Annual Bull Sale - Saturday 24th June 2017

OUR ANNUAL ON PROPERTY BULL SALE this year will be held on SATURDAY 24TH JUNE 2017 AT 1PM  at Coldawinda, Tenterfield. 40 stud HBR 2 yo bulls will sell. A great selection of heavy muscled high yielding carcase bulls sired by proven performers- EXAR Upshot, Connealy Earnan and Basin Excitement, with new bulls including the growth and tenderness sire Jindra Double Vision and the Australian bred calving ease and marbling sire Rennylea Edmund whose progeny have been topping sales around the country. We also offer the first sons of our own all round performer the Carabar Docklands brother Carabar Wheelwright H215 (by the Kansas Angus owned AI sire The Grange Wheelwright). Docklands progeny have been performing very well and we are very  impressed with the phenotype and balanced performance profile of the H215 progeny. We also offer a selection of outstanding progeny of our homebred sires, Alumy Creek Gin and Tonic G12 and Alumy Creek Final Product H16, both B+ butt profile easy doing calving ease and carcase bulls that bring together all the traits we strive to combine over 30 years of selection- calving ease, high muscle and heavy yields in thick well muscled easy doing cattle that perform on grass or in the feedlot.

2017 Bull Sale Catalogue is available as a PDF file click to the Right, or for issuu flipping book download and online at the Angus Australia website. Contact us if you wish to be have a hard copy catalogue mailed out to you and we will be in touch.  To view individual sale bull photo and pedigree/ EBVs please scroll down the page.

 



 

The bulls are available for inspection prior to the sale day on OUR OPEN DAY Saturday 17th June 2017 from 10am- 2pm or by appointment. Contact us or the agents to organise a time to view them. The bulls are displayed in large grassed pens so you can easily make your inspections and selections with plenty of room to walk the bulls or look at their feet. We select our bulls for a thin skinned, fine hair coat - what you see on sale day is what you get. Aside from calving ease and growth, the bulls have very strong carcase EBVs coupled with a great quiet temperament.

We sell before the prices escalate with the bull selling season, giving our clients value buying for high quality heavy muscled bulls. If you are chasing low birth wt calving ease bulls for your heifers, the majority of our bulls will do that plus deliver a quality calf with the genetic capacity to grow well and weigh heavy at weaning. We have plenty of bulls to suit your cows too. Our early sale allows producers to take their bulls home and settle them in well before the joining season and prior to the last minute buying of the spring bull sales frenzy. Our clients always comment on how our buls do not fall away when taken home to the paddock- they hold or improve their condition and are a pleasure to work with having nice quiet temperaments and respecting fences, dogs and people.

Our annual bull sale provides producers with the opportunity to select bulls that have been run under commercial conditions. We provide plenty of top of the range quality angus outcross genetics at very good value. 

We use EBVs as a balanced selection tool but not as the sole basis. We do not breed based only on $ Indexes that are not relevant to most producer's herds. Having a live calf, that grows and finishes quickly is the main profit driver for most producers. Low birthweights coupled with high 200 and 400 day weights and added muscle are what producers get paid for in the saleyard and on the hooks. 

Particularly as you head north, added muscling (EMA) and positive fats for easy finishing, flexible market options and females that can breed back quickly are important traits. Increased marbling and IMF can also be a driver but most cattle are not paid a premium by long fed feedlots for this. Our cattle will perform well in the longfed feedlot and we appreciate this is a niche market in the Australian beef industry. The majority of cattle fed spend on average 50-120 days in a feedlot so for most of our clients the Heavy Grassfed $ Index, Domestic $ Index and Angus Breeding $ Index are actually more relevant to their profitability and sustainability.

Again this year the sale bulls are all tested with the Zoetis HDi50K DNA genetic worth MVP predictions and have been parentage verified. The bulls have outstanding MVPs which Zoetis reported as an 'elite cohort'of bulls'  with impressive results across the whole group. 

Many of the bulls delivered top 1-9% results for the traits we have selected on for years- Calving Ease, Adjusted Daily Gain, Growth for 200D and 400D Wt, EMA, Carcase Wt, Yield and Tenderness. These breed ranking results are against all of the Genetic testing done on Angus cattle in Australia/ NZ rather than a single year cohort. Great to confirm our bulls carry the genes to perform, even though our environment may not  always allow them to express their full potential. Our bulls are presented in strong paddock condition, ready to go out and work well for you.

A complimentary lunch and tea and coffee is provided on the day. We know Tenterfield can be very cold in winter so make sure you bring an extra coat just in case. Agents for the Sale are Matt Grayson 0419 686 540 George and Furhman Warwick, Qld and Steve Alford 0428 100 328 Alford and Duff, Tenterfield, NSW.

Our 2017 Bull Sale Preview is coming soon.
