Autumn 2016 Sale We do appreciate your interest in our Autumn Bull & Female sale. Along with our Spring sale, you have the opportunity to tap into breed leading genetics and services offered at Wirruna. A genetic program recognized as one of the most disciplined breeding programs in the country focused on helping commercial beef producers improve their beef herd profitability. The 50 bulls offered in this sale are 18 months old. They are grassfed, independently assessed for fertility and structure and are ready to work in your herds. As usual, this catalogue includes a complete set of performance, fertility and structural information as you have come to expect from Wirruna Poll Herefords. This sale also includes an offering of breeding females, all preg tested in calf To assist you in making your bull selections, a on-line video of sale bulls is available on the Wirruna website (www.wirruna.com) allowing you to preview individual lots and better prepare your selections for sale day. The following graphs included in this catalogue provide a genetic audit of the Wirruna herd. They compare our genetics to the breed as a whole for the last 20 years. These graphs clearly demonstrate the genetic focus of the Wirruna program. You will notice that we do not partake in an EBV race for the highest growing animals, instead we focus on keeping birth weights low (& calving ease high) and pushing early growth from that low base. Likewise we do not like to see high mature cow weights as we need to run low cost, moderately sized cows that do not look and consume grass like draft horses. In a high production system with tight calving periods, large frame cows typically fail to rejoin, particularly when times get tough! Calving ease at Wirruna is very good with all 2014 born calves averaging in the top 20% of the breed. For the early growth traits, Wirruna average in the top 25%. I also refer you to the carcase traits where the calves average in the top 10% for muscling (EMA) and top 5% for marbling (IMF%) which has proven meat quality advantages. Wirruna bulls have long held an advantage in carcase traits. The structural evaluation and scanning for carcase traits has been done by Liam Cardile from Beef Excel. Service ability testing and breeding soundness is undertaken by vets from Holbrook Vet Centre. The Wirruna Poll Hereford herd has for many years led the way in performance recording of Poll Hereford genetics under commercial stress conditions. Over the years, Wirruna has BREEDPLAN recorded over 14,000 cattle with some 9,000 birth weight records. All cattle, including bulls are run in large management groups to enhance the accuracy of the BREEDPLAN data. Wirruna are pleased to have attained a 5 STAR “Completeness of Performance� herd rating which is aimed to give commercial cattleman the confidence that Wirruna genetics are well described and is backed by high quality performance data. We trust you will be able to come and enjoy our sale day. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance in making your selections.

‘5’ STAR BREEDPLAN RECORDER The ‘Completeness of Performance’ herd rating system has recently been introduced to assess the quantity of pedigree and performance information that has been submitted to BREEDPLAN by individual seedstock herds. A simple 1 to 5 scale star rating is calculated based on the proportion of calves and number of performance traits recorded. Herds with a ‘5’ star rating are considered to be gold standard and are recording ‘complete’ performance information.

Quality Beyond Genetics The Wirruna Poll Hereford herd has come a long way since it was founded in 1949. When Richard Locke succeeded his father as principal of the stud in the early 1970’s, he was frustrated by the stud industry’s concentration on showing cattle rather than being aligned to the needs of commercial cattleman. Although Wirruna cattle achieved notable success in the ‘show ring’, the stud made fundamental change in direction in 1972 to Performance Testing focused on selecting a herd based on high performance and high fertility under commercial (grass-fed) stress conditions. Today’s cow herd at Wirruna comprises 700 registered females and is the result of decades of careful trait selection for improved calving ease, milk, muscle, marbling and growth rate, without substantial increases in birth weight and with no compromise to temperament, structural soundness & fertility. With selection for fertility being our highest priority, we continue to screen out animals that do not perform under high stocking rate pressure, well above district average. Every cow that exists in the Wirruna herd does so because she had a live calf at 2 years old (resulting from a 6 week joining) and has continued to raise a live calf through to weaning every year with no exceptions and no favourites. The quality inherent in a Wirruna Bull is a result of being a product of this exceptional cow herd. Our history of over 60 years selection and over 14,000 animals recorded on Group Breedplan give clients confidence that Wirruna Bulls are accurately described and offer reliable and predictable performance that will meet their breeding objectives. All sale bulls are serving ability tested and examined by an independent veterinarian for structural and breeding soundness. Wirruna believes that modern seedstock production goes beyond just good genetics. Seedstock producers must focus on servicing a wide range of client needs that extends well before and well after the point of sale. Wirruna offer an unequalled guarantee, are tested free (MN3) for Johne’s Disease, subscribe to the Seedstock Producers Code of Practise and offer a level of client and back-up service that helped us to be named the 1995 National Seedstock Producer of the Year, and more recently, the 2002 NSW Seedstock Producer of the Year. Quality assurance is important to us and complements our commitment to offering a quality product. We are dedicated to seedstock excellence. The Locke Family

