Inaugural online bull sale
September 1st, 2021
Gippsland PERFORMANCE Herefords
‘To sell young Hereford bulls with structural soundness and above average genetic merit.’
The concept for a performance based bull sale was first considered when five like minded Gippsland Hereford breeders met over a cup of coffee to discuss their breeding programs and breeding objectives and how they proposed to promote their Hereford Studs and sell their cattle, particularly their bulls, into the future.
Point of Difference
Interestingly they were all long time supporters of BREEDPLAN and the various technologies and science available to the stud cattle industry to support them in their breeding decisions and pursuing their breeding objectives.
It was considered important to have a point of difference and they therefore decided on the concept of having a performance based online bull sale.
Conditions of Entry
Conditions of entry were set to ensure each lot was structurally sound and fertile, not carrying any known adverse genetic conditions or Pestivirus, be sire verified and above average for various BREEDPLAN EBV’s, Indexes and the traits they considered were the profit drivers for the beef industry. They are confident the genetic merit of each lot will offer purchasers the prospect of genetic gain within their herds to meet their breeding objectives.
