BREEDING ANGUS BULLS THAT PERFORM


WELCOME We at Isla Angus are equal parts please and proud to present to you this draft of sale bulls for your consideration. The line up includes the entire drop of 23 registered R (2020) bulls, 2 registered S (2021) bulls and 6 very worthy unregistered R bulls. They are all paddock reared and have been on a grazing barley crop since mid-May, with a lupin and hay mix being fed ad lib for the last 30 days. We have always sought to breed functional cattle that are suitable for any market, but particularly the feeder market. Feedback from various feed lot customers tell us that our commercial cattle, that were sired by Isla bulls, perform well. Our breeding strategy has several key points. Particular attention is paid to the birthing indexes as we feel that while growth indexes are also vitally important, your animals can’t express their 600 day potential if they don’t survive day one. We also pay attention to the meat quality indexes, and we were delighted when we won a gold medal at the RAS Beef Challenge for the eating quality of our beef. The judges commented “beautiful looking meat, great colour and marbling, a great piece of beef, hits every attribute beautifully”. That gold medal was on top of several years of blue, silver and bronze placings for live assessment, profitability and growth rate. These are the attributes that you need to breed cattle that will make your operation more productive and profitable. We look forward to seeing you at our sale on 24th August 2022, 11am. - Ambrose & Lisa

DISCLAIMER Every care and attention to detail has been made while putting this catalogue together, however, we cannot guarantee that some mistakes have occurred in the printing process. If there are amendments they will be posted on sale day.

ATTENTION BUYER Animal details included in this catalogue, including but not limited to pedigree, DNA information, Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) and Index values, are based on information provided by the breeder or owner of the animal. Whilst all reasonable care has been taken to ensure that the information provided in this catalogue was correct at the time of publication, Angus Australia will assume no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of the information, nor for the outcome (including consequential loss) of any action taken based on this information.

PARENT VERIFICATION SUFFIXES The suffix displayed at the end of each animal’s name indicates the DNA parentage verification that has been conducted by Angus Australia. PV : both parents have been verified by DNA. SV : the sire has been verified by DNA. DV : the dam has been verified by DNA. # : DNA verification has not been conducted. E : DNA verification has identified that the sire and/or dam may possibly be incorrect, but this cannot be confirmed conclusively.


Understanding The TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation (Tace) WHAT IS THE TRANSTASMAN ANGUS CATTLE EVALUATION? The TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation is the genetic evaluation program adopted by Angus Australia for Angus and Angus influenced beef cattle. The TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation uses Best Linear Unbiased Prediction (BLUP) technology to produce Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) of recorded cattle for a range of important production traits (e.g. weight, carcase, fertility). The TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation is an international genetic evaluation and includes pedigree, performance and genomic information from the Angus Australia and Angus New Zealand databases, along with selected information from the American and Canadian Angus Associations. The TransTasman Angus Cattle Evaluation utilises a range of genetic evaluation software, including the internationally recognised BLUPF90 family of programs, and BREEDPLAN beef genetic evaluation analytical software, as developed by the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU), a joint institute of NSW Agriculture and the University of New England, and Meat and Livestock Australia Limited (MLA).

WHAT IS AN EBV? An animal’s breeding value can be defined as its genetic merit for each trait. While it is not possible to determine an animal’s true breeding value, it is possible to estimate it. These estimates of an animal’s true breeding value are called EBVs (Estimated Breeding Values). EBVs are expressed as the difference between an individual animal’s genetics and a historical genetic level (i.e. group of animals) within the TACE genetic evaluation, and are reported in the units in which the measurements are taken.

USING EBVS TO COMPARE THE GENETICS OF TWO ANIMALS TACE EBVs can be used to estimate the expected difference in the genetics of two animals, with the expected difference equating to half the difference in the EBVs of the animals, all other things being equal (e.g. they are joined to the same animal/s). For example, a bull with a 200 Day Growth EBV of +60 would be expected to produce progeny that are, on average, 10 kg heavier at 200 days of age than a bull with a 200 Day Growth EBV of +40 kg (i.e. 20 kg difference between the sire’s EBVs, then halved as the sire only contributes half the genetics). Or similarly, a bull with an IMF EBV of +3.0 would be expected to produce progeny with on average, 1% more intramuscular fat in a 400 kg carcase than a bull with a IMF EBV of +1.0 (i.e. 2% difference between the sire’s EBVs, then halved as the sire only contributes half the genetics).

