STEAK OF ORIGIN 2018posted by: admin-herefordprime, 2nd Aug, 2018 10:05am on the Hereford Prime website
This year’s bulls on sale at the Totaranui yearling sale offer plenty of choice for everybody. With over a 100 bulls catalogued no one should leave the sale disappointed they have missed out, including those looking for cow bulls. Angus low birth weight bulls are becoming more popular because they are predictable – you can be reassured they have been bred for heifer mating, have been weighed at birth and have good ebv sets for ease of calving. Research suggests that the biggest influence over successful heifer mating is bull selection. It’s not the only factor, but a very good start.
This year’s calving season has been good with kind weather early on, then the return to the normal horizontal rain for a week has bought us back to reality. All the best for the spring, may the lamb and beef prices stay sustainable. We look forward to seeing you on sale day, please feel free to call in to view the bulls anytime.

HEREFORD PRIME PROUD TO SUPPORT NZ YOUNG FARMERSposted by: admin-herefordprime, 2nd Aug, 2018 10:00am on the Hereford Prime website
Increasing market demand for New Zealand beef means Herefords are finding a place in the country’s only commercial feedlot.
Demand for New Zealand grain-fed beef is growing alongside increasing market orders for grass-fed beef, and that means Herefords are carving out a place in the Angus dominated Five Star Beef feedlot.
Five Star Beef feedlot, near Ashburton, is New Zealand’s only commercial feedlot, and this change in the business genetic landscape allows them to supply more beef to both export and domestic markets.
