Canadian beef group views Te Mania Angus AI breeding programme

Yesterday, 23 beef producers from around Calgary, Canada, visited Te Mania Angus, Mortlake.

Beginning at the bull selling centre, the group viewed a demonstration of our calf tagging on YouTube, then Tom Gubbins explained many of the aspects of our breeding programme, performance recording techniques and cattle management practices.

The group witnessed the breeding programme in action in the cattle yards, with our heifers undergoing the 2nd round of  Fixed Time AI, CIDR’s out and heat detectors applied.

Lunch in the homestead included Cape Grim eye fillet, local asparagus and salad, before a walk in the garden in the early summer heat.  The high temperatures, a stark difference to what Canada is experiencing with temperatures recorded yesterday of -29 C!!
