Bulls on pa­rade at Alpine An­gus

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - LIVESTOCK -

ON Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 20 Alpine An­gus is of­fer­ing 45 reg­is­tered An­gus bulls at their sale com­plex at 1138 Happy Val­ley Road, Rose­white.

The bulls com­prise a com­bi­na­tion of Wel­come Swal­low and Alpine An­gus ge­net­ics and are tar­geted to­wards pro­duc­ing low birth, easy care, and high growth cat­tle, with a large per­cent­age of the of­fer­ing suit­able for use over heifers.

“They are sired by lead­ing USA and Aus­tralian bulls, se­lected for their proven abil­ity to pass on the above men­tioned traits,” said Alpine An­gus man­ager Chris Oswin.

The bulls on of­fer are bred from a cow herd that has un­der­gone rig­or­ous se­lec­tion pres­sure for ma­ter­nal at­tributes, tem­per­a­ment, struc­ture and type.

The Alpine An­gus herd is rated J BAS 8 on the new farm biose­cu­rity pro­gram.

All bulls have been se­men tested, in­de­pen­dently struc­turally as­sessed, PI tested and vac­ci­nated for lep­tospiro­sis, vib­rio­sis and pes­tivirus.

“These pro­cesses are an in­te­gral part of the Alpine An­gus qual­ity as­sur­ance pro­gram aimed at en­sur­ing that our pro­gram de­liv­ers qual­ity, struc­turally sound, fer­tile bulls,” said Mr Oswin.

“Ba­si­cally, we put our bulls through as many hoops as pos­si­ble to min­imise the risk of prob­lems oc­cur­ring once we de­liver them to their new home.

“This com­mit­ment is backed by as sim­ple and com­pre­hen­sive a guar­an­tee as we can pro­vide.

“The Alpine An­gus three­year guar­an­tee in­cor­po­rates the Wel­come Swal­low guar­an­tee of­fered at pre­vi­ous Wel­come Swal­low sales.”

Alpine An­gus is com­mit­ted to hon­our­ing the pre­vi­ous Wel­come Swal­low guar­an­tees.

“In the end, if there is a prob­lem, call us and we will en­deav­our to do what­ever we can to fix it,” said Mr Oswin.

Free de­liv­ery is an­other as­pect of Alpine An­gus sales.

“One of the ben­e­fits of hav­ing such a strong lo­cal sup­port base is that we can do this per­son­ally,” said Mr Oswin.

“An­other ben­e­fit of this lo­cal sup­port is that we are in a po­si­tion to deal with any prob­lems promptly and can pro­vide backup ser­vices quickly and ef­fi­ciently.”

Over the last cou­ple of years Alpine An­gus has seen the in­cor­po­ra­tion of Wel­come Swal­low ge­net­ics and a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in bull sales.

“We are thank­ful for the sup­port we have re­ceived,” said Mr Oswin.

“We will con­tinue to do all we can to pro­vide high qual­ity, per­for­mance ori­en­tated cat­tle and hon­est, re­li­able backup and ser­vice.”

ON SHOW: There will be 45 Wel­come Swal­low and Alpine An­gus bulls up for sale in Rose­white in Septem­ber.
