elcome to our 2012 beef catalogue

E have travelled around the world and around Australia to bring you, the beef producer the best and most well researched product available. With the introduction of a number of new bulls from the United States, Australia and New Zealand and our current crop of bulls, we feel we have the highest type, best structured, highest growth and biggest numbered bulls on the market. All our bulls are closely scrutinised for phenotype, temperament, pedigree and structure. We don’t recommend these bulls because someone sitting at a desk trying to reach sales targets tells us to, we recommend them because we passionately believe they can and will make a difference to both stud and commercial cattle operations. The bulls are all personally inspected by myself, Chad Ellingson in the US and Lindsay Jones in New Zealand. “Cattlemen choosing bulls for cattlemen, not salesmen behind a desk.�

Outlier was destined to be a standout sire since his birth. Born at 33kg to a superb first calving heifer with excellent udder quality and went on to outweigh his entire contemporary group at weaning by a massive 50kg. He has an excellent fertility and maternal background and measured 40cm scrotal at 12 months. Used as a yearling he successfully mated 40 first calving heifers with excellent libido.

Synchronisation Programs: We

are at the absolute cutting edge of synchronised breeding programs in this country. Many large programs conducted through the years, have proved the consistency of the protocols we have been using and modifying as we go along. While the success of any program is usually measured in percentages, I think we also need to be mindful of just how user friendly we can make it, to not only the cattle owners but also the staff involved in running it. We are only too happy to help anyone wanting advice on their individual breeding programs.

Semen Sales: We have a bull team

available to assist a wide range of cattle operations in their quest to be more profitable and in simple terms, to breed better cattle that all people involved can be proud of. All bulls have been extensively researched and physically inspected and while we don’t pretend to be perfect, we are certainly proud of the amount of work put into each bull’s selection. We feel each bull has a purpose and can and will add something to each individual breeding program.

Ultrasound Pregnancy Testing: Now over forty thousand pregnancy tests this per year, I would

like to think we know what we are doing. Ultrasound is still the most cost effective and highly accurate way of diagnosing pregnancy status available. Producers should still be aware that ultrasound is only as good as the person using it and only a trained, experienced technician should be used. Next time you enquire about someone to pregnancy test your herd, ask the operator where they were trained and by whom. If the answer is not satisfactory, as in they learnt it from a book, then don’t use them. If you have any queries on qualified technicians please feel free to ask.

Freeze Branding: While freeze branding would have to rate as ‘not my favorite job’, it does have a

very enjoyable upside. That is talking to cattle producers on all subjects great and small that have to do with the cattle industry. Due to the time consuming nature of branding, it is one of the few ways you can get a breeder to stand still all day and talk about his or her cattle. You also get a close up and personal look at most of the current crop of AI sires being used; this certainly makes a day’s branding a very worthwhile experience. We like to think we do a good job of it as well.

Merchandise: We are now one of the larger suppliers of CIDRs to the beef industry. Please feel free to enquire about AI merchandise prices.

this is really important for long term productivity. But often mineral supplementation can be helpful while the on-going improvements are being implemented in soil and pasture management. Mineral supplementation can actually add to your soil mineral levels by spreading additional minerals through the manure.
