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.

2019 Bull sale Wednesday 5th June 3pm on farm

This year's bull lineup is one of the best with exciting genetics from some of NZ and Australias leading sires.  The bulls are moderate framed with an emphasis placed on structure , carcass traits , growth and temperament.

Sires represented include breed trait leader for fats Outback Sprys Balance, Hinewaka Conq 21/16, Glendhu Jonah and Sprys on Target.

We have really concentrated on breeding easy doing cattle that can grow quickly and be marketed before their second winter.

To get growth, muscle and good fats is not easy but we believe we have many bulls that fit these attributes.

The sale is again on farm at 456 Te Wharau Road, Masterton.
