2018 BULL SALE CATALOGUE NOW ONLINE
posted by: admin-totaranui, 16th May, 2018 1:57pm on the Totaranui website

The upswing of prices has certainly buffered the impacts of some major climatic events around the country. We had a very wet spring, then only 8ml of rain in November and December; that all fell in the first week of November. That’s unusual for us here in Pahiatua where we stock up for growth upwards of 45kgs per day. Needless to say things got short, and after some fortunate January rain the quality became better than most years, so the ewes are in good condition. The cows, now behind the ewes, however, may have a hungry winter without as much tidying up required. The bulls have come through well enough, although they were significantly impacted by the wet then dry that followed. They have showed some compensatory growth and that they can recover after some pressure, true to the breed. We look forward to seeing you here on the day to view the bulls and enjoy our hospitality. Please email us for a catalgue to be mailed out to you, alternatively you can use the online ebook version below. The sale will be on 8 June 2018 at 1:30pm.

HEREFORDS CARVE OUT A PLACE AT FIVE STAR BEEF FEEDLOT
posted by: admin-herefordprime, 7th May, 2018 1:48pm 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.

A product development process that’s taken longer than three years to perfect has paid dividends for family-owned meat wholesaler, Cabernet Foods Ltd.

NAUGHT TO 100 – THE RISE OF MANGAOTEA HEREFORDS
posted by: admin-herefordprime, 7th May, 2018 1:36pm on the Hereford Prime website

Being surrounded by dairy farmers means the priorities in the breeding programme for Jacqueline and Robin Blackwell of Mangaotea Herefords varies slightly from what most would consider traditional. Dairy farming clients expect good clean markings and cosmetics in their bulls and that’s an area the Blackwells are expected to place emphasis on when offering bulls for sale. It’s a delicate balancing act they manage without compromising on quality, while offering bulls with a moderate EBV package and structural soundness.
