The Goldrush Continues

After the highly successful Adelaide show we embarked on the trip to the Melbourne show and it was the first time we had been back since the World Congress.

With only 5 head making the trip, consisting of 1 bull, 3 heifers and a cow and calf, the team was much smaller than Adelaide but the success continued. Woonallee Goldrush (P) continued his unbeaten run winning Junior and Grand champion bull and the Supreme exhibit of the breed. Weighing in at 862 kg with 7/6 mm of fat, 129 EMA at 16 months of age he impressed Judge Mr Colin Wright with his extremely sound feet and legs and excellent muscle; “he is a terrific example of the breed and ticked all the boxes for his age” commented Mr Wright.

Also continuing their run of success were Woonallee Irene G01 (P) winning Reserve Junior champion heifer, Woonallee Ashante E208 winning Reserve Senior champion cow and Woonallee Kathie G73 winning the biggest class of the day, the 15-18 month heifer class.

The day was capped off perfectly with us winning the sire’s progeny group by Woonallee BHR Tornado (P), the pair of females with Irene G1 (P) and Ashante E208 and then winning the Breeders group of 3 head. To finish the amazing run we were extremely humbled by winning the most successful exhibitor for the Simmental breed.

2013 Elite Production Sale

We now change our focus to our Elite production sale on the 7th of February, 2013. The sale will feature 45 industry focussed traditional Simmental bulls, with over 20 of these being polled they are sure to impress you on inspection. Also to feature will be 10 black Simmental bulls including the 1st of the imported embryos from Lewis Farms in Canada. These bulls are truly amazing with explosive growth, extremely deep and soft, free moving, sound and the quietest cattle we have ever handled. 10 SimmAngus bulls will also be on offer and these have proven popular for those wanting the best from both worlds.

The females have been a highlight for us over the years and once again we will offer 25 quality females sired by some of our exclusive sires and as always they will give you the opportunity to access some of the very best genetics we have designed over the past 40 years.

We will also offer some exclusive semen packages including, Woonallee BHR Tornado (P) and 3D BLK Full Throttle, this will be the only semen offered in both of these bulls for the next 12 months. Tornado has made his mark as one the most potent sires in the breed today with his progeny dominating shows and sales over the past 12 months. Full Throttle is the new black bull that we selected last year on our tour of Canada; he is a powerful young sire with tremendous depth, softness and style.
