Tara stud of­fer­ing 18 of top qual­ity

Countryman - - MCBA GINGIN BULL SALE - Tara M38, one of seven Li­mousin bulls on of­fer from the Tara stud at the Gin­gin Bull Sale.

The Kup­sch fam­ily, of Black Tara An­gus and Tara Li­mousin studs, is look­ing for­ward to of­fer­ing an­other qual­ity line-up of bulls at the Gin­gin Bull Sale on March 1.

In to­tal 18 bulls will be on of­fer, rep­re­sent­ing the Kup­sch fam­ily’s two studs.

Tara stud co-prin­ci­pal Brad Kup­sch said both breeds com­ple­ment each other and bring a wider se­lec­tion to the sale for dis­cern­ing buy­ers.

“We aim to pro­duce quiet, soft, fer­tile and easy-do­ing cat­tle with good early growth that are com­mer­cially rel­e­vant to the south­ern WA beef cat­tle mar­ket,” he said.

“Our fo­cus on struc­ture, tem­per­a­ment, growth and Es­ti­mated Breed­ing Val­ues are to en­sure Tara bulls are of the high­est qual­ity.”

The com­pre­hen­sive ar­ti­fi­cial in­sem­i­na­tion pro­gram used within both studs al­lows the Kup­sch fam­ily to source world­wide ge­net­ics.

“We are see­ing the re­sults of some ex­cep­tional blood­lines com­ing to­gether now,” Mr Kup­sch said.

“Ob­vi­ously it is up to pro­duc­ers to grow what best suits their con­di­tions, but the Li­mousin and An­gus cat­tle are stand-outs when it comes to meet­ing mar­ket de­mands.

“There is no better proof of this than the Li­mousin cross An­gus cat­tle that won the Har­vey Beef Gate 2 Plate Chal­lenge for two con­sec­u­tive years.”

At Gin­gin, Tara will of­fer seven Li­mousin bulls.

“They are show­ing par­tic­u­larly good con­for­ma­tion, growth and soft­ness with an out­stand­ing mus­cle pat­tern,” Mr Kup­sch said. “The Tara sale team are sons of the highly suc­cess­ful and proven sires in­clud­ing Tara E16 (by Romn Jus­tice), Man­dayen For­tune and Man­dayen Eveready.”

This will also be the first year Tara will of­fer black-coated Li­mousin bulls at the sale.

“For those pro­duc­ers who want to add the mus­cle def­i­ni­tion, car­cass traits and prof­itabil­ity of the Li­mousin breed and still re­tain a black coat, the black Li­mousins are a fan­tas­tic op­tion,” Mr Kup­sch said.

“Li­mousin and Li­mousin cross cat­tle are prov­ing to be suited to ev­ery de­mand of the WA mar­ket.

“The feed con­ver­sion traits, car­case qual­ity, growth and yield, all pro­pel the pro­ducer to­wards better prof­its.

“The car­case qual­ity is most rel­e­vant in our own Tara beef la­bel, with clients con­sis­tently re­turn­ing re­quest­ing pure Li­mousin or Li­mousin cross An­gus pro­cessed beef pack­ages.”

Mr Kup­sch said 11 Black Tara An­gus bulls will be the first bulls into the sale

ring at Gin­gin and con­sist of blood­lines from S Chisum, SAV Pi­o­neer and Con­nealy.

“Black Tar Fi­nal Prod­uct M28 will be of­fered as lot 2 and is a very sim­i­lar pack­age to last year’s $25,000 sale top­per, with an out­stand­ing phe­no­type and a great spread of data from start to fin­ish,” he said.

“The sale team con­sists of easy-do­ing bulls with soft­ness and thick­ness and very true to the mod­ern An­gus. The bulls also rate well above av­er­age in their EBV growth rates (top 15 per cent or better) and mod­er­ate in birth weight, fat traits and ges­ta­tion lengths.

“The Black Tara bulls will be well suited in any south­ern herd within Aus­tralia and are bred to breed prof­itable cat­tle for the WA com­mer­cial in­dus­try.

“From the EBV in­for­ma­tion, docil­ity, struc­tural cor­rect­ness, easy on the eye style of bulls, to the se­men mor­phol­ogy test­ing and Zoetis STAR ap­proval, all Tara bulls are per­for­mance-tested and ready to work.”
