Willawa to star at Nar­ro­gin


Long-es­tab­lished Willawa Mur­ray Grey stud will of­fer five bulls at this year’s

In­vi­ta­tional Bull Sale in Nar­ro­gin — a first for the stud.

Willawa stud prin­ci­pal Viv Giles, of Lake Ma­genta, said she was pleased with the con­di­tion of all her live­stock, af­ter floods in Fe­bru­ary af­fected the amount of pad­dock feed avail­able and forced ear­lier than an­tic­i­pated hay sup­ple­men­ta­tion.

In ad­di­tion to hav­ing 100 Mur­ray Grey breed­ers, Ms Giles runs 5200 head of sheep and has a 3500 hectare crop­ping pro­gram. “The 2018 sale team, sired by Ayre Park Fonzie, are look­ing great with soft­ness, length and struc­tural sound­ness,” Ms Giles said.

“They are show­ing good na­ture and low birth­weights, and scan fig­ures and weights will be on dis­play on sale day.”

Ms Giles said freight would be avail­able for all Willawa bulls pur­chased.