USING EBVS TO BENCHMARK AN ANIMAL’S GENETICS WITH THE BREED EBVs can also be used to benchmark an animal’s genetics relative to the genetics of other Angus or Angus infused animals in Australia. To benchmark an animal’s genetics relative to other Angus animals, an animal’s EBV can be compared to the EBV reference tables, which provide: · the breed average EBV · the percentile bands table


The current breed average EBV is listed on the bottom of each page in this publication, while the current EBV reference tables are included at the end of these introductory notes. For easy reference, the percentile band in which an animal’s EBV ranks is also published in association with the EBV.

CONSIDERING ACCURACY

An accuracy value is published with each EBV, and is usually displayed as a percentage value immediately below the EBV. The accuracy value provides an indication of the reliability of the EBV in estimating the animal’s genetics (or true breeding value), and is an indication of the amount of information that has been used in the calculation of the EBV. EBVs with accuracy values below 50% should be considered as preliminary or of low accuracy, 50-74% as of medium accuracy, 75-90% of medium to high accuracy, and 90% or greater as high accuracy.

$

Genetic differences between animals in net profitability per cow Higher selection indexes indicate joined in a typical commercial self replacing herd using Angus greater profitability. bulls. This selection index is not specific to a particular market end-point, but identifies animals that will improve overall net profitability in the majority of commercial, self replacing, grass and grain finishing beef production systems. The $A-L index is similar to the $A index but is modelled on a production system where feed is surplus to requirements for the majority of the year, or the cost of supplying additional feed when animal feed requirements increase is low. While the $A aims to maintain mature cow weight, the $A-L does not aim to limit the increase in mature cow weight as there is minimal cost incurred if the feed maintenance requirements of the female breeding herd increase as a result of selection decisions.

Bringing your new Bull Home When purchasing a bull, care and handling after the sale can be as important as the purchase itself. Looking after your bull well during the Initial stages of his working life may ensure longevity and success within your breeding herd. PURCHASE Temperament is an important characteristic when selecting a bull. Selecting a bull that may be flighty or aggressive will make life difficult for you each time he is handled. Note which bulls continually push to the centre of a mob, run around, or are unreasonably nervous, aggressive or excited. At the sale, note any changes of temperament by individual bulls. Some bulls that are quiet in the yard or paddock may not like the pressure and noise of the auction and become excited. Others that were excited beforehand get much worse in the sale ring and can really perform. Use the yard or paddock behaviour as a guide, rather than the temperament shown in the ring. DELIVERY When transporting your new bull insurance against loss in transit, accidental loss of use, or infertility, is sometimes provided by vendors. Where it is not, it is worth considering. After purchase tips: · When purchasing, ask which health treatments he has received. · Treat and handle him quietly at all times - no dogs, no buzzers. Talk to him and give him time and room to make up his mind. · With more than one bull from different origins, you must be able to separate them on the truck. · Make sure that the truck floor is covered to prevent bulls from slipping. Sand, sawdust or a floor grid will prevent bulls from being damaged by going down in transit. · If you can arrange it, put a few quiet cows or steers on the truck with the bull. Let them down into a yard with the bulls for a while before loading and after unloading. · Unload and reload during the trip as little as possible If necessary, rest with water and feed. Treat bulls kindly your impatience or nervousness is easily transmitted to an animal unfamiliar to you and unsure of his environment. If you use a professional carrier: · Make sure the carrier knows which bulls can be mixed together. · Discuss with the carrier, resting procedures for long trips, expected delivery time, truck · condition and quiet handling. · Give ear tag and brand numbers to the carrier and make sure you have the carrier’s phone number. · If buying bulls from interstate, organise any necessary health tests before leaving and work out if any other requirements must be met before cattle can come into another State. When buying bulls from far away, you may often have to fit in with other delivery arrangements to reduce cost. You should make it clear how you want your bulls handled. ARRIVAL When the bull or bulls arrive home, unload them at the yards into a group of house cows, steers or herd cows. Never jump them from the back of a truck directly into a paddock—it may be the last time you see them. Bulls from different origins should be put into separate yards with other cattle for company.


