Making it a rare double opportunity to catapult any program to the industry’s cutting edge.

The bull sale will also be vindication of our family’s unshakeable belief in objective measurement in general and traits such as marbling, in particular, helping the Angus breed to dominate the Australian herd and pave the way for the whole industry’s future.

A commitment launched by the late Andrew Gubbins OAM.

It is a fitting acknowledgement of Andrew’s work that this year’s catalogue has 18 sons of Te Mania Kirby K138 – now the highest ranked Angus marbling sire in Australia – among the 183 lots on offer.

Kirby’s intramuscular fat (IMF) EBV is +7.5 – more than three times the breed average – Te Mania Kirby demonstrates balance and length and has equally impressive $Index Values as well.

Kirby’s genetics have been extensively used within our own breeding herd and, in parallel, within the herds of the Team Te Mania progeny program.

Outside this there is only one way to access these next generation genetics – buying one of those sons we have on sale from 12pm at our Reichmans Lane headquarters in Mortlake on March 3.

The genetic formula may be “incredibly complicated” but for producers “it’s simple, feedlotters and processors pay premiums for animals they can predict will marble better than others; so marbling genes in your herd will increase an individual animal’s value.
The frenzy of the bull market the beef industry has been living through for the past 18 months won’t last forever.

If bull markets don’t last, bulls do – “proven, cutting-edge genetics are the failsafe for any beef enterprise.

There has never been a better time to invest in quality genetics that will deliver commercial beef producers market opportunities when the market inevitably falls.

In a red-hot market such as today, it is easy to sell stock at a premium price.

When prices do fall, that top quality genetics – such as Te Mania Angus – and industry-leading genetics, purpose built for the genetic improvement of cattle, will elevate the commercial seller to achieve a premium price for their stock.

Especially when the brand behind the genetics already has strong networks in the feedlot, processing and retail sector, because they are the genetics the supermarket and processor buyers will be hunting out.

The latest Te Mania Angus bloodlines have been proven to excel through backgrounding and feedlots and are in demand from high quality restaurants.

With our focus on all commercial traits – calving ease, growth, fertility, structure, docility and carcase traits – they are ideal for building strong breeding herds.

Selecting the right genetics for your herd and increasing profitability has never been more important than in the current market; where high quality Angus cattle continue to attract premium prices.

At Te Mania Angus we are in the business of the genetic improvement of cattle; and our progress and all its data are there for anyone and everyone to come and see. The more, and the sooner, our whole industry embraces objective measurement and the massive data behind it, the sooner the Angus breed will reconfirm its status as the number 1 breed in Bos Taurus cattle.

They represent some of Australia’s leading, and most proven, Angus genetics in a sale now a fixture of the breed’s selling season, with bids opening at 11am.