mission statement “Wirruna is dedicated to seedstock excellence. Our ‘Quality Beyond Genetics’ approach is to provide fully described & predictable genetics, genuine back-up service and add-on client services aimed at helping clients to achieve long term beef herd profitability.”

Wirruna Breeding oBjeCtive “Wirruna’s breeding objective is to breed Bulls that are fully described and have the genetic & physical ability to meet market specifications and breeding objectives of the client. Keeping in mind that a balance is required where the female portion of the progeny are required to be highly fertile and efficient.” The major strategies to achieve this objective are listed as follows: ● The Wirruna herd should be a role model for profitable commercial beef herds in southern, higher rainfall zones of Australia. With emphasis on fertility, the cow herd, under high stocking rates will set optimum productivity levels based on per hectare, rather than per head parameters to promote efficient low maintenance cattle. ● Cattle to be run under strict commercial stress conditions with no grain feeding for production. ● Produce cattle of moderate birth weight with optimum growth, carcase quality and muscularity that meet market specifications. ● Performance test to accurately describe growth, carcase and fertility traits. ● Maintain inherent structural soundness and docility. ● Endeavour to reduce the risk of product failure to the Bull buying client. ● Strive to make the bull sale a beginning of a relationship, ........not the end of one.

Helmsman - a Client friendly Buying system An alternative to the traditional stud auctions is the Helmsman buying system. First used at the “Helm View” Sale in March, 1990, the design arose out of concerns that the traditional auction system served the needs of agents and vendors well but neglected the needs of bull buyers, “the customers”. It combines the best features of both the auction system and sale by private treaty: you get first pick and pay market value without any pressure: 1. Prospective buyers need to register prior to the start of the sale, indicating their trading details and whether or not they have been introduced by an agent. Each is given a buyer number. 2. The sale cattle are on display as usual, with all relevant Breedplan, fertility and carcass information present in your catalogue. 3. When the sale commences, all sale lots are on the market simultaneously. You may bid on any lot, regardless of lot number. You can also bid on multiple lots at once. A large, easy-to-read board will be located nearby, displaying lot number, buyer number and bid value (or Reserve Price). This allows you to see at a glance whether your bid still stands or has been overbid. 4. Bids are written on a card and presented to a “runner”, and the board is up-dated. A “Sale Presenter” will announce each bid as it is recorded. 5. You may open bidding on any bull at it’s reserve price and further bids in multiples of the minimum bid amount will be accepted. Minimum bid amounts are: • Bull lots $500 • Individual female lots $250 • Group female lots $50 6. A bid once submitted and recorded cannot be retracted, and the person submitting such bid will be responsible for it until it is overbid. 7. All cattle are for sale simultaneously for a period of 20 minutes. Further bidding will then result in one minute extensions until a full one minute “no bid” period which will conclude the sale. 8. Given the event the duration of the sale extends longer than 1.5 hours, Wirruna Poll Herefords reserve the right to double the minimum bid amount so to bring competing bidders more quickly to their ceiling price and help the sale reach a conclusion.

