BEEF EXPO A BLACK OUT!!

Te Pari Beef Expo 2015 has been a fantastic time for Angus! As a breed, we have done extremely well in the show ring, in the sale ring and on the plates, with Forbes & Angus Cameron from Ashhurst (Angus) taking away the Grand Champion prize at the 2015 Beef + Lamb New Zealand Steak of Origin Awards on Monday night.
Te Mania Jonah 13588, an Angus bull bred by the Wilding family of Parnassus, took out the breed's Supreme Champion award and then went on to be judged as Champion of Champions on Tuesday. This outstanding animal, which has been grazing at the Angus Bull Unit in Feilding since late 2014, then went on to fetch a sale price of $35,000 in the auction ring.
We had a number of other bulls fetching five-figure price tags, an encouraging outcome for all registered Angus breeders.
A more detailed account of the results is outlined below.

NEW ZEALAND ANGUS SELECTION INDEXES

 

There are currently two different selection indexes calculated for New Zealand Angus animals. These are the Self Replacing Index and the AngusPure Index. Each selection index describes a different production/market scenario and relates to a typical commercial herd in New Zealand that is targeting the following specifications. 

 

Self Replacing Index - Estimates the genetic differences between animals in net profitability per cow joined for a self replacing commercial herd, targeting the production of grass finished steers. Steers are assumed marketed at 525 kg live weight (280 kg carcase weight and 10 mm fat depth) at 16 months of age. 

AngusPure Index - Estimates the genetic differences between animals in net profitability per cow joined for a self replacing commercial Angus herd, targeting the production of grass finished steers for the AngusPure programme. Steers are assumed marketed at 525 kg live weight (280 kg carcase weight and 10 mm fat depth) at 18 months of age with a significant premium paid for marbling.

JOB VACANCY - SCOTLAND

We are looking to recruit someone to work alongside one other member of farm staff but with an emphasis on developing the Moncur Herd of 30+ Pedigree Aberdeen Angus Cows, with the ability to bring out cattle for show and sales to a high standard, but due to the existing size of our herd this would not be a full time job. Therefore the person employed would have to multi-task and be competent with tractor and fork lift work to carry out for example baling, driving off grain and tractor work associated with looking after the cattle and other tasks involved with the daily running of the farm.
