Helpful informationHeading into bull buying season, it’s worth spending some time reviewing your breeding objectives – what do you want to achieve from your beef system on your farm?

Beef + Lamb New Zealand's podcast featuring former National Beef Genetics Manager, Max Tweedie, discusses the information contained in the ‘Better Beef Breeding resource booklet.

Have a listen to help develop your understanding of Estimated Breeding Values (EBV’s), identify the traits important to achieving your objectives, compare bulls to breed averages and learn how to visually assess bulls’ sexual and structural soundness.

All this will help you to select the right bulls both on figures and visual assessment.

South Devons also paraded well in the Herds Person Competition. Placing 3rd, two 4ths and a 5th of over 20 handlers. Jr, novice and senior.
Great to have the kids approach breeders asking to use our South Devons. All the handlers that approached knew of the South Devons “Gentle Giants” reputation. They had Hereford, Dairy and Angus back grounds.