THE BENEFITS 1. You have more time to consider lodging a bid. You can place genuine bids on any bull of your choice at any time during the sale period. 2. You have the opportunity to re-assess each lot during the sale period and move freely between one lot and another depending on what you could afford without any pressure to make an instant decision. 3. You take home the cattle you want, irrespective of lot order. 4. If you need more than one bull, Helmsman gives you a better chance to average your purchase costs. 5. There is a better opportunity to arrange the shared purchases of a lot if your budget is exceeded.

using performanCe information Wirruna Poll Hereford Stud was a foundation member of the National Beef Recording Scheme in 1972 and has over 14,000 cattle recorded on Breedplan. Breedplan is a performance evaluation program that describes the genetic profile of an animal for a number of commercially important traits. An estimate of the animals ‘breeding value’ is given an EBV (Estimated Breeding Value), a figure that compares the animal to the breed benchmark of zero (0) for each trait. A positive EBV (+) is higher than breed benchmark whilst a negative (-) EBV is lower than the benchmark. The EBVs presented in this catalogue are January 2016 GROUP BREEDPLAN EBV’s and can be directly compared with only January 2016 Group Breedplan EBVs of other Hereford & Poll Hereford herds. To evaluate the performance profile of a bull, its EBVs can be directly compared with the EBVs of other bulls and against the current breed average EBV for each trait as shown below.

The EBV is the best estimate of an animals genetic merit for that trait. Accuracy figures for each EBV are given. This percentage (%) accuracy reflects the likelihood of the EBV changing as further performance information about the animal becomes available. The higher the accuracy figure, the smaller is both the chance and likely magnitude of change. EBVs are calculated for the following traits. CALVING EASE Calving Ease (CE) EBV’s are based on CE scores, birth weight and gestation length information. More positive EBV’s are favourable and indicate easier calving. DIR. Direct calving ease indicates how this animal influences the birth of its progeny. DTRS. Daughters calving ease indicates how well the animal produces daughters that have easier calving. BIRTH Gestation Length GL EBV (days) is based on AI records. Lower (-ve) GL EBV’s indicate easier calving and increased growth after birth. Birth Weight BWT EBV (kg) is based on measured birth weight of animals, adjusted for dam age. The lower the birthweight EBV of a sire, the lighter is the birthweight potential of his progeny and lower the likelihood of a difficult birth. High birthweight is generally associated with increased calving problems in heifers. High birthweight EBV bulls can be used on mature cows without any problems. Wirruna recommend joining heifers to bulls with birthweight EBVs at or below breed average ie. Preferably below EBV +4.3 and positive calving ease EBV’s. Bull lots in this catalogue that are suitable for joining to heifers in typical low dystocia herds are denoted with an ‘H’ symbol. GROWTH 200 Day Growth Indicates weight advantage at 8 to 10 months of age. Place emphasis on this EBV if you are selecting cattle to finish for earlier markets, keeping in mind the maturity pattern required for the trade you are targeting. 400 Day Weight Indicates weight advantage at yearling age. Place emphasis on this EBV if you are producing steers destined for the domestic and/or yearling steer market, plus improve the growth of your yearling heifers to improve conception rates.

