Sale shapes up

Bulls ‘pre­sented in work­ing or­der, not their suit and tie’

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

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.
