Thursday, 30th March 2017 – Pathfinder Sale Complex, Tivers Rd
With the Naracoorte Sale having moved to the Pathfinder Complex in 2015 to become an Unled Sale it has allowed us to run all our bulls as one contemporary group and only separate the bulls we offer for sale in the last few weeks leading up to the Sale. It gave us a bit better picture as to how they run as a group as we would normally be breaking them in a few months before but in reality they are a fairly even line throughout.
The muscle content and fat cover on the bulls are always good when we scan them in October which we think is indicative of our breeding program.
The Shorthorn breed is gaining back momentum and with the release of a Branded Product, Thousand Guineas, and the interest in Shorthorn genetics by processors it is an opportune time to put these types into your breeding program.

Thank you to all buyers and underbidders for supporting the Sale in 2017.