600 Day Weight Indicates weight advantage beyond yearling age. Place emphasis on this EBV if you are breeding for the heavy weight end of markets or want to extend the growth potential of your progeny. High EBVs for 600 Day Wt indicates a later maturing sire whose progeny will reach optimum finish at a heavier weight when compared to a lower EBV Bull for that trait. Mature Weight Mature Cow Weight EBV (kg) is an estimate of the genetic difference in cow weight at 5 years of age. Smaller, or more moderate EBV’s are generally more favourable. Wirruna has argued strongly for the development of this EBV, as the race for high growth traits has been to the detriment of retaining fertile, efficient low maintenance cows within the breed. 200 Day Milk MILK EBV (kg) reflects extra calf weight at weaning due to the milking and mothering ability of a bulls daughters. If you wish to improve milk in your female herd, select bulls with well above breed average EBV for this trait. Be aware that there is a trade-off between milking ability and fertility when conditions get tough. If you are selecting a bull as a terminal sire and will not be retaining his daughters then select the best growth bulls within the desired maturity type and disregard the milk EBV. CARCASE Wirruna have used ultrasonic scanning to assess muscle and fat since 1990. Intra-muscular fat (IMF) measurements have been measured since 1998. The carcase EBVs generated are a useful tool that will gain in accuracy and importance as more generations are scanned and analysed. With the increasing emergence of value based marketing of beef, carcase quality & meat yield are major factors influencing boning room profitability and ultimate producer returns. Wirruna is currently placing significant emphasis on carcase traits in sire selection. GROUP BREEDPLAN EBV’S (kgs) (Carcase)

Carcase Weight CWT EBV (kg) estimates the genetic difference in carcase weight at a standard age of 650 days. EMA Eye Muscle Area EBV (cm2) estimates genetic differences in the eye muscle area at the 12th/13th rib site of a 300kg dressed carcase. More positive (+) EBV’s indicate better muscling on animals. Fat Depth Rib and Rump Fat EBV (mm) estimates the genetic differences in fat depth at the 12th/13th rib and P8 site in a 300kg dressed carcase. More positive EBV’s indicate more subcutaneous fat and earlier maturity. Two fat EBV’s are available as there is variation between animals regarding fat depth at the two sites. These EBV’s are important if you want to change the fattening pattern of progeny and fat has a positively influence on fertility rates in heifers. RBY% Retail Beef Yield Percent EBV (%) represents total (boned out) meat yield as a percentage of a 300kg dressed carcase. A more positive EBV indicates higher percentage yield for the 300 kg carcase size. IMF% Intra-muscular Fat Percent EBV (%) is an estimate of the genetic difference in the percentage of intra-muscular fat at the 12th/13th rib site in a 300kg carcase. Depending on market targets, larger more positive values are generally more favourable. Muscle Score Sandy Yeates (formally of NSW Dept of Ag) has shown that well-muscled steers (C, C+, B- to B) attract a greater premium than lesser muscled steers (less than C). In fact, an average premium of $80 was paid for B muscled steers above C muscled. Animals with high muscle score have a higher proportion of their carcases made up with hindquarter cuts and have more even fat distribution requiring less fat trim. As muscle score increases, so too does dressing percentage and carcase yield. However, improving muscularity in the herd is a slow process as extremes must be avoided.

FERTILITY Wirruna bulls are subject to a breeding soundness evaluation (structure and fertility) by independent veterinarians of Holbrook Veterinary Centre. Wirruna only offer bulls that are fertile and structurally sound. As with many genetic traits, fertility cannot be physically seen when inspecting a bull. Consequently, Wirruna measure various facets of fertility to assist clients to make an informed bull choice. FERTILITY INFORMATION (Figures are breed av. calves born 2014) Scrotal Size EBV (cm) +1.7

