Com­plete dis­per­sal of the Wither­swood fe­males

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - NEWS -

WE would like to bid farewell to all our many Wither­swood sup­port­ers and friends.

We are sad to be leav­ing an in­dus­try that we love, and where we feel we have greatly con­trib­uted to the ge­net­ics of the An­gus breed.

We were for­tu­nate in­deed to have made the de­ci­sion in the early days to pur­chase some of the best ge­net­ics avail­able in the in­dus­try.

Some 20 years ago, as part of the se­lec­tion process, we chose the Mil­lah Mur­rah An­gus Stud at Bathurst and Booroomooka An­gus at Bin­gara, just two of the many suc­cess­ful studs that we sourced for our ge­netic base.

Since that time, we have been very care­ful to re­tain and im­prove our won­der­ful cow fam­i­lies and have sev­eral donors and po­ten­tial donors in our herd.

On our jour­ney, we have made won­der­ful friends and have en­joyed a long as­so­ci­a­tion with many like-minded peo­ple.

It is al­ways hard to say good­bye, but the time has come for us to move on and pass our ge­net­ics on to oth­ers who will take our work to an­other level.

We will cer­tainly be watch­ing and fol­low­ing this progress with great in­ter­est.

Time is clos­ing for our Oc­to­ber 19 sale day, and Oc­to­ber 18 open for in­spec­tion day.

As ad­ver­tised, in the sale we will have 290 cows and calves, in­clud­ing re­cip­i­ents and em­bryo calves.

Our first calvers with their calves will be a sale high­light, as will 135 weaner heifers.

What that is telling us, is that qual­ity shines through in the dry con­di­tions.

This is your op­por­tu­nity to se­cure qual­ity fe­males with calves by lead­ing in­dus­try sires.

Over our time in the An­gus in­dus­try, we have al­ways been true to the ‘Wither­swood method’ of suc­cess by us­ing su­pe­rior ge­net­ics, with par­tic­u­lar em­pha­sis on struc­ture, growth, fer­til­ity and mus­cle.

We hope to see you at the sale. John and Joan Woodruff, and all the Wither­swood team, Taminick
