Raise the bar

Meaty: Embryo packages from the joinings of Reiland Bouquet Q36 to Sterling Pacific and Reiland Quarterback Q011 will be sold as Lots 19 and 20.

Reiland Angus is preparing to celebrate 50 years of committed Angus breeding with the “Raise the Bar” sale of 100 elite registered females on February 11.

To be held at Killimicat Station, Tumut, the Raise the Bar registered female sale will feature 34 joined females with calves, 46 pregnancy-tested-in-calf females, six leading edge weaner heifers and 11 elite embryo and semen packages.

The sale marks the 50 years of the registered herd although the Lucas family were breeding commercial Angus prior to this time.

Co-principal Mark Lucas said the offering focused on the leading-edge genetics selected from the significant number of young cow/calf pairs and heifers within the herd.

Past steer performance has resulted in top five per cent compliance for growth, carcase and marbling.

Mr Lucas said the offspring and/or genetics of all pre-eminent cow families would be offered.

“The sale represents a major opportunity for registered and commercial producers to invest in quality, young females with exceptional genetic contribution via either calf at side or pregnant,” he said.

The sale starts at 2.30pm.

It will be physical through the ring and interfaced with AuctionsPlus with a catalogue available through the selling agents Elders/Nutrien Ag Solutions or online at AuctionsPlus.
