The husband and wife team, who missed last year’s show are back on the show circuit with a vengeance, after the same bull claimed grand champion interbreed in Sydney in April.
Mr Iseppi said he now had plans to take 23 month old GK 26 Federer F23 to Melbourne next month and pull off an extraordinary trifecta of another Royal Show tricolour.
“This is definitely one of the biggest wins you can have in Australia,” Mr Iseppi said.
“To have the grand champion bull is just amazing, but the interbreed pair is a real bonus words can’t describe.”
The bull’s win had further special significance for the young stud cattle breeders, with Federer by Canadian bull Mulberry and out of the first Red Angus cow they purchased to establish their modestly sized GK Red Angus stud.
GK Red Angus currently runs about 40 stud breeders as well as commercial females, some of which are in calf to Federer through natural matings.
“We wanted to get him out to work and knock him around a bit before we brought him to Brisbane,” Mr Iseppi said.
The strategy has proved something of a masterstroke.
Blessed with superb genetics and the name of a proven champion, Federer is the Iseppis most decorated and highly profitable bull, with interest in his semen soaring since his Sydney win.
He said the stud had plans to further market Federer’s semen to capitalise on his rapidly expanding reputation.
Mr Iseppi said their grand champion Red Angus female, GK Red Ruby F4, 44 months, would join Federer in Melbourne, although Mr Iseppi conceded they had plans for Federer to remain in the limelight until next year.
“At this stage we will take him right through to the Sydney Show next year. He’s just too good a bull.”
