The 2024 individual sale bull photo and pedigree/ EBVs are available below.

The bulls are always AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION by appointment on property prior to the sale day. Please contact Colin directly on 0429431900 or the agents to organise a time to view them.

The bulls are displayed in large, grassed pens so you can easily make your inspections and selections with plenty of room to walk the bulls or look at their feet. We select our bulls for a thin skinned, fine hair coat - what you see on sale day is what you get. Aside from calving ease and growth, the bulls have very strong carcase EBVs coupled with a great quiet temperament. If you like shape and growth with your carcass traits be sure to check this year's draft out.

We sell before the prices escalate with the bull selling season, giving our clients value buying for high quality heavy muscled bulls. If you are chasing low birth wt calving ease bulls for your heifers, the majority of our bulls will do that plus deliver a quality calf with the genetic capacity to grow well and weigh heavy at weaning. We have plenty of bulls to suit your cows too. Our early sale allows producers to take their bulls home and settle them in well before the joining season and prior to the last minute buying of the spring bull sales frenzy. Our clients always comment on how our bulls do not fall away when taken home to the paddock- they hold or improve their condition and are a pleasure to work with having nice quiet temperaments and respecting fences, dogs and people.

Our annual bull sale provides producers with the opportunity to select bulls that have been run under commercial conditions. We provide plenty of top of the range quality angus outcross genetics at very good value.

We use EBVs as a balanced selection tool but not as the sole basis. our cattle perform very well across the wide range of selection indexes with great market flexibility. Having a live calf, that grows and finishes quickly is the main profit driver for most producers. Low birth weights, calving ease and short gestation length, coupled with high growth and carcase weights and added muscle are what producers get paid for in the saleyard and on the hooks. Our bulls also provide added net feed efficiency, yield and marbling for added carcass quality. Feed efficiency is the number one profit driver in the feedlot game and being recognised off grass for the added efficiency in your cow herd too.

Particularly as you head north, bigger carcase wts, improved yield with added muscling (EMA) continues to pay with positive fats for easy finishing, flexible market options and females that can breed back quickly are important traits. Increased marbling and IMF is also be a driver for increased carcass quality. Our cattle perform well both on grass and feed in the feedlot for versatile market options for Angus in the Australian beef industry and this reflects in their balanced performance across all $ indexes. Please note that the generalised Angus Selection Index tool has now been broadened to reflect a variety of target markets within the beef industry.

Again this year the sale bulls are all genomic tested and have been parentage verified so you are able to register any calves into the HBR stud without any further testing requirements. It also gives you independent quality assurance and confidence to buy bulls that have the correct sire information.

Many of the bulls delivered top 1-10% results for the traits we have selected on for years. These breed ranking results are against all of the Angus cattle in Australia/ NZ. Great to confirm our bulls carry the genes to perform, even though our environment may not always allow them to express their full potential. Our bulls are presented in strong paddock condition, ready to go out and work well for you.

Refreshments are provided on the day. We know Tenterfield can be very cold in winter so make sure you bring an extra coat just in case.
