Featured on Sunday, January 29th Beef Week Open Day was an outstanding selection of January to March/April 2016 born “M” yearling bulls. Their placid nature stood out as well as their obvious good growth and maturity for age.
We thank our many visitors who came along to see us and inspect our bull groups and congratulate all purchasers. The demand for bulls was very encouraging indeed for the cattle business year ahead. Unfortunately this year we could not assist with the many breeders also chasing PTIC females.
It was great to see some familiar faces and repeat clients and also to welcome many new visitors to our stud from nearby and far and wide. Daylesford put on its bright summer face without the temperature rising to dangerous extremes. Many visitors found shady spots under trees and umbrellas to examine their bulls’ information booklets with a cold drink in hand.
We were particularly chuffed to welcome one repeat visitor who has joined us at most open days for many, many years, supposedly for the “company, tea and scones”, who this year decided to also take home a handy bull to join his tiny cows group. Because at last in this current climate there is value in producing good, performing cattle and even small herd owners can now invest in a good bull rather than making do with borrowing “just any” bull from one of their neighbours.
Our lucky gate prize winner of Eclipse drench this open day was Jock Macrae of Elphinstone. Congratulations to Jock. We thank Merial for sponsoring this prize for our open day visitors as a part of their ongoing support to High Spa twice yearly open days. It is valued and appreciated as is Allflex’s open day support and participation.
Bulls will continue to be available throughout the year (and also as High Spa joining sires come out of their respective herds.) Keep updated via our website www.highspa.com.au
