On behalf of myself and Mel, I would like to welcome everyone
to our 32nd on farm sale.
It has been a great season on the sunny south coast with plenty of sun and enough rain to give great grass growth. Our two year olds have certainly reflected that, looking fantastic with lots of grunty heads.
Progeny from Split Ends, Sefton and Howard (AI) have certainly shone through with four heads over 6 kg in the sale line up. Our early lots pack a lot of velvet punch, with thick round beam. Lot 1 with 6.42 kg of velvet on a big cruisy stag takes a lot of beating as a sire.
Size is very important to us which comes through in this year’s line-up, with stags with good wean and 12 month weights complemented by quiet temperament.
We have retained one of our two year olds as a sire. He is a Howard son from AI which cut 5.42. While not super heavy, he has a straight round beam and near perfect style, plus he is big and super quiet in the shed.
The yearling hinds are represented by all our sires with 12 month weights up to 113 kg.
There is a great choice of proven bloodlines to choose something from to complement and enhance your breeding programme. Breeding is a long term game so not investing in the quality animals can have long term implications for farms future animal performance.
As always cataloguing two year olds before the Christmas break has its challenges. There will be some that won’t have velvet weights but as always these will be available online along with sale live weights in the early New Year.
We hope you have a great Christmas and New Year and that we see you at Arawata on Thursday 12th January.
Kind Regards, John and Mel Somerville
