Spring Bull Sale 2018

WEDNESDAY 5th SEPTEMBER 2018

HILLGROVE, BOOROWA NSW | 1pm Auction

In the preparation of these bulls I believe there are two things that separate our bulls from others in the breed. Firstly, each bull is given a full veterinary supervised serving test. This is a demanding and time-consuming process but critical for understanding each bull’s ability to serve.

Secondly, we focus on making these cattle true to type by not supplementary feeding them. Despite the tough season we have minimised supplementary feeding of the sale bulls to approximately six weeks during the Autumn period where they were fed with DDG pellets. No bulls at Kenny’s Creek have been fed on whole white cotton seed. Beyond this they have been fed exclusively on grass and it was only due to the challenging climatic conditions that we undertook the DDG pellet feeding. In doing this these bulls are ready for joining in spring.

In the sale we have 29 lots bred by Kenny’s Creek Angus using artificial insemination, these include Kenny’s Creek H16, H147, K2 and J223. All of these bulls display a balance of growth and carcase which we prize in our stud and commercial herd.
