Beef producers from across the region will have access to some excellent Angus genetics from a variety of studs at the 61st annual New England Angus Breeders sale.

Fifty-two bulls, 21 females and an embryo package will go under the hammer at the sale, to be held at the Tamworth Regional Livestock Exchange on July 26.

Ten studs – Abbott Angus (Armidale), Bandaroo Angus (Kelvin), Dalwhinne Angus (Orange), Jarowa Angus (Blayney), Mt Hunter Angus (Camden), Trowbridge BBB (Orange), XL Beef (Dungowan), Pondora Angus (Bendemeer), Wongalea Angucs (Duri), and Yamba Angus (Narrandera) – will offer progeny for sale.

Selling agent Chris Paterson said the multi-vendor sale was a showcase of what was on offer in the Angus breed.

“It’s just a good opportunity to see a lot of Angus genetics in the one place, so buyers can get something that’s going to fit their herd,” he said.

Last year a top price of $13,500 was achieved and of the 76 bulls offered, 62 sold for a clearance of 81 per cent and an average of $6669.

The top money was paid by Jack Callinan, “Poitrel”, Ellerston for Heart Lorenzo L8.
