The 541 cow family is certainly one of the most dominant at Telpara Hills and in many of the elite US Brangus herds. It is now making a mark here in Australia.  We have purchased several special 541 females and used 541 bulls heavily in our breeding program including Middleman of Brinks 541R264 and CB Hombre 541T3.  

The 541 family at Telpara Hills is derived from 2 females:

- Ms Brinks Milky Way 541E4

- Miss Brinks Heavy Duty 541E7

Telpara Hills Miss Csonka 541D9


Our first 541 female purchased was Miss Brinks KO 541L41, a full sister to New Era and Captain of Brinks from the 541E4 line.  She passes to her progeny the 541 family traits of muscling, fertility and milk.  She has proven herself as an outstanding embryo producer for Telpara Hills, producing some of our top sire prospects as well as our stunning donors Telpara Hills Miss Csonka 541D9 and Telpara Hills Miss Sundance 541D1 and 541D6.  In 2013 her 541L41’s full brother, New Era of Brinks, sold in the 2000 CCR bull sale for US$39,000 and is recognized as a leader for his REA, IMF and scrotal circumference EPDs.

Her dam, 541E4, is a maternal powerhouse of the breed.  She has produced many AI sires and front end sale bulls.  541L41 sire, KO of Brinks, sold for US$49,000 a huge price in his time.  He is well documented to be a leader as a calving ease specialist, IMF and scrotal circumference.  KO daughters work very well with power sires and are the kind to stay in good condition and breed back annually.

Daughters and sons in this line continue to excel at Telpara Hills and we will continue this line far into the future.

TH Miss Lombardi 541D10

The 541 cow family is large for a reason; they usually are outstanding cattle which we want to multiply!

The 541E7 branch of this family traces back to Miss Brinks Heavy Duty 541E7, a Camp Cooley Cow that was purchased by Mound Creek and began their 541 family.

Our 541E7 line began when Telpara Hills purchased 541R2 at the Mound Creek 2007 sale.  She was an extraordinary first-calf heifer with incredible mass and overall dimension. Being the first New Direction 000M24 daughter to be sold, she created a huge interest in the sale ring for genetic power and phenotype.

Tracey Holbert, herd advisor for Mound Creek Brangus and many others, described 541R2 as “the deepest, heaviest ribbed female in the sale with a pretty udder design and plenty of skeletal substance.”  She also balances an incredible set of EPDs, ranking in the top 5% for yearling weight, top 10% weaning weight and total maternal value, and upper 20% for birth weight.

Her maternal sister was considered by many to be the top female in the record-setting 2006 Mound Creek Sale, fetching US$28,000.  Their dam, Miss Brinks Heavy Duty has been a phenomenal foundation donor for Mound Creek, producing sale topping progeny year after year.

Look to 541R2 for powerhouse progeny such as our donor TH Miss Lombardi 541D10 and sire prospect 541D14.

Telpara Hills went on to purchase two more 541 females in this line, this time from the Camp Cooley Ranch dispersal.

Both Ms Brinks Angelo 541P42 is a beautifully balanced female, combining power and performance while still maintaining femininity.  We are very excited and proud to import such a great genetic package to Australia.  She has sold 5 Csonka sired embryos for $1,750 each.

Her daughter 541S7 was one of Ken Hughes’ pick heifers at the dispersal, selling for US$20,000.

Both mother and daughter making their marks on the Telpara Hills herd and are great assets to Australian Brangus.

In only a few years they have risen to the top, breeding the Australian auction record-priced female.  Telpara Hills Miss Something Special 541H14 sold in 2013 for $25,000 to the Dobe family in Bowen.  Also from this line was the outstanding Telpara Hills Miss Csonka 541H5 who sold for $23,000 to the Roberts family.
