Sale shapes up
Bulls ‘presented in working order, not their suit and tie’
RODNEY and Karen Johannesen, of Folkslee Bazadaise and Brangus Stud, Malarga, are holding their third annual property open day and catalogue sale on Saturday, October 27.
The day starts at 9am with 16 bazadaise and four brangus catalogued sale bulls on display as well as eight bazadaise females, which are also catalogued for sale.
In addition to this, the Johannesens will also have a large selection of their stud and commercial cattle on display for visitors.
Mr Johannesen said the day was shaping up to be the best open day yet.
“We will have the first progeny of our poll bazadaise bull Folkslee Frontier on display during the day,” Mr Johannesen said.
“We have two calves on the ground by Frontier to date and they are both poll bulls.
“We will also have our new black brangus stud sire Glen Heart X-Ceed on display.”
For those in the market to take home some quality cattle of their own Mr Johannesen said this year’s catalogued selection was second to none.
“All the bulls are presented in working order, not in their suit and tie,” he said.
“They have all been vaccinated, will be pre-treated for ticks to ensure immediate clearance into tick free areas and are ready to go out and do their job.
“The females on offer represent a broad selection of genetics and include cows and calf units as well as heifers.”
The open day will include morning tea, a bazadaise steak barbecue lunch and there will be a number of trade displays including from Ag Solutions. The day finishes at 4pm. Everyone is welcome at Ironie, 310Ward Rd, Malarga.
