The 700 cows offered in this year’s sale are Te Mania Angus bloodlines, or PTIC to Te Mania bulls, and are well recognised for calving ease, fast growth with high fertility and great carcase attributes”.
The sale on Tuesday, March 3rd, will be conducted through AuctionsPlus and is online only, on the eve of the Te Mania Angus Bull Sale. All the cows are independently assessed by AuctionsPlus, and remain on vendor properties until sold.
