24 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 1, 2011 ROSEDALE ANGUS On property sale 2.00pm Tuesday 12 April 69 BULLS 18-19 months 97 HEIFERS 16 months An outstanding selection of even bulls Well grown large frame Thick and well fleshed Very even line of unjoined heifers Too young to mate last spring Ideal for immediately joining Open day inspection Sunday 10 From 10.30am to 4.00pm at Rosedale 505 Macquarie Road, Campbell Town Contact Ferdie Foster 0408 235 565 Email firstname.lastname@example.org 2012889-110401 Angus Sales Preview Advertising feature Focus on HAVING recovered from years of drought, this year's sale offering from Rosedale highlights the depth and strength of its Angus herd. The 69 bulls catalogued are extremely even, not only in age being born between September 2 and October 16, 2009, but in frame size and weight. They are well grown, frame 6+, well muscled with even, smooth flesh- ing. Rosedale is selecting cattle positive for fat cover- age which will finish on grass and meet the MSA grading standards. ''The unique feature of the Rosedale breeding program is the depth and evenness of its females,'' Rosedale's Ferdie Foster said. ''All calves are reared on their genetic mother, thus proving all their maternal traits, and there has been no introduction of females into the herd for 50 years.'' Rosedale cattle and their progeny are sort after by fatteners, feedlots and the processing works. The 97 heifers offered for VET CHECK: Dr Paul Nilon inspects bulls. Where quality is assured QUALITY assurance and per- formance are key factors at the Cluden Newry stud. Cluden Newry bulls have been vet checked for reproductive soundness by Dr Paul Nilon and, for the first time, independently structurally assessed by Dick Whale, of Independent Breeding and Marketing Service (IBMS). The use of IBMS has provided an additional quality assurance filter, as well as giving buyers help in selecting a bull on wet sale days when conditions make it difficult. To maximise reproductive in- tegrity and health, the bulls have been tested to show they are not BVDV persistently infected (PI) animals. The introduction of just onePIanimaltoaherdcanbea major biosecurity risk, and re- sult in costly reproductive losses. All bulls are vaccinated against BVDV, leptospirosis and vibriosis. ''The bulls offered are either pedigree or tested free of the genetic defects AM, NH and CA,'' said Cluden Newry's Peter Hughes. The performance of the Cluden Newry bulls is underlined by the fact that 92 per cent of the bulls offered are above breed average for the long fed/CAAB index and for the heavy grass fed index. To cater for the large number of heifers retained in the Tas- manian herd this year, as cattle numbers increase on the back of improved seasonal and market conditions, 30 per cent of the bulls offered are below breed average for birth weight. More than 50 per cent of the bulls offered are positive for rump fat, enabling breeders turn- ing off yearlings to meet market specifications. All bulls have been grass reared with a silage supplement when needed. New committee chair BRIAN Stewart, of Thirl- stane, is the new chair- man of Angus Australia's Tasmanian committee. He replaces Ed Archer, of Landfall Angus, who retired after a two-year term. Mr Stewart is a partner in the Dunlop Park Angus Stud and has been an Angus Society member for 25 years. ''I enjoy the challenges of breeding quality live- stock and am optimistic about the future of the beef industry, particu- larly the Angus breed,'' he said. ''We welcome Brian on board and look forward to a successful term ahead,'' said Angus Aust- ralia chief executive Peter Parnell. Mr Parnell and Angus Australia president Brian O'Sullivan will be in the state during the Tasmanian Angus week sales, starting with open days on April 10 and stud sales on April 11 and 12. They will attend a function at Blue Cafe, Inveresk, on April 10 from 6pm, and said they looked forward to meet- ing Angus breeders from around the state.
