OUR BULL SALE OFFERING:
Headlined by Te Mania Neon N1387, Australasia’s highest ranked marbling sire with an IMF of +9.7 (83 per cent accuracy). This is the first time sons of Neon will be offered in Walgett. In Autumn 2023, 6 sons were offered and sold for an average of $17,000.
In the June 2023 TACE run, Te Mania Angus sires once again achieved industry leading results for commercially focused EBVs, $Index figures – and as a result of our disciplined selection focus on marbling Te Mania Neon is followed by Te Mania Qrusade Q1454 (IMF +8.6) and Te Mania Kirby K138 (IMF +8.6) took out 3 of the top 5
These figures are proof of our ongoing commitment to breeding better beef and providing clients with genetics that will deliver the performance you can count on.
It is also our goal to produce faster maturing cattle for efficient beef production in parallel with high, and consistent, meat quality underwritten by our focus on calving ease, growth, fertility and temperament. We are committed to ensuring every animal in the Te Mania Angus herd is independently assessed for structure, with the figures used in calculating EBVs in Angus Breedplan – and both EBVs and raw data figures are included in this catalogue.

Any Te Mania Angus bull that proves to be structurally unsound, infertile or incapable of service is guaranteed for up to three years from date of sale. Under these circumstances Te Mania Angus will:
- Replace the bull with a satisfactory substitute if available, or
- Issue a refund equal to the value remaining*, less salvage value. See below
The guarantee covers the purchase value of the bull, without interest, cost and damages. The guarantee applies only if the bull’s incapacity is not caused by injury or disease contracted since leaving Te Mania.
*The value remaining is calculated on the basis that the value reduces by one third of the purchase price for each year of service from the sale date. A veterinary certificate must be supplied by the purchaser on request.
If any bull purchased does not possess a reasonable fertility, although not totally infertile, any dispute arising shall be settled by an arbitrator appointed by the auctioneers and must be lodged within 12 calendar months from date of sale.
This guarantee is in addition to the normal terms and conditions governing auction sales. We recommend all purchasers discuss injury insurance of their bulls at the sale with Elders or their Agent.
