Decades of data help build quality in herd
LANDFALL Angus stud will hold its 14th annual spring bull sale on September 13, offering 110 performance-recorded twoyear-old bulls.
The bulls on offer represent industry-leading sires as well as elite young Landfall sires coming through the breeding program.
The team at Landfall continue to travel across Australia and globally to inspect and select genetics for use in the breeding program that are most suitable for and relevant to commercial beef production in southern Australia.
The sale bulls have been selected for their ability to enhance the rate of genetic gain while maintaining sound and consistent phenotype.
Landfall’s Frank Archer said the sale offering provided a great opportunity to breeders currently growing their numbers with approximately half of the offering suitable for heifer joining.
Mr Archer said Landfall had been recording performance with Breedplan for nearly 40 years with large volumes of data analysed to ensure the genetic package is accurate and reliable.
Animals are run in large contemporary groups in a commercially orientated production system with a particu- lar focus on the number one profit driver in fertility.
The past six months has seen further growth in the Landfall herd with an increase in breeding numbers. This spring 1350 registered females will calve, an increase of nearly 200 on last year, with increasing numbers helping maintain a low cost of production. One of the key motivators in growing the Landfall business is to continue to provide the best value genetics to the commercial beef sector.
Mr Archer said Landfall genetics had a proven track record for nearly 70 years and were backed by integrity and high quality of service.
Sale bulls can be inspected by appointment.
