WHAT’S IN A TREND, TOTARANUI'S ANGUS PURE INDEX
posted by: daimien, 2nd Sep, 2019 11:03am on the Totaranui website

A trend is important for a stud breeder, a commercial breeder and a finisher, as we’re all in it for one thing, to pay the bills and have some profit on the other side. We want to know where the genetics are taking us in relation to where the market is going. A commercial breeder is not a lot different to a stud breeder, the sire selection decisions he or she makes impacts on their herd for generations – the daughters from a bull purchase will be in the herd for potentially 10 years – and their daughters, and so on. To make a change in one’s program, therefore, takes time, and quite some consideration in the genetics to use.  
2019 YEARLING BULL SALE CATALOGUE NOW ONLINE
posted by: admin-totaranui, 2nd Sep, 2019 11:00am on the Totaranui 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. View Sale Catalogue
