Momentous immediately stood out in his contemporary WA nucleus group. I remember the day he walked into the yards at Joanna Plains and we could see we had something special, he was over 100kg heavier than the group average, slick coated with a perfect disposition and structure. His actual scan results were super high for EMA and IMF. Long term clients and astute commercial breeders Col Thexton and Paddy Collins teamed up with Ryan Bros to purchase Momentous for a WA record of $32,000, which is still the WA highest priced Angus bull sold. Since then Momentous has been one of the most widely used AI sires, topping sales across Australia and now has over 3,000 progeny recorded including over 1,000 in our herd. Momentous is unique in many ways in that he is the only sire in the entire Angus breed that is>12 EMA, >5.0 IMF and over +110 on 600D. Momentous carcase results are backed by our own progeny test where we have seen many >7 marble score carcases on the rail with incredible consistency and yield. Momentous marbling has recently gone to >5 IMF off the back of him being the highest MSA Marble Score sire-group with his 10 steer progeny in Cohort 9 of the Angus Sire Benchmarking Program (ASBP). Lawsons Momentous M518 has been the number one selling sire at Genetics Australia since he joined our line up in the Autumn of 2018.