Bringing your new Bull Home Provide hay and water, then leave them alone until the next morning. The next day, bulls should receive routine health treatments. If they have not been treated before, all bulls should be vaccinated with: · 5-in-1 vaccine; · vibriosis vaccine; · leptospirosis vaccine (if in areas like the Hunter where leptospirosis exists); · three-day sickness vaccine (if in areas where this sickness can cause problems). Give particular attention to preventing new bulls bringing vibriosis into a herd. Vibriosis, a sexually transmitted disease, causes infertility and abortions and is most commonly introduced to a clean herd by an infected bull. These bulls show no signs of the illness. Vaccinated bulls are free from vibriosis, so vaccinating bulls against the disease should be a routine practice. Vaccination involves two injections, 4–6 weeks apart, at the time of introduction, and then a booster shot every year. Complete the vaccinations 4 weeks before joining. Consult with your veterinarian and draw up a policy for treating bulls on arrival and then annually. Bulls should be drenched to prevent introducing worms and, if necessary, should be treated for lice. Plan to give follow-up vaccinations 4–6 weeks later. Leave the bulls in the yards for the next day or two on feed and water to allow them to settle down with other stock for company. A bull’s behaviour will decide how quickly he can be moved out to paddocks. MATING NEW YOUNG BULLS Newly purchased young bulls should not be placed with older herd bulls for multiple-sire joining. The older, dominant bull will not allow the young bulls to work, and will knock them around while keeping them away from the cows. Use new bulls in either single-sire groups or with young bulls their own age. If a number of young bulls are to be used together, run them together for a few weeks before joining starts. They sort out their pecking order quickly and have few problems later. When the young bulls are working, inspect them regularly and closely. MATING NEW YOUNG BULLS Older working bulls also need special care and attention before mating starts. They should be tested or checked every year for physical soundness, testicle tone, and serving capacity or ability. All bulls to be used must be free-moving, active and in good condition. Working bulls may need supplementary feeding before the joining season to bring up condition. DURING MATING · Check bulls at least twice each week for the first 2 months. Get up close to them and watch each bull walk; check for swellings around the sheath and for lameness. · Have a spare bull or bulls available to replace any that break down. Replace any suspect bull immediately. · Rotate bulls in single-sire groups to make sure that any bull infertility is covered. Single-sire joining works well but it has risks. The bulls must be checked regularly and carefully, or the bulls should be rotated every one or two cycles.


Bulls are a large investment for breeding herds and they have a major effect on herd fertility. A little time and attention to make sure they are fit, free from disease and actively working is well worthwhile. NORTHERN AUSTRALIA Although the Angus breed originated in a cooler climate, they can adapt to subtropical regions with many straightbred and cross bred producers finding success in Northern Australia. Some of the following information may also be helpful for new bulls located in more temperate climates. Adaptation They key to Northern success for Angus is that cattle introduced from the Southern regions of Australia be allowed to adapt to their new environment before commencing their working life. If possible, a break of 3 months is advisable before you set your bull to work. Purchase in cooler months Ensure your bulls are in good condition before they do commence their working life. The cooler months are an ideal time to purchase and introduce Angus cattle, allowing them plenty of time to acclimatise. Change of feed source When inducting Angus cattle into your herd consider their source of feed. Have you taken an animal which has been supplemented on grain straight to a dry pasture? Animals should be gradually changed over to their new feed to ensure they do not lose condition. This may involve using supplements which could include dry lick/urea blocks. Managing Cattle Ticks For ticky areas, bulls should be vaccinated prior to transport and given another booster afterwards. Remember males are more susceptible to ticks than females.
