Junior on show Successful year KANANGRA Limousin was estab- lished in 2009 by Sheree Lawrence with the purchase of a pure French heifer from the Ashgrove Limousin Stud in South Australia and a scurred apricot Bralco bred cow from the Kay Ridge Limousin Stud at Sheffield. Kanangra is focusing on breeding the traditional French pure apricot Limousin and apricot polled cattle. The stud will be exhibiting a cow and calf at this weekend's Wynyard Show. WATAVIEW Limousin Stud was established in 2009. The stud bought a pure French heifer from the Ashgrove Limousin Stud in South Australia, and a poll apricot cow from the Kay Ridge Limousin Stud at Sheffield. The stud will be exhibiting a junior bull and a cow at the Wynyard Show. WYNVIEW limousin has been breeding traditional apricot Limou- sins since 1995. The stud had a successful year in 2010 with a complete clearance of all bulls to new and repeat buyers. The stud now has an excellent drop of 2010 calves by new poll stud bull Pebbly Range Duc from South Aust- ralia. These calves will be ready for sale in March 2012. The stud will exhibit at the Wynyard Show. Lintwood celebration ON PROPERTY: Bulls set for the Lintwood sale. ANITA and Allan Dixon will hold an open day and sale to celebrate 16 years of breeding Limousin cattle at their Lintwood Stud at Mt Field National Park on March 26. Lintwood is one of the largest registered studs in the state and the only one that has an on-property sale of bulls and fe- males. New Limou- sin/Angus gen- etics will be in- cluded in the sale for the first time. A feature will be a three-in-one unit PTIC to the studs' top-selling bull from last year that sold for $6000. There will be first calving and yearling heifers and a display of 16 year old foundation cows, show champions, future breeders, newly purchased genetics, progeny from last year's top selling bull and some magnificent Limousin/Angus cross bulls and heifers. The open day starts at 10.30am and Helmsman auction at 1pm. Modern day genetics IN THE BLACK: A Badger View Limousin bull BADGER View Limousins operates black and apricot breeding programs. The stud aims to breed polled cattle that perform well and finish early. Principals are very excited by the introduction of new stud sire, Premier Dodge Ram, purchased as a calf on his mother at the Premier Dispersal. This young sire has prefor- med well throught the 2010 show season and they believe he has a lot to offer the Limousin breed. Badger View Limousins are al- ways looking to identify cutting edge genetics that will enable clients to add to the bottom line profitability of their business. Due to the success of bull sales they will only have one bull to offer at the Agfest bull sale -- a great commercial black 19-month-old Limousin bull with good depth, great muscling, a good butt, smooth through the shoulders with excellent feet and legs. Breeding tops HPGs for growth in cattle THE decision by Coles super- markets to sell only beef which has not been treated with Hor- mone Growth Promotants has sparked some lively debate on the mainland where HGPs are widely used in feedlots, says Limousin Australia general manager Alex McDonald. ''About 80 percent of cattle which enter Australian feedlots annually are treated with HGPs and a further 4.5 million doses are used in the grazing sector each year. ''HGPs are used to increase growth rate of grass and grain- fed cattle with a growth rate response of generally between five and 15 per cent and an increase in feed efficiency of about eight per cent. ''However hormonal treat- ment has a negative influence on the tenderness and eating quality of beef with the effect being more pronounced with combination implants than with the single hormone im- plants. ''The effect of treatment with HGPs on the MQ4 eating qual- ity score is incorporated in the Meat Standards Australia grad- ing system with a penalty of 13.6 per cent for the striploin and 13.8 per cent for the cube roll (scotch fillet) for a typical Brit- ish breed, domestic market car- case from an HGP treated ani- mal. ''HGPs have been banned in Tasmania for many years and beef which is exported to the European Union from the mainland must be HGP free. The new ''Angus Natural'' beef brand is also HGP free so production of HGP free beef in Australia is not new'', Mr McDonald said. He said there was a genetic alternative to HGPs. ''Selection within breeds and crossbreeding programs which combine the strengths of more than one breed plus hybrid vigour can provide much greater gains than are provided by HGPs without the reduction of eating quality . ''Increases in growth rate due to genetic selection within breeds have been substantial in the last 20 years and will continue to be so. ''Breeds such as Limousin can provide large increases in retail beef yields and increased tenderness when used in cross breeding programs. ''The increased retail beef yield provided by Li- mousin exceeds the effect of treatment with HGPs, especially in heifers, and increases rather than de- creases tenderness and eat- ing quality. ''Limousin also has sig- nificant feed efficiency ad- vantages especially when related to the efficiency of producing retail beef. ''Research comparing nine major breeds at Clay Centre in the US has shown that when measured as live weight gained per kilo of feed consumed, Limousin and Hereford were the most efficient. ''However when com- pared on the weight of retail cuts trimmed to 8mm of fat, Limousin was clearly the most ef- ficient being 17 per cent more efficient than Charolais and Gelbvieh, 34 percent more efficient than Angus and 38 percent more efficient than Hereford.'' 19% more high priced cuts, 8% more retail beef yield, 6 to 11% more tenderness ... and no extra feed 2049248-110311 North West Badger View David & Cheryl Jones 2 Victoria Street Sheffield 7306 Ph: (03) 6491 1471 Reo Glyn Dennis & Jill Rockliff Rockliffs Road Sheffield, 7306 Ph: (03) 6491 1171 Kay Ridge Kayla Woodhouse 268 No Where Else Road Sheffield, 7306 Ph: (03) 6491 2088 Vinvella Gemma Furley 2 Smythe Street Sheffield, 7306 Ph: (03) 6491 1503 Waterford Hayley Sheehan 67 Sherwood Road Latrobe 7307 Ph: (03) 6426 2633 Wynview Kevin & Yvonne Lawrence 620 Seabrook Road Mt Hicks 7325 Ph: (03) 6442 1118 Wataview Ricky Lawrence 620 Seabrook Road Mt Hicks 7325 Ph: 0408 059 534 Kanangra Sheree Lawrence 620 Seabrook Road Mt Hicks 7325 Ph: 0439 541 303 West Wind Sue Sutton 192 Village Lane Somerset 7322 Ph: (03) 6435 2848 Simply Red Adele Sutton 323 Fairview Road Redpa 7330 Ph: (03) 6457 1156 North Sillwood John Bell Sillwood Carrick 7291 Ph: (03) 6393 6113 South Lintwood Allan & Anita Dixon Belchers Road National Park 7140 Ph: (03) 6288 1298 Australian Limousin Breeders Society Ltd -- Tasmanian Members OPEN DAY and SALE Lintwood Limousins Limousin & Limousin/Angus BULLS & FEMALES Saturday, 26th March Belchers Road, Mt.
