Beef Week Open Day at Te Mania AngusPosted on December 16, 2019
Profitability is a trait – and success is heritable.
TOM Gubbins believes profitability should be considered by beef producers as a heritable trait because it gives a more concise target for which to aim.
Te Mania Angus “works very hard” to gather all the genetic information beforehand, collate it and make it available to any interested breeder or producer.
The most essential decision to be made when investing in genetics is, how do you want your genetic selection to increase your profitability?
That decision will influence you regardless of your market – whether you are targeting the supermarket, grassfed trade or are going after the high-marbling, longfed market.
Te Mania Angus has worked for many years – underpinned by the almost 25 years of progeny testing through Team Te Mania – to find and propagate genetic lines with the most commercial potential.
At the Te Mania Angus Beef Week field day on Monday, February 3, people will see bulls on display with all their information available to be read and discussed.
There will be staff on hand to go through the information with anyone who would like to hear how it could help fast-track the genetic performance of their herd.
If you have any questions about the future of your breeding program we will be happy to go through them with you, to tailor make a breeding direction, so all your animal management efforts are being rewarded to their full potential genetically.
Te Mania Angus has a range of maturity patterns in the bulls we produce, so that you can find one that suits your target market and conditions.
If you are in that grassfed and supermarket trade, you need to balance mature size and maturity to your target carcase weight of 280-320kg. You only need cow size to be as big as it needs to be. It is not efficient to be incurring high maintenance costs on genetic lines that you are not utilising.
Where you are targeting the longfed market, with a target carcase weight of 400-450kg, we can deliver those genetics too.With decades of data and breeding to back it up.
The gates are open to all interested breeders, from 9am to 5pm, on 3rd February, to talk to our team about the bulls best suited for your business – both for immediate use in joining programs as well as fitting into the long-term goals of your enterprise. We will be taking tours of the breeding herd, and lunch is provided.