DC EBV (days) -2.3

Scrotal size (cm) >32 cm

Scrotal Size EBV SS EBV (cm) is an indicator of male fertility in regards to semen quality and quantity. Also positively associated with female fertility, a higher (positive EBV) indicates higher fertility. Days to Calving DC EBV (days) is an indicator of female fertility based on time between the cows first exposure to a bull and when she subsequently calves. Cows that calve late in the season or fail to calve are penalised. This is more useful as a sire trait. Lower (-ve) EBV’s are preferred indicating short days to calving for the sires daughters. Scrotal Size Testicles are examined for firmness, conformation, congenital defects and size. All bulls must have firm testicles that measure at least 32 cm by 18 months of age. Serving Ability All sale bulls are assessed on their ability to physically serve. Wirruna strongly recommend that you get your sires tested annually. The highest risk of bull failure is in his first season. Mating your bull to 80% of his mating potential initially is advised to reduce this risk. The Hereford GROUP BREEDPLAN Estimated Breeding Values contained in this sale Catalogue were compiled by the Agricultural Business Research Institute (ABRI) from data supplied by the breeders. Neither Herefords Australia Ltd nor the ABRI oversee or audit the collection of this data. The EBV’s in this catalogue are January 2016 Group Breedplan. With monthly updates, EBVs can and do change as more data is submitted. This can mean that updated EBVs at sale time may differ to that printed in this catalogue.

Heifer Bulls Dystocia levels in whiteface heifers in the higher rainfall zones of South-east Australia vary considerably, but nevertheless, on average are unacceptably high. As a seedstock producer, we aim to challenge heifers to target around 5% assistance levels and cull accordingly so that we are selecting for calving ease. In a commercial herd, an acceptable level of dystocia (assistance and stillbirths) in a herd varies with each manager. An economic loss becomes a concern above 5% whereas there may not be enough selection pressure for growth and muscling at a level below 5%. There are many factors that influence dystocia levels, time of calving, heifer age, nutrition throughout pregnancy, pelvic area, heifers’ own genetic influence on birth weight and gestation length. Nevertheless, Sires have the dominant influence through birthweight and calf shape. There is more variation in the potential for bulls to cause calving difficulty within breeds than there is between breeds. The practise of using bulls of another breed to mate heifers is likely to be less successful than choosing the right bull with-in the breed that you already have. To reduce calving difficulty in heifers choose a bull with: ● Positive calving ease EBVs - Direct and for the longer term, its daughters. Use bulls with above average calving ease. ● Low Birthweight EBV - itself and back through it’s pedigree. Use bulls with below breed average birthweight (target less than +4.3) ● Correct Shoulder Conformation - Select bulls with narrow sloping shoulders. Some bulls can look tapered from front to back. Bulky shouldered bulls with shoulder blades that protrude and are straighter than 45% should be avoided. The Specialist Heifer Bulls in this catalogue are selected for having the better calving ease characteristics as detailed above, not only in its own performance information, but also in their sire and dam. These particular bulls are for herds who want to significantly improve calving ease in their herds. Generally, there are bulls in this catalogue that are suitable for joining to heifers in typical low dystocia herds. These are denoted with an ‘H’ symbol.

$index Selection indices are now available. Known as Breedobject $Index, these indices are designed to allow balanced selection for various market end-points and breeding objectives. Developed by the Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU) at UNE in Armidale, this technology applies various weightings to the potential 17 EBV’s now available to give a single EBV that reflects the value of an The Index indicates the possible dollars earned per cow animal, to your breeding objective, in dollar terms. They rank extra joined in self replacing herds animals for a single selection goal – profit. targeting a particular market. Generic indexes have been developed for a number of Hereford specific markets of self-replacing herds. These are included in this catalogue and are as follows: ● sUpermarket index - This production system assumes a typical self-replacing herd in temperate Australia targeting short grain-fed or grass-finished steers for the domestic supermarket trade with some marbling requirement. Steers are assumed to be marketed at a liveweight of 450kgs at 17 months of age. ● grass-fed steer index - This production system assumes a typical self-replacing herd in temperate Australia targeting grass-finished steers with some marbling requirement. Steers are assumed to be marketed at a liveweight of 600kgs at 23 months of age. ● grain fed steer index - This production system assumes a typical self-replacing herd in temperate Australia targeting production of steers for 125 day feedlot finishing period for grain fed markets. Steers are assumed to be marketed at a 600 kg liveweight at 20 months. There is a significant premium for marble score of 2 or greater. ● eUropean Union (eU) index - Estimates the genetic differences between animals in net profitability per cow joined for an example commercial herd targeting pasture grown and finished steers for the EU market with no marbling requirement. Steers are assumed marketed at 620 kg live weight (340 kg HSCW and 14 mm P8 fat depth) at 24 months of age. Daughters are retained for breeding.

