Weona bran­gus bulls all set to go to work

The Northern Star - Northern New South Wales Rural Weekly - - News -

SIT­U­ATED at Leeville, 12km south of Casino, Weona Bran­gus Stud joined the Aus­tralian Bran­gus Cat­tle As­so­ci­a­tion in 1983.

Since then it has de­vel­oped in size and qual­ity to be­come one of the best known bran­gus studs in Aus­tralia.

Weona has sold bulls and fe­males to four states across the coun­try and is cur­rently run­ning 400 reg­is­tered bran­gus fe­males plus their re­place­ments.

“We feel bull se­lect­ing is very im­por­tant in our herd. We like to pro­duce bulls that will go out and pro­duce veal­ers for the vealer mar­ket, and stud sires for the stud mar­ket,” said Juanita Trus­tum, whose par­ents own the stud.

“Weona has sup­ported the Casino All Breeds since the be­gin­ning. This year we will be of­fer­ing 17 bulls at the sale.”

Weona bulls are pre­pared on a corn silage ra­tion and are ready to go out and work. All bulls have been se­men tested. Th­ese bulls are ris­ing three years old. Weona will also be sell­ing at the Grafton An­gus/Bran­gus sale on Au­gust 5.

“We will be of­fer­ing 10 bran­gus bulls and 20 com­mer­cial bran­gus heifers,” Juanita said.
