The Diamond Bull Sale reconfigures its format RoestonPark Poll Hereford Contact Brett and Amanda Shepherd Phone: (08) 8764 2034 Brett: 0427 742 034 LAST YEAR saw the end of an era for the Diamond Bull Sale with David and Suzanne Bennett of YoHo announcing that they would not be continuing as partners in the sale. This has led to many changes for the remaining three vendors. Andrew and Ross Bennett have decided to build a new venue at Bendulla, 1226 Padthaway Road, Mundulla. The sale will continue there, but in a different format. The sale will be conducted as a Video Auction, reducing the stress on the bulls and infrastructure. A new sale date has been chosen, 10 - The Border Watch Beef Focus 2017 705584 Wednesday, February 22 at 3.00pm which enables breeders travelling from northern areas and interstate to attend all the whitefaced sales in a condensed period and reducing travel. There will be a high quality lineup of 45 bulls which will have the same health status as previous sales. They will be 7-in-1 vaccinated tested negative for Pestivirus and semen tested. Free delivery will be offered within a 150km radius. The Bendulla bulls will be on display at the Beef Field Days and the Wrattenbullie and Roeston Park bulls will be available for inspection at any time by contacting Rod and Brad or Brett. Wrattenbullie will be offering eight bulls this year, with most of these by AI sires which were chosen for their low birthweights, high growth and increased muscling. Elite H297 has three sons in the offering, all displaying high muscle and growth. RNDL26 is the pick of these with a birthweight of 3.7 through to +85 for 600 day weight, 4.4 for EMA and +1 for IMF. Yavenvale Guru, a high profile sire in the breed, has two sons displaying good structure and type. Yalgoo F069 has two very appealing sons, RNDL33 being the pick of these. His Dam, a daughter of Cascade Eldorado, with EBV 5.2 for birth through to +87 for 600 day weight and 3.4 for muscle. This year they were lucky to be able to select nine females from the Suzelle herd. They have bred very well and will add depth to next year’s sale team. The studs are looking forward to the new phase of the Diamond Bull Sale and hope to see you there.
