Mount K2 at 3 years of age (May 2017)
K2’s dam is the famous Texas Undine Z183 recognised as the strongest female line at Texas Angus, producing over 16 stud sires.
K2 is a natural calf, born two weeks early and weighing just 27kg!
K2 was 824kg at 18 months, over 100kg heavier than any other bull in his contemporary group he is one mountain of a bull!
Outstanding temperament combining a true sire’s presence with a kind eye.
K2 is the heir apparent, with added style to his now deceased breed leading sire, KC Haas GPS.
“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
“All K2 calves displayed excellent docility in the recent crush test undertaken here at weaning at Glenoch Angus.”
– Roger Boshammer, Principal, Sandon Glenoch Angus
