We currently have a number of bulls for sale – Fleckvieh, Angus and Fleckvieh/Angus: 2 year old Autumn 2015 drop bulls; and 21 month old Spring 2015 drop bulls.
While they have all the genetics of some of the best cattle around, our bulls haven’t been supplementary fed. Because we aren’t putting a lot of money into feeding our bulls, we can sell them at a better price. They are priced well because they haven’t had the same costs go into them, not because they aren’t as good.
It is a difficult thing to compare a bull fed for sale with a bull in his work clothes. There is always the tendency to think the heavier bull on feed will put more growth into his progeny. But this is not necessarily the case. Often it is better feed and not better genetics that’s the difference. The reality is the fed bull will tend to fall away when he leaves the stud property. And it will be the bull in his work clothes that will have better performance, greater fertility and longevity.
