2020 Bull Sale Wednesday 3rd June 3pm on farm sale

With the turmoil surrounding Covoid19 there is an element of the unknown as to what AlertLevel we will be at on June 3rd.

At this stage we are planning on having our normal on farm sale. For this to happen we must be at Alert Level 2 or less. Farming is classed as an essential business and as such farmers will be able to travel between regions to attend sales. There is a responsibility for us to provide a safe environment, with the ability for social distancing, contact tracing and having sanitising products available. If we are still at Alert Level 3 then we will sell our bulls online with Bidr. The details are in our catalogue.

We really hope we can have the sale as normal. We have an exceptional line-up of bulls in the sale. There are 2 new sires represented . Royalla Rembrandt (Aus)  and Hinewaka Gold. Rembrandt is a breed trait leader across 5 traits and is breeding bulls with tremendous thickness, below average BW and amazing growth EBVs. He is a real curve bender! Gold is breeding moderate framed cattle with very good growth, great temperaments and real barrel of body.


Check out our Facebook page for videos of the top 10 Lots and also our E Book Catalogue of all our bulls.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our sale on June 3rd


2019 Sale Success

This year's Bull sale on the 5th of June was very successful with a good clearance of bulls with an average price of $8312. The quality bulls were sought after with a top price paid for Lot 3 Hinewaka Balance 49/17 of $23,500. Malcom Helm from Rough Ridge Shorthorn Stud was the successful bidder.

Thank you to all purcahsers for their support and belief in our programme. It was one of our best line-ups of bulls we have offered for sale and we believe that the breed is going from strength to strength. Commercial farmers are rediscovering the power of shorthorns in their breeding programmes to maximise hybrid vigour and gaining the maternal attributes and carcass attributes the breed is reknowned for.
