Folkslee Bazadaise and Bran­gus Stud Property Open Day on Oc­to­ber 22 was a re­ward­ing re­sult for suc­cess­ful Bazadaise breed­ers Rod­ney and Karen Jo­han­nesen who said the day was ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic. The day gen­er­ated in­ter­est and the pos­i­tive re­sponse re­sulted in good sales of bulls and fe­males with visi­tors com­ing from NSW, Roma, the Bris­bane Val­ley, Gympie and lo­cal ar­eas. Huge in­ter­est was shown from visi­tors with many com­ments on the high qual­ity and quite temperament of the of­fer­ing in both the Bazadaise and Bran­gus. Open day visi­tors could see for them­selves the ben­e­fit of cross breed­ing us­ing Bazadaise bulls to boost growth and in­crease car­case yield with the large dis­play of cross­bred cat­tle. Once again the suc­cess of the Jo­han­nesens poll breed­ing pro­gram was in the spot light with the im­pres­sive re­sults of the past 21 years of se­lec­tive poll ge­netic de­vel­op­ment. Vis­i­tor in­ter­est was very en­cour­ag­ing, Rod­ney said, as they could eas­ily see that the qual­ity char­ac­ter­is­tics of the full French Bazadaise are all be­ing re­tained with the added ben­e­fit of no horns. A pho­to­graphic dis­play which in­cluded pro­gres­sive photos since Rod­ney and Karen first in­spected the property seven years ago and a bar­be­cue was set up in the ma­chin­ery shed.