Indexes allow balanced selection in the true sense of the word – they apportion the amount of selection pressure that needs to be applied for growth, maternal, carcase and fertility traits to give you the most profitable herd over the long term. High indexing animals will rarely have the highest EBV for any single trait. The weightings depend on the economic importance of individual traits and account for antagonisms between traits.

Beef Class struCtural assessment system

Structural problems in cattle have a substantial effect on both the reproductive and growth performance of a beef herd. It is widely recognised that structural problems in sires have detrimental effects on conception rates, calving patterns and thus profitability. Similarly, females with inadequate structural characteristics are more prone to weaning lighter calves or conceiving later in the breeding season than their more functional counterparts. These structural problems are filtered through the supply chain resulting in reduced income for the producer, feedlot and thus reducing the overall productivity of the Australian Beef Industry. Over the past decade, use of the Beef Class Structural Assessment System in the seedstock industry has produced a marked improvement in herds which have shown commitment to using the information appropriately. Through these dedicated breeders, there has been a flow on affect of structural improvement throughout all sectors of the beef cattle industry. Jim Green and Liam Cardile of ‘BEEFXCEL’ service many of the leading seedstock herds in Australia. ‘BEEFXCEL’ is not involved in any genetic marketing or specific breeding advice and therefore has no conflict of interests to influence their stock appraisal. The integrity of the structural data provided by ‘BEEFXCEL’ is recognised throughout the industry as Jim and Liam are fully INDEPENDENT assessors.

HoW to use tHe Beef Class struCtural assessment system WIRRUNA POLL HEREFORDS STRUCTURAL PROGRAM: The 2016 Wirruna Sale Bulls have been independently structurally assessed to maximise the quality of stock on offer. Any animals deemed inadequate have been removed from the sale draft. The Wirruna sale bulls were assessed by Liam Cardile of BEEFXCEL on 4th December 2015. How to use The Beef Class Structural Assessment System The Beef Class Structural Assessment System uses a 1-9 scoring system; • A score of 5 is ideal. (Note: Temperament Score of 1 is preferable). • A score of 4 or 6 shows slight variation from ideal, but this includes most animals. An animal scoring 4 or 6 would be acceptable in any breeding program. • A score of 3 or 7 shows greater variation but would be acceptable in most commercial programs. However, seedstock producers should be vigilant and understand that this score indicates greater variation from ideal. • A score of 2 or 8 are low scoring animals and should be looked closely before purchasing. • A score of 1 or 9 should not be catalogued and are considered culls.

DNA TEST dna testFOR for P pOLLEDNESS olledness The Australian Poll Gene Marker test is used to measure the likelihood that a polled animal only carries the polled gene. Originally developed by the Beef CRC and with emerging DNA technologies, the test has been recently refined with improved accuracy. The test is a very useful tool for those herds who wish to genetically dehorn progeny where the frequency of the horned gene present within the cow herd is high. Generally, strong poll herds do not need to focus on the gene due to the dominance of the poll gene (P) to the horn gene (h). Through the Animal Genetics Laboratory at the University of Queensland (UQ), Wirruna have gene tested sale bulls to identify those that are true polled or homozygous polled (PP) and those that carry the horn gene or heterozygous polled (Ph). All progeny of a PP homozygous polled bull will be polled. Heterozygous polled bulls (Ph), on the other hand, can throw horned progeny if the horn gene is also present in the cow. The test is not 100% accurate as the location of the polled gene has not been precisely identified. The accuracy figure provides a percentage likelihood of the most likely genotype. Note that the accuracy figure does not infer the percentage of polled progeny! If you want to cease dehorning, select PP bulls.
