High quality Angus bulls - 230 in total - will be sold at this year’s annual Booroomooka Angus Bull Sale which is to be held on Friday, August 17 at Keera, Bingara.

All the sale bulls are rigorously selected for fertility, structural soundness, good type and quiet temperament.

Sinclair Munro said the Booroomooka cow herd was unique, developed since 1926 on hilly native grass country.

“The cows are resilient - adapted to cope with lower quality native grasses and seasonal fluctuations,” he said. “Booroomooka cattle are renowned for resilience, high fertility, outstanding doing ability, good weight gain with high carcass quality.”

Mr Munro said buyers have a quality choice of bulls that are leading in growth, calving ease, fertility and carcase traits.

“169 bulls are better than breed average for calving ease, 193 are better than breed average for growth, 205 are better than breed average for days to calving  and 221 bulls are better than breed average for marbling,” he said.

“This year buyers have a quality choice of 34 sons of Matauri Reality, a highly proven easy doing calving ease sire with high marbling and large scrotal size. Other exciting sires of the sale bulls include: Emperor (25 sons), PA Full Power (20 sons), Bartel E7 (14 sons), Stewie (14 sons). Our new sire Booroomooka Kingy K9 has 23 sons with impeccable structure combining growth, frame, length and doing ability with high marbling.”
