2021 Sire Guide


Welcome to 2021 Welcome to 2021. Now is a time to be greatly optimistic about the prospects of our industry into the future. COVID-19 has reestablished the importance of healthy living - we are producers of one of the most natural, wholesome foods in the world. All the while global populations are growing yet protein production is constrained by land availability, labour resources and natural limitations. What a great time to produce quality protein. The breeding decisions made this year will be critical. The cattle market is at record high prices and the herd rebuild is only just beginning. It is in all likelihood the calves produced in 2021-22 will be much sought after, particularly those produced from quality genetics. The trends in global beef markets are strong. Consumers are increasingly interested in beef derived from an efficient production system particular grass fed. Marbling remains an important component in eating quality and a level of marbling around MS2-4 is a sweet spot in the grass fed market. An efficient product with consistent eating quality will always be in high demand. We are proud to offer the sires in this directory. We believe firmly they represent the top end of their respective breeds and will produce cattle with high genetic merit. Our goal is to Build Better Beef Herds. These sires have been selected to breed commercially relevant progeny ie, high performing steers but equally important will be the legacy of their female progeny. Cows must last in a commercial production environment. To last requires fertility, structural integrity, mothering ability and commercial relevance - we believe the daughters of these sires will do just that. We are delighted to catalogue Milwillah Napa N498 for commercial use. Napa is a rare individual with exceptional carcase shape in a high marbling package and backed by a tremendous maternal cow family. We look forward to welcoming new genetics to the Beefgen offering in 2021 notably in the Angus breed the exciting, Mill Brae Benchmark 9016. Benchmark is one of the most popular young sires in the USA today and is a rare combination of performance with superb maternal strength. We hope to also bring new Hereford genetics to the market in 2021 as discussions are advancing on some exciting sires. Our partnership with Urugen in South America continues to add value to our selection abilities. We are at the forefront in monitoring the performance of sires throughout North & South America to ensure that the foreign genetics we offer are well tested and genuine quality breeding options.

Our best,

Beefgen

THE BEEFGEN FOCUS Our goal is to provide beef genetics that Build Better Beef Herds. We believe that sires that combine phenotype, deep pedigrees of proven genetics, individual performance and breeding values do exist. Our focus is finding these sires and bringing them to the Australian market for Breeders to utilise in their herd progression. Through our partnership with Urugen, one of the largest genetics companies in South America, we assess sires and genetic lines for their merit. Like Australia, much of South America, is a grass based production system therefore deferring our focus away from long fed grain programs and onto cattle that can produce quality beef in a natural environment whilst building a herds maternal legacy. Sires that can do this are our focus.

A proven favourite MATAURI REALITY 839 | MILWILLAH BARUNAH H224 (ELEVATOR E11) There is little question Napa presents as one of the most unique Angus sires in the market today. He is a sire with exceptional carcase shape and body capacity combined with a Marbling EBV of +3.8. In combination with a proven Angus pedigree should make Napa the go to sire for Breeders seeking to increase functionality in their herds. A son of the prolific breeding sire, Matauri Reality 839, Napa represents all of the traits that have made Reality so popular including calving ease, fertility, softness and extra functionality but offers more carcase appeal than his sire. On the dam side, Milwillah Barunah H224 is arguably one of the finest breeding cows in the Angus breed being the dam of Krakatoa (Full Sibling & ABS Sire) and the 2020 Milwillah $44,000 high seller. H224 progeny are stamped with quality and the backing of the renowned Milwillah maternal focus.

SIRE : MATAURI REALITY 839

Napa was purchased in the 2019 Milwillah sale by Premier Angus and, impressed by his development, repurchased by Milwillah in 2020 for $50,000. The first crop of Napa calves are impressive with ‘sleep all night’ calving ease (verified by 500+ Milwillah commercial heifers in 2019), strong growth, an impressive carcase shape and extra body mass. The opportunity arises in 2021 for commercial Breeders to access one of the most in demand Angus sires. Napa combines all the attributes to add value to a commercial breeding program including grass finishing ability and long lasting daughters.
