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
posted by: Sarah - Angus NZ, 2 months ago, on 1st Apr, 2015 2:42pm
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. Read more...
