

“Alpine focus on using sires descended from dominant female lines, that are structurally sound and excel for calving ease growth spread, carcase, fertility and temperament – we selected Mount K2 for our 2015 joining because he excels across all of these traits.
We were lucky enough to purchase a sire by the same dam two years ago and look forward to the influence these two bulls, and their damline, will have on our herd in years to come.”


– Alpine Angus manager Chris Oswin

Drove past K2 today and was he standing perfectly so we took this photo. He really looks amazing at the moment. His first son (Texas Mountain Man M010) was sold in July making $16,000 selling to a commercial breeder in Central QLD. K2 is a trait leader for 6 traits including calving ease, gestation, growth and scrotal. An excellent out cross to mainstream genetics. http://abri.une.edu.au/online/cgi-bin/i4.dll?1=22342A3D&2=232F5F&3=56&5=2B3C2B3C3A&6=5D5A59252258202E20&9=505B505E

A lovely K2 heifer about to be weaned. Very excited about his progeny - low birth, plenty of growth, bone and volume with great temperaments and softness.

Have you seen K2's latest ebv's? He is now a trait leader for Calving ease, Gestation, Scrotal and 600 day growth. 153 calves have been analysed and his BW has dropped from +4.1 to +3.5 in the first run. Here is some typical calves by K2.
