The second annual Southern Downs Angus Bull Sale will be held at the Warwick Saleyards next Saturday 19 August, from 1pm.
The sale combines vendors Clunes Crossing, Lode Creek and DFS Angus Studs, with Andrew Bryant of Clunes Crossing Angus saying that with the demise of the Sunstate Angus Bull Sale “we believe this sale offers breeders the best opportunity to access quality Angus bulls sired by some of the best Australian and USA sires”.
“All three studs have similar breeding philosophies and focus on producing the best genetic package to commercial and stud breeders looking for fertile, structurally sound progeny with high growth and excellent carcass qualities,” Andrew said.
“Replacement heifer production is prioritised and when strategic joining of genetics has this as a primary focus, the bull progeny benefit and ultimately so do the astute buyers of the carefully prepared bulls offered in the Southern Downs Angus Bull Sale.
“We intend to hold the sale annually so you can rely on accessing top genetics next year and beyond.
“Your commercial outcomes are taken seriously and we will continue to seek the very best genetics from Australia and overseas for AI programs to offer genetic improvement year on year.”
Andrew said the bulls being presented at this year’s sale range in age from between 18 months and 30 months and will also included four yearlings from Lode Creek.
“We are very happy with the preparation of the bulls and how they have developed,” he said.
“They will not be rolling fat and unfit for work or melt when they are taken home.
“We aim to present bulls with a fat score of around four.
“All bulls come with a vet certificate including semen testing.
“The line-up of bulls has some outstanding stud sire prospects and are well above the breed average when it comes to structure, phenotype, performance, indexes and temperament.
“The bulls are bred locally which gives some assurance that there will be no excessive travel to get them home and no dramatic climate or environment shock for the bulls which are bred locally to excel in local conditions.”
“All buyers wanting to view the bulls are welcome to attend our open day at Clunes Crossing, Dalveen or at Lode Creek Angus on property the week prior to the sale on 12 and 13 August, from 10am to 3pm.”
